I'm coming to suck your blood!

And now for something completely different. Maybe this doesn't count as photography since I took this image with electrons instead of photons. Nonetheless I found it pleasing and so I now post it here to share. It's a dog tick (aka woods tick), one of many I've found this year in the forest behind my house this spring. Or, rather, one of many that have found me and the dogs. I removed the scale bar (I found it distracting) but to give you an idea, its legs are around 0.2mm thick.

Any cropping suggestions?

Photoshop CS4 on the horizon..?

Rumour mill is rife with talk of a new version of Photoshop coming sometime soon-ish. Codename "Stonehenge".

Not much detail - that I could find - about what's new in it at this stage.

Anyone heard anything?


Do sensors now out-resolve lenses?

Interesting article from Luminous Landscape, especially as we move into a time when 10-12+ MP sensors are becoming common-place.

Some shots of the trophy I won for "Digital Pictorial Image of the Year" at CCC earlier this season.

This little beauty goes back to 1935, and is quite a handsome conversation starter as it sits on the living room mantlepiece. It'll eventually be consigned to the upstairs office, but for now here it is in all it's glory.

Interesting article from our friends at The Luminous Landscape here

(I say "friends" - they actually don't know who we are, but you know what I mean).
