AllanW: .... and Lightroom will still run slow on this beast! ;)

[chuckle] that was my first thoughts re this workstation as well.

That would have been me 10-20 years ago, but not today. I don't care if that makes me wiser or more a wuss than I was then, because I simply don't bounce like I used to any more.

braisim: The best thing about the video for me is the way the guy nonchalantly walks away from the scene after being blasted by the wave. Class.

What was the best thing, again?

composed: Great tool for some, I am sure.

Personally I prefer serendipity.

I hear that, but then again a little loose planning can mean all the difference for serendipity. It helps me, anyway, such as when I'd like to get a nice colorful sunset but the forecast calls for overcast downpours, and like that.

On article Capturing the same sunset, 2 years apart (126 comments in total)

Whenever I return to a location with intentions of doing it "one better", I'm reminded of the riddle, "Never take the same photo twice." (There was a time I used to try [chuckle])

Pieces of art that have the potential to create art? Cool.

I come to news comments for the entertainment in negativity - very pleased to be disappointed today.

I used to want to share locations of lovely places I've visited. 15 years later and I return to many of these locations to find them overwhelmed with people and the garbage that has been left behind. The worst are edges of bodies of water where old bait containers, fishing line, and worse are to be found littered about.

At this point I limit my sharing of locations to specific individuals rather than invite the world (mainly, where it relates to rural locations).

On article Ten ways to shake 'photographer's block' for good (90 comments in total)

When I would get into a rut I would go out with only the worst lens I have (or the least respected), and challenge myself to make something with it. The act would be akin to getting a new lens or camera, where I'd be more focused initially on how the gear performs than content. At those times I'll shoot thing I normally wouldn't consider when not in 'test' mode. And I'd often surprise myself with what I did come back with. The act would refresh my perspective and bring back the mojo that had faltered.

cgarrard: Why would you default process all of your files? :)

But mainly, all of those are short and to the point, rather efficient resources for all levels of LR experience..

One might want it for a particular session/series, or use a limited default as a starting point, I suppose.

As a long time LR user I found some of the video tips enlightening/enabling. Thumbs up.

And I even enjoyed being "gotcha'd" with the Ansel Adams video. [g]

In reply to:

(unknown member): Speaking as an amateur astronomer who dislikes "light pollution" if we are on such an energy-saving kick, WHY do cities continue to allow incredibly wasteful uses of light in blazing signage, uncontrolled street-lighting and even car headlights that verge on blinding these days? Check out the heart of Toronto:

Some properties don't comply, some have cogeneration or have gone LED. Energy reduction mandates are about energy use and utility expenses. No one responsible for that cares about light pollution.

Just like no one responsible for street signage cares how ugly their arrangements are, nor how their signage clutters the view of architecture.

Cities do it in part for safety, in part to exhibit the architecture.

There was a push to conserve energy for building lighting before commercial LED lighting became affordable.

On article The Sony a9 is a 24MP sports-shooting powerhouse (1909 comments in total)

Thankfully it's much more than I require. But it's everything I could ask for.

But then again. . . it had better be all Sony says it be.

The Canon 1D, IMO, was significant in the transition of DSLRs to digital. The next significant evolution from there has just occurred.

Bob Tullis: In a future interview can you ask about what they're doing to alleviate the frustration that many of us customers have with Playmemories apps?

I felt I was insane to try yet again, but. . . EUREKA! Finally, success!

(IOW, never mind [g]).

I initially didn't care for in-camera apps, but one or two in time I found appealing. I've tried many ways, many times, but can't get the apps to install. I'm not the only one.

Artak Hambarian: Honestly, last week, under the rain, I have been thinking why there is no such an umbrella that can be attached to the camera backback, freeing my hands - anyway I carry the backback...? So I am not the only one with great innovative ideas ;-).

Here you go, Swing-Handsfree Umbrella:

On article Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.10 and ACR 9.10 now available (65 comments in total)

It looks like I"m all up to date, but whenever I load a RAW from LR to PS I get a message saying "This version of LR may require the PS Camera RAW plug-in version 9.10 for full compatibility. Please update the Camera RAW plug-in using the update tool available in the PS help menu."
Dialog Options: -Don't Show Again, - Cancel, - Render using LR, - Open Anyway

Open Anyway works well enough, I suppose it's just coding / recognition error.
