It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. ~Robert Louis Stevenson I must say that around the neighborhood and points further still, this is my favorite tree, particularly in winter. Each time that I walk past it, it seems that I must take its picture, record its personality…

Well, it’s the end of the year and, of course, the lists are starting to roll out. So, here is a photography related list. The 45 Most Powerful Photos of 2011. I’m aware that these 10 X lists are just the opinion of the photos and if you ask a 100 different groups or different people, you’ll probably have a whole different group of photos with little in common. I approached the photos from this point of view: I’d go…

In a previous post, Ken made a comment about the photo that accompanied the post. He said: I’ve also found reading good photography related blogs (such as this) to be just as interesting. I really like this shot, too. Perfect example of the rule of thirds. ~Ken Bello Having thought nothing of it when I composed the photo nor when I posted it, I had to look at it and remark to myself: He’s absolutely right!

When it gets down to what appeals, then, beauty…

In my previous post, I talked about giving the iPad a second chance to serve for photo processing. In one the comments, Tom Dillis mentioned his aversion to processing while on vacation: When I’m traveling I want to enjoy the experience of travel, and sitting in a hotel room or cruise ship cabin processing photos is not my idea of fun. Heck, I don’t even like doing that at home! With memory cards so cheap these days I’ve got enough…

A few months ago I tried my hand at processing files with the iPad. In a nutshell, I found that it was very limited in the file sizes that it could accommodate. However, I did discover that it could accommodate, quite comfortably, those files from my Canon S90, either raw or JPEG. If you read the previous post, I mentioned that I could not process M9 files on the iPad because they were too big, no matter which mode I…
