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 a blue wave as Paradise burns, Singapore over time, 'The Wall' documentary, the Nikon 180-400mm f4E FL VR lens, Lightroom Profiles, six questions to ask at photo exhibits and some best practices to avoid lawsuits.

  • Alan Taylor presents 28 Blue-Wave Photos. "The images below capture some spectacular rides and wipeouts, as people try their hardest to navigate these massive waves and avoid washing out," he writes. Or, if you're not a blue-waver, he presents 24 photos of Paradise Burning. Although, it occurs to us, you might see it both ways.
  • In Cityscape Singapore, Ming Thein attempts "a set 'representative' of the personality of the place -- as far as that's possible with a dynamic entity like a living city (especially in the case of somewhere that rapidly develops such as Singapore or Tokyo), as well as to see how my own personal feelings and impressions have changed over time." You can do that with a camera.
  • Holy Stuart Hughes covers 'The Wall' Documentary based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning work by the Arizona Republic and the USA Today Network. The feature-length documentary was made from footage gathered for the project's short videos and is now screening around the country.
  • Thom Hogan reviews the Nikon 180-400mm f4E FL VR Lens. "Nikon's done an impressive job updating the old 200-400mm f4," he writes. "In almost every respect we've gotten a far better lens." The problem is the $12,400 price tag.
  • In Demystifying Lightroom Profiles -- In-Depth Guide, Victor Elizarov explains what profiles are and how they work and even provides a free Introductory Profile Set (see the big orange button at the end of the article).
  • Frank Gallagher poses Six Questions to Ask at Photo Exhibits to Improve Your Photography. The goal is "to come home from an art display with some new knowledge, some techniques to try and a better understanding of how other artists tell stories with their art," he writes.
  • In What They Know and How They Know It, Greenberg and Reznicki disclose "what companies, ad agencies and media outlets are being taught as the best practices to avoid lawsuits" regarding infringement. Just 11 points.

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