My advice to the kid would be to keep at it,
but match contrast in the collage.
(the forest is flatter than the phone)

And learn about iconic art:

1.07 was my early poison also.
How the code was structured never held me back ever since from putting this amazing software to profitable use.

I have a thought for detractors but won't post it here.

I think that the camera manufacturers should suggest a RAW processor for each of their camera models.

That should deter theft and if it was the designer's intention—priceless.

The athlete is fine, but the reality of this thread was shifted by Nikon fanboys.
There's no need for humility anyway; I can take it or leave it, but give me facts and I'll humbly thank you.

On Evolution of an image article (123 comments in total)

At this level, the HDR look is something only a handful of photographers can eventually tell and be disgusted by.
They're not the commercially targeted audience IMHO.

Personally I'm more impressed by picture makers like Man Ray including whatever occasional artifacts, not takers like Ansel Adams and his credibility,
so I don't care.
Nitpicking aside, what counts in the end is if you like the picture or not.
I kindah do, but don't jump of joy.

(place your own sarcastic quotation marks where necessary : )

On Researchers follow the noise to find composite images article (38 comments in total)

Photoshop has its uses and strengths in the hands of professionals who, like magicians don't dispel all their procedures : )

Sean Elliot was wrong.
He'd probably use a sharper lens if he had one, or a sharper demosaicing algorithm.

(sorry, I didn't read most of the posts)

In reply to:

GaryJP: Interesting case.

To me the idea of making the rest of the image monochrome but the London bus red is kind of obvious, even banal. So is the use of a well known landmark.

But I guess the clincher might be the fact that he was familiar with the original image.

The judge may have considered the "copy" just as uninspired as the "original", therefore infringing on its lameness.

odoketa: That was a whole lot of iOS love! I'm glad there's one Android app!

You're not mastering art with a professional camera, you may master craft, but even that is not a given.

The iPhone 5 may still show up soon, maybe from Sprint alone? : )

I have a hint that this case won't go to the Supreme Court,
but wish it did,
to publicly define a wildly unknown legal issue
(one way or another)

most photographers, because of their political agendas didn't understand a much simpler case

This court case is almost as important in educating people who can and want to read about what art is, as the Brancusi case of almost a hundred years ago.

Photographers are a fun bunch who become ridiculous when commenting on politics.
There are a few celebrities here, like Dr. Eric Fossum and some camera designers who know their craft well and share knowledge very generously.
The DPR test lab is fantastic and while the news may seem slow to some, they are respectful of NDAs and manufactures' dissemination rules.
