Cooter return? Somehow, I don't think so, but fervently hope I'm wrong again on this one. Of course, he could always just write, but the photographs were a delight in themselves, and I will miss them on LuLa, but his website is always there, so not everything is lost.

You have to look at it from the perspective of a top pro: comments on a worldwide forum that cast doubts on your work can do no good, and are possibly quite dangerous too, if they fall into certain hands. For us retired guys and probably for most amateurs, it simply has no impact beyond ruffled feathers, which can smooth down in time.

In the instances my own 'departures' I felt them coming over periods of time; there was nothing written about my images that pissed me off (I simply think folks who don't like 'em just don't get 'em, which covers all my bases), it was just the sense that I was often communicating with a bunch of pretty dumb minds, and that there wasn't much point in my doing so.

With time, I realised that by leaving I was also distancing from my life people with whom communication is a pleasure, so back I came until the next time. Yes, one did communicate off-line, but there is also benefit and pleasure in a more public form of communication and interaction.

But having said that, it's from the point of view of someone with nothing to lose. I'd have hated to feel my clients might pick up on some spiteful shit written without much thought... Retirement brings some benefit, if not many!

I've started to think about a way to sooth children seeing this on the news by showing them a globe of the Earth pointing to where each shooting is happening and how far away it is in comparison to the entire planet so they don't think it's going to happen to them. Then I'ld show them Google maps satellite view of the exact location and zoom out just to further establish a perspective.

These shootings are a tragedy for sure and the lives not to be made small, but living in fear can ruin more lives from a global sense.

+1

Cheers,

Be very leary of early reviews. Many of these so called reviewers are on the Fuji payroll one way or another. I'd wait until the camera is out so the normal Joe can give it a go.

Many of the reviews are "Fuji X Photographers".  They get early review cameras but are NOT compensated by Fuji.  The deal with Fuji is that they share their honest opinions and provide feedback with the company.  At a certain point after announcement Fuji lifts the NDA so they are free to share their opinions.

Which photographers reviewing the X-T2 have you found to be on the Fuji payroll?

One of the varieties of pitcher plants (Serracenia) growing in my bog garden. Sort of a family portrait. ;)

Thank you for viewing. C&C welcomed.

And exactly what the hell is the distinction?

Hi Russ,

How about motive ?

Quote
You're just as dead in either case and just as defenseless without a weapon.

Obviously, but it makes a big difference in case one wants to find a way of preventing the next shooting. Identifying the root cause, may allow to solve it better/faster.

Maybe that's the big difference between some of our cultures. Some want to prevent new tragedies from happening, and others just pile up more guns which increases the likelihood of more tragedies happening. Pro-active versus Reactive. It would be fully consistent with what I was taught during a multi-day Cross Cultural Skill training. And the cultural differences within Europe are also huge.

Cheers,
Bart

Nope.
The check is using colorimetry to measure (in my case) a mere 700 different patches printed in Photoshop CS6 (the control) and whatever version is being tested. A max dE of 15 isn't correct.

Geez! That's not reassuring. Are you being compensated for the ink and paper by Adobe?

Andrew, did the fix (if you're allowed to divulge) have anything to do with the "space bar" tip given to a poster here by an Adobe call center tech support?

It is fixed (I can state I've seen the fix) and, it took a fraction of the time to fix this than it took Adobe to realize it's their bug. Let's not forget the time to put up a web site that blames another company when that company wasn't at fault. The so called fix on that web page is bogus so doesn't appear they ever tested it. And then there is Adobe's failure to actually test two products for printing prior to release to detect these bugs. Sloppy, very sloppy despite being told prior to each issue, what not to do and then doing so anyway. Zero sympathy from this often called Adobe Fan Boy.

Or from what you now know does it point to a way to check for a behavior after an update to LR or Photoshop that indicates an Adobe bug so users don't have sort it out in similar long threads in the future?

What and where was the problem that was so easy to fix but was overlooked?
