In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at the World Press Photo Contest winners, Neal Kumar, Lightroom's Targeted Adjustment tool and photo restoration.

  • In The World's Best News Photos, James Estrin shows off 27 winners of the World Press Photo Contest. Francis Kohn, jury chairman and photo director at Agence France-Presse, described Australian Warren Richardson's Photo of the Year as subtle, with an "overall simplicity of just the moonlight, the barbed wire, the man and the baby." And very soft focus, too. BTW, Alan Taylor published 40 of the winners.
  • Kate Wesson interviews Chicago iPhonographer Neal Kumar. He talks about his love of love exposures, using the grid to center compositions, low light photography and, of course, his favorite apps. And the photos aren't bad either.
  • In his fourth Lightroom Coffee Break video, Adobe's Benjamin Warde explains how to use the Targeted Adjustment tool:
  • Terry White takes on photo restoration after scanning some old prints. "Unlike a lot of things in Photoshop, there is no simple click or filter that will magically fix all the things wrong with a damaged/old photo," he warns. And he's not kidding. The video runs almost two hours.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
