Retzius: "a distinctly iPhone-esque design" - thats a PC way of saying it... they even copied the app icons on the touchscreen

They sure did!

waxwaine: I don´t know why but I can´t feel interest on drone shoots, at least knowing they are not made directly by human, but just selected from a bunch later.

This is similar to setting up a camera near a wildlife spot and monitoring and firing the shutter remotely at a safe distance.

RichRMA: Did a liberal ever live who didn't want to ban, regulate, prohibit, control, oversee, observe, meddle with EVERYTHING IN SIGHT?

Well I will give you a contrary example. Gay marriages.

Bernard Carns: Interesting points of view.

But the images are really flat.

Where's the dynamic range?

These are the poorest quality images I've ever seen National Geographic endorse.

Maybe National Graphic has become the drone....er zombie....

Hahaha.

But, again, the points of view are somewhat interesting.

I wanna see the picture of the eagle chasing the guy on the ground controlling the drone...

Most of the drone photographers right now are RC hobbyists and are still learning photography.

I like to put myself in a position where it is all about the image, not how it is made.

I don't know about anyone else but I'm getting sick of this "liberal" painting BS that I'm seeing more and more on discussions that really have nothing to do with politics.

My gut reaction is to criticize the first photo for the same reasons others have here but the photographer gave a good defence of his actions on another site which I have forgotten the link to. Worth checking out his side of the story.

40daystogo: In life, the vast majority of people think short term, and recognize but ignore long term consequences. Even those who pride themselves as long-term thinkers actually don't act on what they know. Hence, far-sighted people are very rare in society. Thus Adobe's CC lulls people with short term benefits.

For myself, I'm not walking into the trap of LR's false assurances that it is won't become CC-only. I'm going with either Capture One or DXO.

I think all the applications give high quality these days and for me it has come down to efficiency.

bgbs: I'm waiting for the day to come when our Speed Lights could be like mini-drones (or like little humming birds) that could stand still in mid air without a stand. Via algorithms they could quickly reposition themselves to enable you to take different shots. And be able to follow the subject on their own...etc.

Best comment here!

I like it! I also love reading the armchair photographers out there.

On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (423 comments in total)
In reply to:

nyer82: I saw this one coming a long time ago. Just look at what happened with Final Cut Pro. Eventually that'll probably completely fold into some newer itunes Moviemaker app.

I'm guessing Apple perhaps wants to concentrate on their OS, mobile products, and not be also in charge of much standalone software.

Apple really did a mis-step with Final Cut Pro but it is slowly making it's way back into the hearts of many professional editors. In the end, the drastic changes may have made it into a much more user friendly (and productive!) app.

Prairie Pal: A huge amount of human resources and money are being spent on technology that is taking the human race completely towards the wrong direction.

Yeah they said that about the Gutenberg press too.

tkbslc: So it's apparent Adobe has alienated the 50+ crowd. Hopefully the $10/mo plan will attract enough young people to make up for it.

Where do you get the idea the 50+ crowd is alienated? It's the fogies who remember having to work with film and how much easier it is now to make the final product match their imagination.
Speaking of price, years ago professionals lined up to buy imaging software costing $4000 and up to use on computers that were ten times slower than today's iPads...$10 a month for the power now available would have been an impossible dream.

Petrogel: This is not a 2014 iPhone Photography Awards winners but the ….2014 photo post editing contest !!!!!
Congrats iphone not a single unedited photo

Photographers will always want to make their shots "better" and in the old days we dodged and burned under the enlarger and frantically rubbed our photos to create heat while the image was appearing in the developer tray. I have a feeling many would consider that creative and using digital tools nowadays to be cheating.

It it were 80 years ago there likely wouldn't be a single image without burning and dodging.

G3User: The demise of photography continues. First, we are told the camera doesn't matter. Now a contest based on what camera you used. What a joke. Some are way over processed to try to achieve a look you would get with a real camera. Paid photography's decline continues also, people are going to see what you can do on a phone and say "maybe I don't need to hire someone for my daughters wedding". All these seminars preach "you can have a career in photography". They say that because they want you to pay for more seminars and more gear. But, there are hardly any paid photo jobs anymore. Professional photography, RIP.

I wonder if you would have the same complaint if it was a "Diana-only" photography awards.

tomatoketchup: Excellent... more tyros holding their gigantic pads out at arms length will now be able to swing their monstrosities from left to right, looking even more like complete tools.

They may look like tools to you but the iPad's large screen has some benefit for photography, especially for people with bad eyesight.
Poor Ansel Adams was a huge tool with that monstrous 8x10 camera.

Surprising how many people think that somehow they lose the ability to use Photoshop or other Adobe apps when this happens. I wasn't able to access "SendNow" but there are other options.
