Enhancing the enjoyment of taking pictures with news that matters, features that entertain and images that delight. Published frequently.

In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at the 74th Pictures of the Year International competition, hardware, a free Davis webinar and an Olympus trade-in offer.
- In Winners of Pictures of the Year International, James Estrin presents 21 images "that largely explores concepts of masculinity." Marcus Yam of the Los Angeles Time as Newspaper Photographer of the Year and the New York Times itself won the Angus McDougall Overall Excellence in Editing Award and 32 other awards and citations.
- In Why the Right Hardware Is Liberating, Ming Thein points out the hardest thing to do as a photographer these days. "It's avoiding the trap of continually chasing unicorns in the hope that the next thing may be the one."
- The Artistic Image: From Start to Finish, a free webinar by Harold Davis and sponsored by Topaz Labs, will be held tomorrow at 2 p.m. Pacific. "I'll take a handful of images (as many as we have time for and still have some time for Q&A) and process these images in real time from Raw file(s) to finished art," he writes. Preregistration required.
- Olympus will take $200 off the Pen-F or OM-D MK II with any camera trade-in or $200 off the M.Zuiko 12-100mm, 25mm f1.2 or 300mmf4.0 with any lens trade-in. Adorama and B&H are both participating in the program.
More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
