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

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.

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 are either professional photographers or serious amateurs, some with decades of experience, 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 makes us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

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.

The yellow lights, colorful uniforms and walls & ceiling all contrast nicely with one another. The subjects, one facing toward the camera, one in profile, create interest in the image. The composition is well balanced, keeps the eye in the photo, has two nice diagonals, the spear, and the lights along the wall. The curves of the ceiling and vertical lines of the wall further pull the whole image together and add additional interest.

The main subjects are sharp and clear while the background has a pleasant softness, making for excellent separation. The lighting and exposure are near perfect.

All in all a strong, technically correct, visual image with impact and interest.
A contest winner. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

do not let the attire fool you, those Vatican "guards" are elite Swiss solders, highly trained and the Vatican is consider an Honor post. Like the US army troops in DC who make up the "old regiment: and guard the tomb of the unknown solders. Back in Midevil days the Swiss mercenary had a tough reputation, and in one of the numerous peace treaties Switzerland was banned from providing troops to anywhere other then the Vatican. I believe either Michelangelo or DaVinchi had designed their uniform.

Love the opposing figures, creates conflict in the shot which creates interest. Love the lines, arches, etc. Light on left guards shoulder is a bit distracting as it makes my eye wander there.
