    I think that depends on your definition of everyday :) For me, a slingshot would be a tad large, because I like to carry a backpack to put a coat, food, drinks and so on in ;) But I'm no pro.

    Minor point - perspective is a function only of subject distance, i.e. if you have a subject that is a long way away (you are therefore likely to use a telephoto lens) then it has a "compressed"...

    A straw man is an argument designed to look like an opponent's, but which has a logical flaw in that the opponent's doesn't, thus being easy to destroy. In other words, you build a "straw man"...

    :thumbsup!:

    Whenever I do any work on photographs, I keep a clean copy of the original in case I need to go back to it. This avoids any excess artifacts creeping in.
