Re: What's an appropriate photo usage fee?

Re: Canon EOS 1D Mark II

Great pictures - sorry to hear that your camera packed up.

I haven't done humidity (which is a killer), but my 1DII has been through hail, sandstorm and heavy rain without so much as a hiccup....

Re: Suggestion: Enhanced Metadata/Tagging

Keywording would apply only to your own images - it is up to the image creator to describe the image through keywords so that others may find their image more easily.

An option would be to...

Suggestion: Enhanced Metadata/Tagging

One of the issues that I have with TE/TL/TN at the moment is the limited number of ways that exist to find images. In reality, we are limited to either searching by geographical location, by...

Re: PP, or not PP?

Thank you for your diplomacy - as you point out it is the way the critique was given, not necessarily the request for information.

To brasiu: Adjustments

You make a good question on whether I retouched the colour in Photoshop and I will try and explain some of the background to how this image came about.

Re: canon 16-35 f/2.8 or 17-40 f/4 ???
