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 photos of the season, the cloud's silver lining, the Sony 24-70mm f2.8 prime lens, Adobe MAX presentations and the Canon EF-M 22mm.

  • Alan Taylor returns with the second part of Fall Is in the Air. This set "features photographs from Switzerland, Belarus, Nepal, Russia, France, England, Kazakhstan, China and across the United States."
  • In The Cloud's Silver Lining, Derrick Story considers the role of cloud computing (something Capture One Pro does not do but Apple Photos does, he points out). "The dark side of cloud computing is often the fees and subscriptions that we have to maintain. And the silver lining can be when the cloud saves all of our work that would otherwise be lost," he says in this week's podcast. And he has a silver-lining story to share, too.
  • Thom Hogan reviews the Sony 24-70mm f2.8 GM Lens. "Sony got this one just about right," he writes.
  • In Accelerating Your Creativity -- Photography, Maria Yap and Bryan O'Neil Hughes give "a glimpse into the future of photography at Adobe with the all new Lightroom CC, which fulfills the demands of today's photographers and enthusiasts for a more accessible, cloud-based photography service for editing organizing, storing and sharing their photos from wherever they are." In a 20-minute nutshell. More Adobe MAX keynotes have been published online, too.
  • Robin Wong reviews the Canon EF-M 22mm f2 pancake lens for the M6 mirrorless system. That's a 35mm equivalent with the M6's 1.6x crop factor. He missed having image stabilization, though, with blurry shots at 1/50 second.

We're running the public service notice below to remind Americans they can sign up for the American Health Care from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15 to be insured in 2018.

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