About me:

My large collection of Canon FD lenses is back to life. Thanks to mirrorless cameras and adapters. I particularly love the FD 35-105mm w/macro, f/3.5, which is well known for its clarity and sharpness, and the FD 50mm, 1.2, L.

This is a clever way to generate all the money needed for their 70th anniversary parties and celebrations.

Some photography suckers will gladly hand them the money without one second of thinking.

OK, I need to stop pulling my hair off. Not much of it is left.
How on earth did #3 (the curse of coal) which looks like a picture from a whore house, or #5 (Empire of Dust) win?
What is it in these 2 pictures, in particular, that makes them even worth glancing at, let alone winning a first prize?

Looks quite easy to disassemble, but too many ribbons.

Interestingly the tech managed to change her fingernails polish during the process.
In No. 1 it was clear color, then she switched to the silver/gray/bluish color. Clear, Pink, or red would have looked better :-)

Should be renamed P9 Type L

OK, it's just my humor kicking in.

Probably so.
Maybe renaming it to Leica P9, Type Huawei

sh10453: Looks like a good product, in general.
If Microsoft really wants to penetrate the smart phone market, and to have a "plus" over the rest, they need to make this phone (or a replacement one) a dual-boot, Windows 10 and Android (of course not simultaneously).
Windows lovers will love Windows 10 and its apps (such as MS Office), and Android lovers will of course boot to Android.
Problem solved.
Otherwise, Windows phone is not going anywhere. Not many third party developers are jumping on its bandwagon.

Just a humble opinion.

Personally, I use a Windows phone, and an Android tablet. Happy with both.

I have MS office on both, the Windows phone, and the Android tablet.
I also have MS office on the laptop and desktop.
Google docs is OK, but I am more comfortable with MS Office. I have been using MS Office products since the early 1990s,
I actually do need them all (Access, Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint, Project, Publisher, Visio, and Word.

Someday we'll see the benefit of such a brilliant project.
To the nay sayers, I say that Thomas Addison should've never invented anything. Graham Bell should still be ridiculed for coming up with the idea of a telephone. The long list can go on.
Short shortsightedness is a bliss.

Thank you!!!

To each their own, but I never liked or cared for the circular bokeh at all.
I find such circles to be very distracting.

chaos215bar2: Is there some reason I can't full-screen the embedded video? (I assume this is an option that was set intentionally on the player.)

That's wrong Rishi.
Should be "Hi, my name is Lisa, how can I help you?".
That seems to be the common name they are adapting for support operators from everywhere overseas (India, Philippines, etc.).

Nice job! Thanks for the opportunity to see a picture of such animal.
I'd never dream of seeing one in Iceland. I think if I camped there for a week, I'd be frozen dead on the first night (cold weather is my enemy No. 1).

I'm sure it's lovely for many people to live there, but I don't envy them. I can only imagine how harsh it gets during winter times. I thought Michigan weather was too cold!!!
An Icelander mentioned in the comments that he spent like 5 hours looking for a seal to shoot, and he couldn't find one!
I think he must've missed that Mr. Garcia spent 4 years, camping for a week at a time, to come up with these images.
That's a heck of a lot of rain and cold to absorb!!

Mr. Garcia: How do you travel to these areas, especially when most roads are closed during winter?
Once again, thanks for sharing these beautiful images.

I hear you, and I also still remember Mr. Bill Gates' statement (while I was a college student), where he said that no one will ever need more than 64KB of RAM :-)

The point is that sometimes it is hard to predict what will tomorrow brings.

Of course I will dream about it.
Pros and semi-pros also buy & use computers and laptops.
It won't be long before we see such readers/writers implemented in higher end machines.
Just a few years ago, smart people said don't ever dream about having 64-bit machines in the hands of consumers!!!
Of course now my great grandmother has a 64-bit machine :-)
