[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There's a constant "war" in dpreviews forums which brand is better, Canon or Nikon. Is it a guy thing??? Lets not forget that it's the man or woman behind the lens who makes the difference, not the brand.

This shot (in harsh light i'm afraid) was taken in Hollywood during the ceremony of Victoria's Secret Angels lingerie ladies being honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Pro photographers with their heavy equipment.

If I counted correctly the outcome Canon vs Nikon is...ex aequo!

Shot in RAW
Converted in DPP. Saved as TIFF after sharpening
Opened in PS CS3: increased clarity, saturation.
Cropped slightly
Layers, high speed pass
Resized and framed.
Sharpened a little bit more
Converted to JPEG

Hi Edwin
The fact that they are smiling and grinning, it definitely could be a bunch of Treklers on a photoshoot. Only problem why are you hiding the gals?
Good job.

lovely... i have canon ... but in most ways i think nikon is better.... wish i was wrong...what a passion and work is out there!
superb mood and composition, nice framing

Nikon wins!

Edwin, What a great shot! I love it! Nothing more to say, except plenty of photographers having another "blah" day at work! LOL

This one made me smile as much as the photographers. The note is complementary to the photo.

tfs, Lisa

Ah well, Victoria's Secrets, that explains the explosion of enthousiasm of those pro photographers.
Fantastic capture Edwin!

There is something mesmerizing about this capture Edwin,
It's hilarious that's for sure.
Great telling shot of photographers.
and all their idiosyncrasies and quirks.
Well captured my friend.

They sure were most intrigued by the subject matter!! The model must have been quite something :-) Do you have something to share about what intrigued all these photographers so much? Hehehe! Only joking - a good photo!

Wat een verschil met de vele 'lege' foto's; hier maakt de onzinnige drukte indruk; normaal zie ik bij jou zuivere en open foto's.
De humor hier: je verhaal en dat eeuwige chauvinisme; prima, geen mens ziet de marginale verschillen in deze camera's. Mijn Nikon is mijn eerste en enige; net als verkering vergeet je die eerst nooit meer.
