Expressing opinions and wishes to a service provider is always a good idea.  Expecting them to implement them all is sure to disappoint.

That's why it would be so nice IF the selection of camera profiles where at the top, rather than the bottom of the GUI in Lightroom. I agree, set profile first, then mess with sliders.

Something I recall you and others requested (and I and many others supported) many versions ago.

Apparently that concept has fallen upon deaf ears.

I would say that HCB's photography is neither about physics or philosophy. [...]

But certainly HCB's /philosophy/ is partly about philosophy.  His philosophy includes things such as the treatise on "decisive moment", and the related reasons why he did not crop except in rare circumstances.  That's what the topic of this thread is.  These things are all of course implicated in the semantics and aesthetics of his work, which is also philosophy.

Not only indoor plumbing, but also central heating, which is real nice at the end of January! :-) (Except that it dries the air and clogs printers).

Maybe it has something to do with conforming to contest rules - who knows, who cares, can live without the Mini iPad - it was a good opportunity to tell them I'm not interested in gimmicks and make-believe.

First you need to attend a workshop from xrite to study product nomiculture and marketing efforts, how to continually support 15 year old hardware with new software and platoue the pricing upgrades into as many catagories as you can list on a single web page! OBTW engineers are thought of marketing gurus because everyone at x-rite frequently uses LSD like vitamins.

Now that there are plenty of calculators for it does anyone uses a laser distance meter to see where exactly they need to focus, for either single shot or the fewest shots needed for a focus stack?
Assuming the composition is done and you want more DOF.

Why not try it? I shoot at approximately hyperfocal distance. I will focus a little further out and when in doubt I will bracket with different f-stops. I have done focus stacking from time to time, but often the results are not that great compared to stopping down. Don't worry so much about diffraction as you might thing. Just bracket as I mention and judge for yourself. Change the sharpening appropriately and in Lightroom turn up the detail slider to 100 when shooting at f/16 or further stopped down. It helps. Some details are lost, but not as much as you might think.

Jimmy, ario,

Thanks for your replies.  Will give it a try and see what happens (hopefully nothing).

I would agree on that.

Best regards

Back on topic:  I too prefer viewing images with a mid-gray to black background, but am resigned to the overall preference for black text on white. Maybe photographs on the site should be surrounded with nice big black borders?

Don't feel bad, when I first got my Canon 8300 I couldn't buy an extended warranty because somebody at headquarters thought New Mexico was a third world country.  Which is not too far from the truth, actually.  OTOH, I hear indoor plumbing is now commonplace in Canada.

I bet it's a mistake.  They probably should have said "North America" but slept through their geography and history classes.
