Some awesome photos in this article!
My personal fave is the one on the cover of this post - The worker -supervisor one.

We at Bored Panda love to see history come alive, which is why we think you'll also like this series of colorized photos by Russian Flickr user klimbims. Russia's history reads likes a novel--which may be why it has been the subject of so many novels--and these colorized photos bring that history into the modern age.

I only use polarizers for digatal but not that much especially since on wide angle shots they do more harm than good. bw film i used yellow and sometimes red filters, but that was a long time ago.

Nice! The title is a bit misleading but it is a nice video.
Here's a fascinating 6-minute video that explores how Ansel Adams went from being a rather mediocre amateur photographer and into the legend we now know an

Okay... I shoot RAW, but this tool is by far one of the most essential photographic tools I found in the past few years! This saved my SSD 20% of its space and replaced the JPEGs (which were in the 10's of thousands) on my drive as good as or better than the ones on the filesystem. I like keep my entire collection of images on my Mac. Never know when I might want to go back to anything. I do a 3 step 'Library of Congress" backup scheme, so loosing images is not a concern. But, saving space on my SSD vs. this collection is of a large consequence; it eats my drive space.

This app recursed my entire Pictures folder (on the Mac), finding every JPEG, using their algorithm to figure the best compression vs. quality, and in most ever case created a much smaller file, which you can pixel-peep for hours, and if anything -- on a blind-test, of which I ran a few, I found that the low file size image was picked 100% of the time (the sample pool was three -- so okay, small, but they magnified, & spent some time before coming to a conclusion) -- you won't be able to figure out which file is which. So, try it if you don't believe me; you'll save processing power and file size if you work with JPEGs or have collections from RAW images as your resulting format -- regardless of the RAW batch outputs. At some point, your final RAW is almost always converted into a JPEG at some point.

So, here it is... JPEGmini Pro. An amazing piece of software and much needed in this digital image (collection) world. Read up about it and try it out on a folder few of JPEGs yourself and compare each. I think you'll be quite happy. I was!

While photography, by rule, is most always a give to get process, I didn't believe this could hold the claim. But, after days of studying this and its results, I'm finding it difficult to find this to be the case. I'd love some more trials from some of you... 'Cuz I value the think tank that is the Lightbox.

Interesting read on a classic master photographer and his still life photography. http://bit.ly/214VtuT

On the recommendation of my tutor I acquired a copy of Irving Penn's book Still Life *(1). Penn supervised the collation of this book and, as such, it is a revealing representation of his work. Pen...

Thanks for the heads up, unfortunately the show is not even coming remotely close. I live north of Toronto and would've been more then willing to make a day trip to Buffalo, Rochester, or a long trip to Albany.

Today UCLA gave me the best early Valentine’s birthday present possible: I have qualified at the ripe age of 73 (on V-Day) to have a single left lung transplant. Jackie and I are floating on a high; we now know we grow a lot older together traipsing around the World.

Spiders are neat. Would like an exoskeleton like that myself. Talk about access to photo ops. Sheesh.

Any idea on where the focus was? What shutter speed?
 
Stunning image of aviation workers supporting the war effort in 1941. Another Ebbets photo promoting the war effort instead of high scary building buildings.

Hi +Ann Marie M. , here's what I'm seeing at the max enlargement from your picture as submitted - this is what caused me comment on the appearance of the beach material; right near the in-focus shells, I did not expect this appearance. But then, I wasn't there seeing this in real life, either... Is this close to what you actually saw?

Was thinking about UFO's and why it is important to examine images closely. The most valuable photo in the whole world is an image of my mom that she sent me. It's in my wallet and probably didn't cost $2.00. Putting this "big" art together as a photo will require very close examination for UFO's and has to be set up just right for the client. Not to mention the cost and effort for me to put it together. The client has worked very hard to have a wall worthy of an image this size. And, if a client chooses to "afford" such an image, UFO's do come into play. There are so many important factors. Yet the photo of my mum is worth more than anything this frame could display. This is what I am learning in this light box community.

Yup, photographs are certainly included in a modern (e.g the last 100 years or so) definition of art!

And that's SOME frame in that picture!

GOOGLE'S $150 NIK COLLECTION DESKTOP PHOTO EDITING SOFTWARE BECAME 100% FREE!

You may remember that Google acquired Nik Software and its popular Snapseed photo editing app back in September 2012. Although Google killed off Snapseed for Desktop in March 2013, it was still big news when Google started selling the entire Nik suite (originally valued at around $500) for the “low price” of $150 later that month.

Now it’s free.

+Dragomir Madzharov somewhat tricky to state...  some of these MIGHT be doable with a curtain shutter, long exposure, and a double flash, combined with a little bit of camera motion; on balance, probably a little easier in post-processing...  still, great pix! :-)
