The potential problem there is whether or not the equipment will be in the same positions, AND whether or not he'll have that nice puddle for the reflection. From my perspective (as a non-diesel...

Well, it is a cloudy day shot, but not a bad one. Even if you never get it on RP, it's still a keeper for your personal collection. I would re-crop and lose some of the non-pertinent stuff on the...

I'm not much of diesel guy, so take my comments in that context.

Hi Bob,

I suspect that the number of clicks on your shutter has something to do with it. The more you shoot, the quicker the problem may manifest itself. I have known folks who developed the...

Bob,

You may want to consider proactively sending your 750 back for the shutter recall. If you call them, they will send you an RS label, so you can box it up and just drop it at UPS at no charge...

I've not found the piezoelectric shakers to be that effective. Most of the dust that sticks either has to be blown off or wet-cleaned. My solution is not to change lenses outdoors. That really...

LOL! I figured as much. It was just too much of a coincidence that the two of you seem to shoot very similar scenes. Every time I see an NYC transit image, I am pretty sure it is from one of you...

So, the $64,000 question is: Does Dennis know Eugene? I have often wondered, as they tend to shoot similar-looking scenes. In this case, they were clearly at the same station at the same time on...

Hi Loyd,

You will need to post the actual links to the rejections. Rejected photos do not have valid photoids, so no one is able to see the images that you are referring to. :-)
