There is a new kid in town (or soon will be) when it comes to RAW photo editing.  On1 Photo RAW will soon be the "The future of RAW Photo Editing"...  at least that is what they are telling us.  It remains to be seen, but considering the quality of the rest of their product line I think there is a [click link to read more...]

Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4 Macro Lens Review

It's a changing world, and soon it will become a homogeneous world. I don't much care for that idea, so I'm trying to see different cultures and unspoiled lands while they still exist. Along the way I want to help others to see the magic of the world around them through the lens of a camera.
