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 some lovely iPhone photos, UV filters, Raw Power and the color of snow.

  • Kate Wesson presents The 100 Best iPhone Photos Of 2016 from the iPhone Photography School's weekly contest.
  • In Front Element Lens Protection Revisited, Roger Cicala revisits some old advice. "When I wrote most of those articles I talked about above, front elements cost from $70 to $200, and good filters cost $70 to $140," he notes. "Today good UV filters still cost from $70 to $140, even in 82mm size. But the cost of replacing front elements has skyrocketed."
  • Derrick Story is impressed with the $10 Raw Power app for Apple Photos. It lets him "customize the decoding of my Raw files."
  • In Is Snow Really White?, Moose Peterson says only when "there are blue skies and bright sun." Remove the sun and it turns blue.

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