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. This time we look at the Blue Mosque, Hogan's comparitor, Matthew Finn and 10 Photoshop contenders.

  • Ming Thein's An Hour at the Blue Mosque actually spans several hours, being a "cumulative hour in total shooting it." So you get exterior and interior daylight shots plus a lovely night shot of the magnificent structure as well.
  • If you're on the fence over two cameras, The Year End Comparitor by Thom Hogan will help you lean one way or the other. He evaluates eight choices, one of them generic, and tosses in a little buying advice, too. We found it much more satisfying than those feature comparison tables that weigh everything the same.
  • Camilla Parker interviews Matthew Finn in My Mum Was My Muse -- 'She Was the Star of Every Photo', who is exhibiting 30 years of photos of his mother. "The pictures are an extraordinary record of a bond between mother and son," Parker writes.
  • In Testing 10 Photoshop Contenders, Alan Dyer does the dirty work of actually evaluating the alternatives after obsserving "only four of these programs can truly serve as a layer-based editing program replacing Photoshop" while the rest take on Lightroom.

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