Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
One camera setting that ruins your pictures
(and more, keep reading):
 

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch DSLRs, lenses, and other gear, while collecting sales commission. We don't sell photography tutorials, books, DVDs and courses, while promising that your photography will improve only if you buy what's being promoted.

Instead, we have other people, who've already become great photographers, share with you what they learned, what gear they use, which products really work and which are useless, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what make us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

Among our users, we have some of the most talented photographers in the world share advice that you won't find even in the most expensive subscription magazines. That's because some of them only post on our website, so you won't find this information anywhere else! Some of them post under an alias, others disclose their studio name, it's up to them. But in either case you get to read and discover photography techniques that will make you very good at taking pictures.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our photography mailing list distribution. Right away, you'll get access to more photography-related material (pictures, tips, tricks, reviews) than contained in all photography books and magazines you could ever buy. And you'll get all that for free.

Don't delay! Join the best photography community on the Internet.

After spending two day in Berlin, Oh, the one thing I noticed about Berlin was that the Amish were always in motion.

A panned shot of an Amish Girl. I never realized how diverse the buggy's were.

I saw a few of these. Seemed to be more for the younger generation.

I'm sure that the Amish make improvements on their original prototypes, just like all of us. This looks like someone took a bike(or two)plus some extra parts and reconstructed them into a sturdy onesie.
Seems like sitting ON the horse would work just as well.
Interesting photo.

Some luck involved to get the shot. Took me a few tries. I took 4 of the girl passing by for this one. The best of the bunch.

I think sitting on a horse works too. Only two problems:
1) The ride in the cart is a lot easier on the bottom
2) This was a two seater. That's a bit difficult to put two on a horse.

I saw a few of these buggies but I didn't see two that were alike.

Great shot, Russ. As usual. The Amish breed some of the finest draft and standardbred race horses in the world. A sight to see. Beautiful photo! Thanks!

The horse had some natural edge light around the body. I think that was the main reason I liked this photo. Light was being clipped by the building behind.

Thanks MagicRay. This photo is a bit different for me.
Besides the light I like the fact I got the Horse and girl fairly sharp with the motion in the horses legs.

Another winning shot. I like the lighting most of all, but also interested to see the sulky. It resembles those using in harness racing, not clearly not the same thing.

I agree. Before people consider to call themselves 'professionals' they should look at the work Russ, CaptainC and other 'true' professionals on the UHH do. :thumbup:
