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 Mosul, landscape focal lengths, critical camera features, Instagram's Archive feature and a KelbyOne deal.

  • In Mosul in Ruins, Alan Taylor presents 26 photos of the war-torn city from the past week. "Much the same as other cities in the region once overrun by ISIS, then retaken by government forces, the damage to Mosul and its infrastructure is severe," he writes.
  • Jim Kasson ponders The Right Focal Length for Landscapes. "But I contended then and repeat now," he says, "that you can use just about any focal length for landscapes, not just short ones." And he proves it with a set of beautiful images.
  • In Discussion Points: Critical Features, Ming Thein lists his nine essential features before inviting readers to fill it out.
  • Derrick Story finds Instagram's Archive Feature Worth Using -- but it might be hard to find the feature itself. He explains where it is and how to use it.
  • Scott Kelby is offering a 72-Hour Sale on a KelbyOne Annual Membership. It's $25 off on unlimited access to all the courses and membership benefits. Grand total: $174.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
