comment Which special effects filter produces circular highlights?
Thanks. The example is only remotely similar to what I am looking for. Please see the example I posted with the question.

comment Which special effects filter produces circular highlights?
I see! great idea the UV filter! so a circular sticker or a donut sticker or something like that. Thanks! Will experiment!

Thanks @Matt. Can you provide a link, example or more info. Do you mean something along the lines of this?.

comment Which special effects filter produces circular highlights?
@EsaPaulasto - I am very certain a filter was used I just don't know which one. I have very little knowledge of special effects filters (other than CP, ND) and would like to try producing this effect. Although Magda does use lenses that produce donut shaped bokeh it wasn't used here.

comment How to compare two different cameras in regard to a low light performance?
What research have you done so far? Which way are you leaning and why?

What is a typical post processing you do with most of your images?

comment Do professional event photographers commonly require payment in full before a shoot?
Fair points. Good to know. Thanks

comment Do professional event photographers commonly require payment in full before a shoot?
Thanks for your input. I am a little surprised because nobody else does this - services are provided, an invoice is issued, expense is approved and the bill is payed. We are an international gold mining and exploration company and very well known in that region. There is practically no chance that an invoice would not be payed.

comment What is a better marriage for my Canon 70-300 L lens: A 7D or 5d Mark iii?
Nice answer! "I am able to time the shots, rather than gunning through a sequence" makes a lot of sense

comment What is the cause for this diffused artifact around the sun?
@FinerRecliner - yeah, it visible in every shot. I am out of ideas - will leave it to the experts to decide. Almost look like there are a few clouds or haze.

comment What is the cause for this diffused artifact around the sun?
Can you post the 3 unprocessed shots? I get a similar effect when I overcook an HDR but I learned to expect all sorts of unpredictable flaring and undesirable effects when shooting sun against a uniform sky. If you can see the result in the camera preview perhaps there is a way to combat it in the field bu trying different settings. What were the the other settings aside from the obviously closed aperture? If it was an HDR processing issue i would suggest using a different software - I get better colour uniformity in Photomatix but stronger sky effects in HDR Effex Pro...

Have you considered the 6D?

comment How do rear gelatine filters compare optically with “regular” front-mounted filters? Where to buy them? How to cut them?
Thanks! How did I not find that? Already have a bunch of the microfiber cloths so I am set there. Have you used these? Can you comment on the optical quality performance?

comment Longer exposure & lower ISO or shorter exposure & higher ISO - what gives better results when photographing stars?
Thanks for the additional info @jrista! Much appreciated! I will try to take a shot @30s, f4 and the various ISO and post the unprocessed results here.

comment Longer exposure & lower ISO or shorter exposure & higher ISO - what gives better results when photographing stars?
Thanks @Matt. I figured as much and Jon touched on this in his answer as well. Once I perfect the single shot approach, I want to learn to shoot good trails (just bought a remote for this purpose) and then I will try "stacking & masking" as well - I suppose I could start shooting while there is still a little bit of light to get a good foreground exposure on the foreground layer then leave the camera set in the same position and wait until dark to shoot the multiple exposures for the stacked background.

Thanks for this great answer Jon! I will try this on the first moonless clear night.

comment Longer exposure & lower ISO or shorter exposure & higher ISO - what gives better results when photographing stars?
Thanks Matt - I also like to capture the foreground features along with the stars. If I understand stacking correctly it will align the stars (since there is a movement from frame to frame) in the multiple exposures then crop the final image. Doesn't stacking work only for the stars without any fixed foreground features?

comment How can I shoot in a studio at the widest apertures?
I use an ND filter with the same lens (f1.4 - 2.2) when outdoors all the time. Works pretty well for me. Nice shot BTW!

comment Why did “pure” photography displace pictoralism so completely?
Eloquent! Do you have a blog? And thanks you for mentioning Jamie Baldridge and John Paul Caponigro. I had no idea what I was missing.
