Door number two, I'm totally OK with parts of things and out of the two, by far this is the cleanest image, composition-wise. I don't like the vertical distraction produced by the room corner in the first. Both have uneven light which could be maybe fixed in post. And, finally, I *do* read the music and am very happy most of my tuba parts aren't so black. ;0)

Haha...take a shot a minute for ten years and you'll get 5.265 million photos. Do der math...
I say this about Williamsport but then look around with a tourist eye and there really is a lot of stuff, just see it every day.
The one time I was there I was camera-less and astonished with the area. Drat.
...that's fine, but, really, you'd think (t'ink?) that we who took the plunge into the Z line would stay up on things...kinda? So, you "informing" is a nice redundancy, but gets folks thinking in a negative direction, eh?
Every manufacturer goes thru this. Nikon is being forthright, taking ownership of the issue and offering to repair cameras affected. They sound like a good vendor to me.
...yup. I'm not concerned at all, if I have to take mine in for anything I hand carry to Nikon in LA and they'll do whatever is necessary. <shrug>
...I went to the Nikon site when this came up (Nikonians is a good resource for this stuff). It asked that I type in my serial number and I did so. Immediately received a return notification that my camera needed no maintenance. I notice you only shoot Canon, why are you so interested? I'm happy...going out the door to shoot with the thing!
...just a certain range of serial numbers. Mine is fine...
Topaz Studio, AI Remix is the main thing. I use it last after lots of other tweaks that are different for every image. If you try it, play with blends in the Remix.
...thanks, I haven't done alot of "Studio" so now will dive in a little!
Very friendly reply. Have a nice day.
...use the "Quote Reply" button. Then we know whom you are addressing.
So you're saying just give in to the slave master, eh?
Yup...if you want to use the best tools around. Man, what's wrong with trying to improve a craft? Renting tools or not? <shrug>
Looks like Adobe users are either fan boys or trolls if non users disagree with them. I do photo retouching and can tell you that Photoshop updates have provided significant improvements in content aware, for example
*I* don't give a flying fook if somebody disagrees with me. But I guess I'm still a "fan boy" or a "troll." Uh, and, yes, PS is pretty cool in the retouching realm. This is a funny thread!
I did download and try the free trial of Affinity Photo. I tried it and then removed it from my computer. It doesn't do an awful lot of what photoshop does.
Glad you like it, but it isn't as good or better than photoshop.
...yah, in order to give a good assessment, one must be *good* at both softwares, seems to me he needs to work in Photoshop for awhile (like, a few years!) before passing judgement.
...whatever...I use and need the software and that's that.
...betcha there are many Utube vids on your camera. I find them invaluable...although I've learned to read a few comments before viewing!
