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 landscapes, the week in review, William Christenberry, gardens, Nan Goldin, more on Enhance Details, a free Topaz webinar, free images and free ringtones.

  • The Daily Mail showcases The Winners of the International Landscape Photographer of the Year from 3,000 entries. Adam Gibbs won Photographer of the Year while Paul Marcellini won Photograph of the Year. Both images are in the selection of quite striking photos.
  • The Guardian's Jim Powell presents Our Pick of Images From Around the World Over the Past Seven Days. Twenty of them.
  • In Once It Comes Time, Michael Adno presents a hefty set of William Christenberry's Alabama photographs. "Whenever someone asks why I always photograph in Alabama," Christenberry once said, "I have to answer that, yes, I know there are other places, but Alabama is where my heart is."
  • The winners of the Interational Garden Photography Contest include Jill Weldham's cyanotype of Allium recalling the pioneering work of Anna Atkins, which won Weldham Photographer of the Year. With nine categories, three photo projects, five special awards, a youth category and six portfolios to review, there goes your weekend.
  • In Nan Goldin Leads a Protest at the Guggenheim Against the Sackler Family, Masha Gessen reports on the sit-in protesting the Sackler's merchandising of OxyContin, to which the photographer herself was addicted. Goldin, who is "a Guggenheim type of celebrity," is represented in the museum's collection.
  • In ACR 11.2 Enhance Details -- Effect on Sharpness, Jim Kasson uses a frequency-domain analysis to show the new feature does not sharpen images.
  • There will be a Free Topaz Webinar With Harold Davis on Feb. 19. "Davis will use some of his more popular recent images to demonstrate Topaz Studio, Topaz Adjust, Topaz Glow and Topaz Simplify." Registration required for the 45-minute presentation followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
  • Charles Purdy lists sources of Free Images From Museums, Libraries, and More! "The United States National Archives includes historical photos, as well as photos documenting everyday life in the country, throughout the 20th century," he writes.
  • The Interactivist is offering Free Ringtones From iRingPro. It's Joel Hladecek's way of honoring the memory of iRingPro co-founder Jeff Essex.

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