In the past I have drizzled praise all over Pixar, specifically the fantasy-realist films that Brad Bird has made with them. There are many reasons to heap laurels on the Disney-owned animation studio: its innovation in the field of computer animation before such a thing even existed, its creative use of all available tools at any given point in their history, its ability to captivate the minds and pocket books of children and adults alike. “Wallâ€¢E”, however, is something different, something more than any of us thought these imagineers were capable of.
Ahhh, internet fame has come my way at last. I made it into this week’s Gizmodo Photoshop Contest Hall of Champions. I get nothing for my efforts, but it was fun anyway. Though I didn’t snag one of the top three titles, I did manage to make it into the post’s main graphic TWICE!

I’m still taking pictures in case anyone out there was wondering. My awesome office window view provided another great cityscape, this time with an iPhone. I opted, as I often do, to leave the camera gear at home today and lug the laptop in so I could catch up on website business.

A clean chip and a nice lens will let you make some really nice crops, and this one is no exception. Read on…
