    Thanks, Steve, we have more cool stuff planned.  Long lists on a lot of ideas.  We will take them one by one.  Glad you like the hat though.  The T-Shirts are extra soft.  More cool stuff coming.

    Cool abstract. Give a try at a long narrow cropping. The white are is bright and thus draws your eye to it rather than the beautiful tonalities of the center.  Also a little less black.  You know how ima, about cropping. I really like having to try and figure out what the images is.  Nice!

    I have known Christian for a long time.  Great mate as they would say.  I love this washed out look.  I got a few emails from readers telling me the images we washed out.   I don’t think understood that it is his style.  He sent me a video on how it’s done and I took some images last night to try out.

    I have heard from Christian and he will be doing more articles for PXL and he will even do one on how he achieves this look.  I know I am looking forward to those.

    I like it.  It made me stop and look to try and figure out what it was.  I really like the BW treatment of a scene like this.  Well done.

    Hugh, I have had the opportunity to shoot with the Olympus EM1X and the camera is exceptional.  Quite big for an M4/3 camera but feature-packed.  The AF must be seen to be appreciated.  The multi-exposure large file option is sweet and can be used handheld.  The long exposure capability handheld is amazing.  The build quality of this camera is very good and so solid.  I know of no full-frame camera doing all the things this camera does. The other Olympus cameras are really nice. The beauty of hand holding a 600mm equivalent with these systems is also special.  The question for those looking at these systems is how big of a print are you going to want to make?  The Panasonic cameras are best known for their video capability.  We use a number of Pany cameras for content.

    We will try to do more with the EM1X in the future and another possible video.  I’m sure there are others that may want to chime in on this.

    Paul, good to see you here.  I’d have to jump on the bandwagon.  the bottom shot and the foreground is what makes this image really nice.

    I agree with you and I mentioned in the article about what he did but nonetheless, it is pretty cool.  It was completely spontaneous capturing the train.  Drones are controversial for sure and there are some people doing stupid stuff with them, but there are others that adhere to the rules and regulations.

    We are doing a special project in Antarctica later this year and Paul will be with us doing what should turn out to be amazing footage.  We have all the permits to do what we’re are doing.  None of it will be above wildlife or interfere with it.  Plus there other rules as part of the permit.  We will cover it in our behind the scenes when we do the project.

    Paul flies like the drone is part of him.  I couldn’t get three feet without crashing.  So, doing what he does brings a new perspective to photography with drones.  And, that’s fun and refreshing.

    Would anyone be interested in a guide to drone flying?  It’s a video tutorial I have been mulling over as an idea.

    One of the best looking cactus photos I have seen.  I always tell photographers, always look behind you.  I like the process you used.  I’m a big fan of hipstamatic and the tintype app is cool.  Just saying it’s a nice image, my 10 cents.

    Thanks Chris,  we have a list that these will be added to. Chris, and the developers are working on what solutions are available and what we will have to program ourselves.  I am thinking of doing a monthly update as an article so readers know what we are working on.

    Great to have you here.

    Thanks, Ralph.  We are in our early days and it is exciting to be back.  There are a few things we are still working on that will make the forum a bit easier to use.  The team is working on them and hopefully, you’ll notice changes as we go.  Good to have you onboard.
