This is a perfect example of why I still own my EOS 100 35mm.. And you have to love that it works with all of my new lenses.. :)

Fabulous!

I have to ask, though, if most of those images were posted here in a challenge, how many comments along the line of: I'd like to see it in color; I wish the eyes were in better focus; It looks like you focused on the elephant's trunk, not the eye; The sky is too noisy; It would be better if the sky wasn't blown out in the upper left. ;)

All of them would probably be found to be lacking to someone's taste, in some manner.. FWIW, I'd bet that the ratio of good/bad comments would be heavily skewed in the positive/good direction....

who gives a rats ass what people on this site would comment on it if it was a challenge? Those photos are pure works of art regardless of comments people would leave on DPC...

There's people here that would look at the picture of the girl running from napalm and complain that it wasn't in focus, or it should have been straightened, or it could use a levels boost.

Totally missing the point.

I had the good fortune to see Nick Brandt's images on display at the Young Gallery in Brussels (around 2004/2005 I don't precisely remember as I was travelling to Brussels regularly on business at that time). It was an incredible exhibition.

Geez, lighten up dude!! Your undies are too tight today. Have you no understanding of the significance of this - ;) ?

I don't wear any undies, my nuts don't fit in anything smaller than a wheelbarrow.

I like that one too. I also love the Lions Head to Head one, superb. They're all fantastic images.

Those are really cool. Thanks for posting.

I remember seeing Nick Brandt's work in Photolife. Awesome stuff and he does it all in camera pretty much with very little manipulation in the dark room (and none on the computer if I remember correctly)

Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely stunning.

11"x14" print...starting at 910 Euros

To those of us in America, that's $1,226.58 (today)
