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 Indonesian floods, La Tomatina, Wildlife Photographer of the Year, shooting early, Lens Correction and Transform and a thank you.

  • Dita Alangkara and Victoria Milko talked to and photographed 10 families affected by the Indonesian Floods. "Many villagers have fled the area, becoming climate migrants seeking new lives in places that are drier and higher above sea level," they write. "But others haven't left their flooded homes -- some by choice, but many because they lack the money to move."
  • Alan Taylor celebrates The Return of La Tomatina with 18 photos of the first return of the 75-year event since the pandemic. "About 130 tons of overripe tomatoes were brought by seven trucks, then dumped and thrown among the crowd," he writes.
  • The Natural History Museum has posted the winners of its Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest.
  • In Oil the Tin Man, Mike Johnston considers the advice to take your first photos of the day early, just to keep your "eye in practice," as Josef Koudelka put it.
  • Jason Row explains why you need Lightroom Lens Correction and Transform. We do use both regularly for our slide shows. And you'll find them in Photoshop's Camera Raw as well.
  • Thom Hogan's Thank You is a gracious nod to the readers who volunteer corrections. As a one-man band, too, we join him in expressing that gratitude to our readers. Having no proofreader but ourselves is a handicap and we are blessed whenever a reader takes the time to point out what our blind eye missed.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
