On article Google will no longer develop Nik Collection (390 comments in total)

I do use Nik Viveza and Silver Efex Pro. I like them both very much. And I use HDR Efex as well. They are very useful tools.

I liked it and I am 74 years old. Wild. Wondering how they did it.

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (766 comments in total)

My first camera was a Kodak box camera. You took photos and mailed it in. They sent back your pictures and another cardboard box camera filled with film. My first "Real" camera was a Kodak Retina that my father gave me. I loved that one. I was 14 years old.

On article World Press Photo announces 2013 contest winners (298 comments in total)
In reply to:

John Koch: Interesting pictures, without a doubt: war, corpses, fatal jumps, chronic disability, and depths of the Antarctic. Angst, desolation, mayhem.

Then think of the photojornalists who cover street repairs, police retirement banquets, independence day parades, youth basketball tournaments, or warehouse fires. Then there are the folks who photograph real estate, weddings, products, and graduates. All happy stuff.

Well, I guess we idealize angst, desolation mayhem.

I noticed the same thing recently in a listing of film student winners. All negative themes. I think it is a sign of the times. We are in a period of heightened negativity, most of it aimed at manipulation. I for one am tired of it.

On photo Red and White in the What Is This? challenge (16 comments in total)

It is sunlight refracted through a clear glass with a red plastic water bottle behind adding the red color. The glass was sitting on the kitchen counter and the sun was streaming in from the kitchen window hitting the glass and the red plastic water bottle. Some of the patterns are from the lines in the plastic of the bottle. The rest are from the shape of the glass. They are refracted on the white kitchen counter.
