A different car would be great I agree.
Hoyl cow are you aggressive! Colin, I think you greatly undervalue the 200 f/2 as a portrait lens, which is what I believe is its intended purpose. I have looked at your work and it is excellent, but I consider you to be much more of a landscape/bird shooter than a wedding/portrait shooter. I wonder whether you could do the 200 f/2 justice?
And Andrew, I have no idea what made you bring up the blur. You have your style and I have mine. Can't you just leave it at that?
You don't hear from me when you post radioactive portraits :wink: You never ever hear from me about it, because I respect and admire your work.
But what I found most perplexing is that a few months back, you sent me a PM begging me to share what and how I do my processing. You were willing to learn then and I helped you, but I never thought that you will turn around and use it against me later on. I learned my lesson I guess.
Your style is faking dof? OK, sorry didn't know that.
Joseph, you have lost your mind, I have never begged you for anything, I asked about something I didn't look closely enough at, and later found to be fake, you never helped me with anything.
Am I interested in buying a 200 f2 - yes
Do I browse this thread to see what people are doing with it - yes
Would it be my sole reason for buying one - no
does it matter if visual echo takes pictures of the same car a lot of the time - no
is the composition and presentation of his images always of the highest standard - yes
why do nice people argue endlessly on internet forums about next to nowt - haven't a clue
And we've officially gone full circle (and the point has been proven). But i'm going to back out now since this forum is too sensitive to any kind of debate, critique or form of criticism.Curious.
What makes it different than faking sharpness, colors, contrast, etc.?
I could not hold back any longer, Andrew's work is far from a one trick pony. Not only are his pp skills at a master level but his composition, use of color and space is about the best I have seen on this forum.
