Wye Photography: Isn't the iPhone X portrait mode going to make these type of lenses redundant? /s

shademaster: First they came for the film.
Then they came for the mirror.
Now they're coming for the shutter.

Karroly, My attempt at humour failed. Sorry.

My three film cameras that I still use on occasion do not have batteries. Two of them, admittedly are rather old.

Karroly, lol, if "they" do it's back to film.

marshwader: Is that to compensate for the performance loss brought on by meltdown and spectre?
Is anyone actually buying Pcs or Macs at the moment if they can hang on to their current setup until processors are released that actually address the problems rather than papering them over at our expense?

As the President of IBM once said "there is no such thing as a completely de-bugged programme".

Bobthearch: I guess there was no good news this year? Or the best photographers only cover horrific and morbid events?

No, Daft Punk, I don't have a problem, the photographer does.

You know nothing of my life so don't lecture me. The fact that you have resulted to pejorative, soft as it is, means you have lost the argument. There is NO need to insult. I am quite entitled to my opinion as are you. I respect your opinion please respect mine.

Most people in the Western world push the suffering of others out of their mind. You wouldn't want to see the immediate aftermath of, say, the Boston bomb would you? How would you feel if you were caught in an accident and whilst you lay bleeding with bits of your body here and there and some photog was taking pictures of you. Then, if you survived you find your picture all over the media. How would you feel? How would your family feel?

Rhetorical questions, no need for a response.

Shlomo Goldwasser: I love the photograph of the woman lying on the floor. The story it tells is amazing.

The woman's eyes are telling us: "my head's cracked open and losing blood and I see you only want to win world press photo of the year".

Juksu, Good point, I agree.

The Davinator, at least I am not a Neanderthal Troll and a complete Dick like yourself. Phucin Troll.

@Daft Punk, Yeah, I understand what you say. I am painfully aware of human suffering, of course, I am not aware of the vast majority of it. One thing I do know, I don't want to see gritty photos of suffering, certainly not those that have won awards or are going too. THAT I find extremely distasteful. These kinds of photos should not be celebrated in this way.

Besides, a photo is, in a way, sanitised and divorced from reality. What is missing is the smell, the unbearable sound of cries of grief or agony or the sound of people in their last moments. This is nothing to give awards to.

PhotoKhan: The more I happily and effectively use LR+CC and the more I read people cornering themselves up into giving up on such a perfect software for image processing just because it so happens to have migrated from a standalone product into a subscription model - a model that makes the software always updated, full ready to run a computer for less than the price of a coffee-a-day - the more puzzled I get about human nature.

PhotoKhan, Please PhotoKhan, no worries at all. My amygdala malfunction is autism. You weren't to know. My fault. Sorry.

I was quite enjoying our witty-repartee (until I ruined it). So, please feel free. I do like to rib and jibe and I don't take life too seriously. I am not that good at humour (so I am told - often) and I end up insulting people by accident (no, true).

I have had a look at your fab site and there some really fab photos. I think "Light drunken feast" is particularly excellent. Love that one. Will browse the rest at work tomorrow (not much on at all). Really nice to see the Lake District, your photos of Derwent Water are fab. Oh, and the mountains. I know many of them well. You need to go again. Fuels my mountain fever. I love Portugal. My in-laws have a small house near Marvao. Love the place. Great food, coffee and people.

Best wishes my TAP flying Portuguese friend.

The Davinator, Sorry, but I would not want such a unethical and immoral job. It seems some people fail to grasp the concepts of ethics and morality.

PhotoKhan, I am sure your cortex is quite resilient and quite able to cope with a degree of polemic diatribe. If not, 'man-up". Sorry, but my amygdala has a congenital malfunction. I do live in a cul-de-sac and do enjoy it, thank you. I hope you enjoy contributing to the wealth of Adobe shareholders.

There is money to be made and fame awaits for photos of Human suffering. I can not tell how repulse I am about the so-called ethics of this.

I'm with you Shlomo, If ever I was caught in such terrible circumstances I would want to help people first and foremost. Not take bloody photos.

ovengloves: In photo 4 you name the b@st@rd that killed 5 people but not the victims?

Plus all the photographer could do is take a photo rather than help comfort her.

Nice!

"Photographers are there to document" That's phuced up. Help people FIRST, take photos after.

snowsurferDS: I need to thank Adobe for discontinuing LR standalone, they helped me discover Capture One and I am immensely grateful. So happy to move away from their money grabbing scheme, and to a better software, at that (for me).

At least you can make a one-off purchase that is the equivalent of three years' Adobe subscription. Considering there hasn't been a really major or ground breaking must-have feature for some years there is no real need to upgrade for some time either.

At least C1 is better (my opine) and faster. If you are going to stay with the camera you have for some time then, there isn't much point in having always-current software.

Who wants PS when you can get Affinity for a fraction of the cost. The adobe bubble is nearing burst.

@PhotoKhan, if you can't work that out then I suggest you need to evolve your cerebral cortex.

Always-on-always-updated means also you need to have hardware to successfully run it.

I never said that the model was "critically non-affordable". Did I?
