To keribar: Nikkor lens

Thanks for your kind comments, Izzet - they always mean more coming from a professional like yourself.

I'm very happy with the 24-70 lens - yes, the sharpness is good. I also have the 14-24 lens,...

To pboehringer: D700 quality

Hi Peter,

I've had my D700 only since just before Christmas. I dropped my D200 on the floor, and although I got it checked out by the Nikon Service Centre, I wasn't convinced there was no...

To stego: Composition

Hi José,

I actually shot this with all of the right hand stupa in frame, but the composition felt too symmetrical so I cropped away about 15 percent of the right-hand side. That also enabled me...

To riclopes: Hassling in Egypt

Hi Ricardo,

I wouldn't say I 'loved' Egypt - perhaps 'satisfied' is a more appropriate word - satisfied that I managed to get some good photos. But I put Egypt in the same category as Colombo - a...

Re: To banyanman: Surprised...

Sorry Peter, I can't remember now as it was a week or two back. All I remember was that it was quite a long critique where you had made some very sensible comments on both the artistic components...

To pboehringer: My wife's photo of George W. Bush

Hi Peter,

I didn't think it would be right to post it to TE in a WS because it's not my photo, but you can see it at this link:

To Polonaise: Carla Bruni

Thanks for letting me know that Nicholas Sarkozy was there without his new wife, George (I couldn’t see him very well from where I was sitting) - that would explain why when the French athletes...

To pboehringer: Globetrotting a crime?

I haven't been convicted yet, Peter, so I will have to watch my step ;) Most of my travel is related to work, but I do like to get off the beaten track at vacation time (Greenland was my last...

To Dyerco: Cropping

Hi Phil. Thanks for the critique. Sorry it has taken me so long to reply, but I somehow overlooked this before. No, this wasn't a vertical - it was landscape format, but there was a lot of clutter...

To zmfactor: Exposure details

Sorry, Wei, the correct exposure details are 1/200th, f/7.1, ISO-200. I can't remember why I entered the wrong exposure details on this. Regards . . . David (sorry for the delay in replying - I...

To ivanhenares: UNESCO World Heritage Site

Hi Ivan,

Thanks for correcting me on that. I was informed by a local government official that it was a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it was on that basis that I included the information in my...

To rabani: Overtaken . . .

Hi Bani,

Yes, you're right, I was keeping up with them in '05 and '06, but was too busy last year to spend more than a few hours a week on TE. Same this year. Not enough hours in the day to do...

To Polonaise: Decline of the American empire . . .

What a great title that would have been for this picture, George. I wish I had thought of that first. But you are always one step ahead of us with your literary genius ;))

Re: To banyanman: Wrong source!!

No problem, Andre. Travel agents have been known to exaggerate before! They probably thought that they couldn't get away with saying it is the largest desert in the world because everyone knows...

To atus: Getting to North Korea

Hi Attila,

Thanks for your critique. I flew to Pyongyang on Air Koryo from Beijing. That is the only airline operating into the DPRK. I hope you are not a nervous flyer, because they use 25-30...

To riclopes: You would hate this place, Ricardo

Artificial rocks, artificial artifacts, artificial murals, artificial everything. As an architect you might find it interesting to see how over-the-top ‘kitsch’ a place could be designed, but that’s...

To cyrrhus: "Hell on Earth"

You are right Eric – this is not a place to which I would normally go. I was attending a conference in nearby Nassau so wasn’t staying on Paradise Island. On Friday, the conference delegates were...

So glad you enjoyed the pictures in the PBase gallery. Many of them are not what you would call 'good' pictures which you would want to present for critiquing on TE, but I've tried to use...

The Gilbert Islands are in the middle of the Pacific, straddling the equator. There is now only one flight a week to Tarawa (from Brisbane via Honiara and Nauru) so it's not an easy...

To trekks: Sharpness and heat haze

Thanks for the comment, Bill. I think there is evidence of sharpness in the foreground. The background is 'fuzzy' because of the heat haze so that's why the horizon doesn't appear sharp. It was an...
