The beds can be connected together, and include a pullout mattress, as does the couch.   Dine al-fresco in the courtyard... ...or in your room...  ...or join us for a hearty Israeli breakfast to start your day. Your hosts, Dave and Miri Bender, welcome you....

Image: Jerusalem, Old and New cities.
Device: Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Photo app: A Better Camera
Editing app: Photo Mate

Photo Mate is a new, and complex and pretty clunky photo editing program - but has a lot of significant desktop features not usually seen on smartphone apps, like RAW editing and saving in. TIFF and other non-.JPG formats. Personally, I'm still working on the learning curve. This effect, which was an unintended result of overusing "clarity," and "vibrance" - effects usually only available on Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop - actually, looked interesting in a sort of graphic pen style. The result sort of falls between an illustration and a photograph. My usual go - to app is SnapSpeed - especially with its latest quality and GUI improvements, but I wanted to give other approaches a try. I'll edit a few others for comparison, and will post here again, so check back...

Your photographic thoughts and comparisons are welcome.

Accessories  - 
 
Greetings all: seriously weighing investing in the QX1, to use with my Galaxy Note 3 (or whatever's coming along next...) but have a question: I currently have a D300 and a number of Nikon, Tokina and other assorted (50mm, 11-14, Tele, macro) lenses I'd like to use with the Sony device - what adapter(s) will I need? Or is it best instead to take a deep breath and invest in new glass? Love your shots here, btw... Thx in advance. Www.davidbrianbender.com.

Many E mount adapters. Depending on your glass you may need one with aperture control.
