Clint Dunn: What a terrible idea. It's bad enough that everybody already shoots the same old spots without encouraging it even further. How many pics of mesa arch and lone tree of Lake Wanaka do we really need?? Just another reason to never geotag my photos....

@Renault5 - Of course everyone is free to take photos of whatever they like...and flood flickr/500px with a few more million Lake Wanaka photos...fill your boots.

@AustinMN - 'A tool is just a tool' - And a cliche is just a cliche but thanks for that profound bit of wisdom.

On article 2017 Oskar Barnack award offers €80,000 prize fund (55 comments in total)

I wonder if she would have won if she hadn't titled the photo, 'The Unbearable, the Sadness and the Rest'.

Step one - Take average photo
Step two - Create artsy, fartsie title to try and give meaning to said photo.

bakhtyar kurdi: attention behind such judgement is forcing photographers to think stupid and kill there talents, as choosing an ugly girl as miss where and where, how many of you see misswhere ugly but you are afraid to say it loudly? and think with yourself (there is something wrong with me) , so we all get sick and wait someone to decide for us who is beautiful who is ugly, which nation are evil and has oil or poppy, it is just some brainwashing exercise .
with respect to the cute girl in the picture and the photographer also that probably has no role in what happened.

I don't understand a single thing you just said.

I'm not sure why everyone is so surprised about the amount of money in this lawsuit. Firstly, it's the USA which has got to be the most litigious country in the world. Secondly, as any practicing lawyer can tell you they don't start a lawsuit asking for what's 'reasonable', they start at the very top and negotiate from there. In this case 'the very top' is asking for 100% of Chipotle's earnings the last 10 years. In reality maybe she gets a few hundred thousand, or maybe she gets a lifetime of burritos who knows.

In reply to:

CharlottePhotog: I'm thinking she's in public, so fair game. Photographer should have put a blanket release statement on the door stating if you entered the premises you were ok with being photographed. However it sounds like the image was altered. Can the photog claim that the image taken, that she didn't approve of, wasn't the one that was used and he has created a new artistic interpretation piece that was similar, but not an exact copy of the original therefore she may or may not look like the girl in the image.

You obviously have zero knowledge about how this all works...but please tell us more.

Adam Sharp: Joke what a stupid amount of money .. couple of hundred should do it and free lunch .. greedy cow

OK...let's change things. Instead of it being a model release issue let's say Chipotle stole your photo and used it for the advertising for a 10 year span, are you still happy with 'a couple hundred and a free lunch'??

FuhTeng: I think I'd prefer 5 as a monochrome. The ugly red hampers the lovely symmetry to me. I really like #7, reminds me of my home state.

Yes, I agree...would be much better as a B&W

It will be pretty cool to see this in new Android phones. The camera support is nice but the big news here is 25% less power consumption....which should translate to much improved battery life.

In reply to:

Old Cameras: The fun thing about a Polaroid was watching the picture develop and you had that one physical copy of the image. If you can preview an image, not to mention edit and decide whether or not to print it at all, the spontaneity is gone. Few people print images anymore. They have them on their phones along with their virtual music and their virtual social lives.

Hey...don't be knocking 'virtual music'. I've got almost my entire music collection on hard drive now and much of it is hi-res format. Beats the heck out of thousands of CD's/Tapes/Records laying all over the place.

In reply to:

noflashplease: I shudder to think about the image quality of that tiny 20MP sensor.

This is not instant film photography, like Fujifilm's Instax, but just a cheapo sub-smartphone digicam with a digital printer. As a concept, ZInk (Zero Ink) can't compete in terms of quality with even the lowest end inkjets, which is why it didn't find a widespread application before the liquidation of the "real" Polaroid.

Pretty sure the polaroid crowd isn't too focussed on quality...if they were they wouldn't shoot polaroid. So...given the target audience I think this thing is a good idea. Besides, it's only a 3x4 print even lowly cell phones do just fine at that size.

I'm pretty sure that any bride who listens to this 'advice' doesn't know what a 'full format' camera is anyway.

Any bride with half a brain would just pick a photographer based on their portfolio and price.

sierranvin: I don't think Cartier-Bresson is going to be displaced soon...

So sick of everyone referencing Cartier-Bresson. First off, he wasn't a wedding photographer. Second of all....who cares....what's with you people worshipping the feet of this guy like he's some sort of deity. Was he a great photog?? Sure he was, but there are a lot of great photogs today and over time they will get their due. In fact, I would hazard to say that because of the dawn of digital there are more great photographers then ever before.

Digital was the great teacher...providing instant feedback and the ability to learn on your own. Worked for me.

daddyo: Cool! It's great to see that someone photographed Sinbad's wedding! Or is just a scene from some recent movie remake?

Nice....you win ignorant post of the day award.

Clint Dunn: Am I the only one here tired of seeing photos of the lone tree at Wanaka??? It's like everyone in the last few years have shifted from shooting Mesa Arch to lone tree at Wanaka or the same bloody waterfall in Iceland. It's hard to be original these days and I include myself in that statement.

@John M Roberts - Another Earth would be nice:) Actually what people need is an eye to see things differently instead of trying to re-create what has been done a million times before. I mean...I'm just as guilty I have a great shot of Oxbow Bend that I'm super happy with but even as I took the photo I was tripping over literally at least 30 other photogs.

In reply to:

FantasticMrFox: 2012 I bought a top of the line MacBook Pro 13' with almost maxed out hardware (i7, 8GB Ram, but no SSD etc.) for what I remember to have been between €1,500 and €1,700. The recent 2016 MacBook Pro 13' configured to maximum specifications now runs €3,279.

Have they gone insane? A price increase of 100% over just four years?! Who is supposed to be able to still afford that stuff?!

iamatrix - I used to feel like you but my 2011 15" MBP will likely be my last. You can no longer upgrade your own RAM, hardrive etc now that Apple solders everything. Apple used to make sense but what they charge now for a modest (at best) 15" MBP is INSANE....not to mention it can never be upgraded.

In reply to:

falconeyes: I am seeing the expected comments here.

I am awaiting comments from real users of Photoshop with a new MBP if they observe any increase in productivity using the touch bar.

Moreover, I wonder if Apple has any plans to sell an external keyboard or touch pad with a touch bar. After all, many pros use MBP in clamshell mode with external keyboard and monitors.

Agreed, I use my MBP in clamshell mode all the time.

In reply to:

Clint Dunn: 'Best 35mm lens available' - Really??? Maybe if you're sticking to DSLR lenses. I would put my Zeiss 35mm 1.4 ZM against this Canon.

@Dan_168 - What were you shooting it on??
@Yake - I've sold off all my Canon gear...no need for me to rent a lens I will never buy
@Juck - Sounds like pure opinion to me...and pretty sure you've never used either lens.
