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. This time we look at China's Qiandongnan prefecture, astronomy photography, flight attendants, Adobe Camera Raw videos, the 2018 iPhone Photography Awards and memory card routines.

  • Alan Taylor presents A Photo Trip to China's Qiandongnan Prefecture in 24 photos. "The mountainous landscape is lined with terraced farm fields, the valleys dotted with villages made up of traditional wooden structures and the local festivals burst with color," he writes.
  • The Guardian has published the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2018 Shortlist in photos.
  • Getty Images Foto takes a look at Flight Attendants: A Trip Through Time. "Over the years, flight attendants have been required to be everything from waitresses to firefighters and back in the day they had to endure weigh-ins, outrageous rules governing their personal lives and some seriously questionable fashion." Now it's just the passengers who are put upon.
  • Julieanne Kost shares her free Adobe Camera Raw Videos all in once place. Topics include Profiles, the Guided Upright tool, Saving Presets, Soft Proofign, the Radial Filter and more.
  • The iPhone Photography Awards has announced the Winners of the 2018 iPhone Photography Awards. The Grand Prize Winner Photographer of the Year Award goes to Jashim Salam of Bangladesh. First, Second and Third Place Photographers of the Year Awards go to Alexandre Weber of Switzerland, Huapeng Zhao of China and Zarni Myo Win of Myanmar.
  • In When Is It OK to Erase Your Memory Cards?, Scott Kelby describes his approach in five steps. We'd just add you can identify yourself safely with your driver's license (rather than a phone number) on your card.
