These images are stunning; I obviously had no idea of how many talented photographers were here, until viewing these results. Thanks, editors!

RuthC: This is a beautiful picture, Lightpath48, and it deserves second place in this week's challenge. The steam fog rising from the cold water of the lake adds an ethereal touch, while the light from the rising sun lifts the image far beyond a simple landscape. Definitely one to hang on the wall!
RuthC :-)

Thank you, RuthC! I felt extremely fortunate to be standing at that spot and time, with the young person, gulls, fog and sun all playing it out in a very special way. I think these moments have only come a handful of times in memory with camera in hand.

André BARELIER: Wow, congratulations! VERY nice picture.
Why don't you post this kind of picture on the Coolpix forum?

Thanks, Andre. It seems the Coolpix forum is lightly visited, and many posts are about the latest Coolpix camera, the P900. I posted a few images there in past months, but no responses appeared so I kind of gave up. I'm glad you liked this one! I'm back with this camera only, as it served me so well. Everything else has been sold.

Artifacts probably are from the compressed upload.

Spots are bugs and distant seagulls, not a dirty sensor.

Viewing this at 100% reveals over-aggressive noise reduction using DXO's "Prime" NR option. Original had quite a bit more fine detail.

I noticed the Samsung NX500 front and center in the compact ILC cameras photo. It seems ironic, how fast Samsung has ditched further development of standalone cameras, just as reviewers were agreeing on the bang for buck value of the NX series. I was one step short of pushing the BUY button on an NX300 kit, recently. Am wondering how long Samsung will provide support.

The colors in the ice are from an assortment of ground minerals that leeched through.

Works for me! Just installed and ran corrections on some low light recital photos from my old G10. Very nice corrections and effects transpired. Notice the sequins on the child's top. The original CR2 raw file and DXO corrected file are now posted in my gallery. Granted, the original didn't give DXO an excellent starting point to begin with, as shutter speed was slow. But I think the improvements are quite evident. I'll be working more with this extension, which I hope to be only the first of more to come. The bare bones Photos app has been quite dumbed down from my Aperture 3.

In reply to:

DStudio: In the PetaPixel article Reuters cites the extra time photographers take on editing RAW images. And they're correct - it is often a waste of time when news-gathering - even when the photographer has an efficient RAW workflow.

However, that's the *photographer's* problem to solve, not theirs. I guess their liberal mindset (the bad side of it) is showing through here. They want to solve someone else's problems. And they will do so by mandating "the correct solution" for them.

It's good for Reuters to manage their workflows. But it's dubious to dictate the freelance photographer's workflow for him. I don't mind them specifying the types of edits allowed, but it's dubious when they get their fingers into the photographer's pie, dictating the original image format.

What's "liberal" got to do with it, DStudio?
