Thanks mate. Nice nature photos.

I agree about the car in the back, tho I don't have original RAW files since I had a major data loss beginning of the year.

Thought that was RAID. The one where it duplicates your files on 2 drives.

raid doesn't protect from a lot of issues. like malware, system being destroyed, fire ect. you want an onsite copy, offsite and then offline (often the last 2 are the same but really they should be separate)

RAID protects you from hardware failures (to varying degrees). Backups protect you from data loss.

RAID is just a way of combining several drives into one virtual one. Depending on the level you get redundancy but it's not a backup. Backups are a copy of your data you don't touch. RAID may offer redundancy but you still work with live data. That is by definition not a backup. You can have a RAID system as a backup system but then you just put them there and don't touch them. RAID redundancy only protects your from failing drives. Nothing else. There are many other ways to damage your data a simple RAID with live data will not cover. Accidental deletes, accidental saves, ransom ware, malware in general. None of that is being covered by a RAID with live data. Theft, vandalism, power surges, natural distasters, none of that is being covered with an on site backup - that's why you need an off-site backup. The only real protection against malware and similar stuff is an offline backup - you dump your date and as soon as it's done, you take it offline and store it off-site. Tapes are great in this regard.

 

A RAID mirror only mirrors your files and all changes - you make a stupid modification and save it? That's done. You erase it completely? That's done. You've been infected with ransom ware? That's done. If one drive fails, you don't have redundancy anymore and you're working with live data without any form of protection. And if both drives are of the same model and the same age, the other drive will most likely fail within days or weeks.

 

Bottom line: RAID IS NOT A BACKUP!

I've never really been a huge fan of B&W photos, hence why I print all my assessments with colour to get those brownie points if anything from a shine of colour.

Aside from that this photo sorta looks like the dog is a mafia boss of some kind with the light shading some areas out a the blinds being down (but not closed) to show a little of mystery. In all efforts I'll give this a 7/10, the main negative bring I don't like B&W still, and a slight negative being the blinds not being closed enough. On a side note that looks like a very old couch.
______________________________________________________________________________________________
 

The couch is some hideous shade of poo brown, so it wasn’t a color I felt went well with the direction I wanted. I liked the contrast though, hence the decision to go Black and White. 
 

The blinds were fully closed, however, my Dad’s other dog tore a giant gaping hole on the side. That is the light you’re seeing in the foreground. For a spur of the moment shot, not a lot I can do about that.

Everything is sharply in focus. Seems like a decent camera for a Chinese phone. Here's one I took last night with my Note 4.

It's pretty good for a 10MP photo from a 40MP lens. It lives up to the reviews. Better than my Fiancee's iPhone 11. Zooms in alot further aswell.

 

Plus, Android is always a bonus IMO.

I was limited to a laptop for the previous four years, since my old pc gave up. Life isn't great at all times mate. Maybe I know what's RAID, maybe I used it. Maybe I worked with it, and with centralised data backups, and with crazy technologies like Hewlett Packard Indigo, for example. Maybe I've done a lot of great things, and I'm just having a long bad patch now. Not really a reason to presume I need tutoring and such tone. Maybe not everyone has same opportunities at the same time. Best regards to you. Thanks for the advice.

So I finally got my 3rd dream doggo. A Siberian Husky and she is amazing, very calm temperament and very smart pupper. This shit was taken 2 weeks ago
 

this shot taken with the following

Camera: Canon EOS R

Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM

Settings: 1/1250, f/4, ISO 100, 200mm, using VND drop in filter

something about the plants bokeh doesn't look right to me. The dog looks great and the exposure is spot on.

 

Canon SL2 Helios44-m 1/160 F2 iso200. adjusted the WB some in post. the sky was extremely orange at even at 3200 it was really hot.

The bokeh is just how it turned out. the main thing is that the subject matter is in focus, which is the dog. 

 

On you your shot. I do like it even though its not a subject matter that interests me, got a post apocalyptic, cinema feel to it. personally I would have used a tripod, closed that aperture, maybe something like f/11 and done a long exposure and get more  of the frame sharper. That's just what I would have done for my way of shooting,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is photography that is my strongest skill. Motorsports, spent 2.5 years practicing my panning skills over 84 weekends at my local track. This shot was not at my local track, was taken at Silverstone for WEC and is one of the support races. What I personally love about this shot is that it shows the workings of the Aerodynamics from the strong heat haze from the track. The driver of the car, sponsor and the team loved this photo they got in touch and now licences the photo from me

 

Camera: Canon EOS R

Lens: Sigma EF 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports

Settings: 1/80, f/7.1, ISO 100, 600mm, Variable ND Drop-In filter used, Handheld Shot

Holy shit that pan is cripsy. You say you spent two years working on your pans, was there any trick to your practice or just volume? I posted my best pan a few pages back and it's no where close to your shot, but I'm really proud of it (only crisp shot in about a thousand attempts lol). In another life, given no restrictions, I think I'd want to be a motorsports photographer. It looks like an incredibly challenging vocation, but it feels unlike any other type of photography out there. Completely unique, I love it.

Edit: I just looked up how much the Sigma 150-600 weighs, god damn man you did that hand held?

 

In the before times, I went with my buddy to the airport to shoot at golden hour. Totally worth the $7 in parking at the very least to watch the planes. I like this shot because it almost feels like a landscape shot, but of the modern concrete jungle instead of the more traditional nature. That and the Arizona sun around 6PM is McGorgeous. Canon EOS 6D, Canon EF 24-105 F4L IS USM, 24mm, 1/160", f/4.0, ISO 200.
