It Never Ends

One of the things I love about photography is there's always something more.  There another subject, in another place, with other people, using different gear, trying different techniques, to create new work.  There's always room to learn and improve.

Sometimes this can be an issue when we look back at earlier work and lament opportunity lost and results that we could improve on with the experience gained in the meantime.  Mostly, I find it a real joy to be able to absorb more and more both in breadth and depth of the totality of photography, to continually be challenged and strive to improve.

Today I was looking at one of my favourite sites and discovered a complete gem of a page that gave wonderful insight into a question that's been bopping around in my head since I came across a casual comment that 50mm lenses are most like our eye's focal length:  What's is the difference between a camera and our eye, and how can I get images that better represent what I see?

I'll leave you read the detail for yourself, but the answers surprised me (particularly with regard to dynamic range):
