Just Reflections by the Canon 24-105mm IS STM Lens
Sometimes, I find images comprised of only reflections more interesting than images containing only the subjects being reflected. To capture such an image requires a reflective surface and something to be reflected in it.
 
Most locations share a similar nearby reflection source: water. When water is the reflective surface and there is at least a small amount of motion on the water surface, no two photos will be the same. You can capture 20 images from a tripod-mounted camera and still have no duplicates. Such images can sometimes work together for a low-effort collection.
 
Water in motion is ... in motion. To stop motion requires an adequately short shutter speed and to achieve stopped motion in this frame, I opted for ISO 400 (vs. the least-noisy ISO 100 option). The final image has very little noticeable noise and the small waves are not showing blur.
 
For this image, I found a brightly colored boat as the reflective subject and adjusted my position until I had what I felt was ideal framing. I especially like how the top and bottom borders of the frame are relatively uninterrupted by lines in this composition.
 
Keep in mind that reflection images often benefit from increased contrast and saturation in post processing.

Photoshop Touch App Icon
Yesterday we posted a video where Adobe's Bryan O'Neil Hughes was showing off what's in development for mobile platforms, mainly the handling of large resolution files, the healing brush and liquify features. However, I failed to notice the accompanying blog post at the time.
 
In article, Hughes announces the end of Photoshop Touch:
"Sometimes building for the future means we need to make hard choices and today I am also announcing that we are discontinuing Photoshop Touch. For those of you who have been using Photoshop Touch, thank you and please continue creating amazing work with it; while it will no longer be available in stores as of May 28th and we won’t ship further updates, it will remain completely functional on your devices for the foreseeable future. For further information on how this change could impact your workflow, please visit here.
 
Photoshop Touch was available across platforms and so I’d like to leave all of you on Android with some good news – we’re actively developing new mobile applications for Android and will share those with you very soon."
For what it's worth, I have Photoshop Touch on my Samsung Galaxy S3 and I've only used it a handful of times. While decently capable as an editing app, it wasn't quite as intuitive as I thought it should be.
 
Maybe Adobe thought so as well?
 
For whatever reasons, the app will be removed from app stores on May 28. If you'd like to grab a copy of the app before it's gone, now's the time to snatch it up (Android | iOS). Otherwise, Android users have something to look forward to – we just don't know what or when exactly that will be.

Canon 24-70mm L II Captures Reflections at Independence Pass, Colorado
A great way to make a good scene better is to add a reflection and water is perhaps the most common reflective surface used in landscape photography. At least relatively still water is needed if what is reflecting is to be recognizable and, when shooting in extremely windy locations (this one qualifies), small bodies of water tend to be most still.
 
Shaded water often provides a better reflective water surface than water under direct sunlight. At the top of Independence Pass, the setting sun shines horizontally across the landscape and casts a shadow evenly across this small alpine meadow pond. The dark water nicely reflects the great clouds overhead
 
This is a manual HDR processed image with a subtle increase in reflection brightness being the result.

From the Canon Professional Network:
“I didn’t know I needed it, until I saw the quality...”
 
Fashion photographer and Canon Explorer Quentin Caffier is on fashion photography’s fast track. One of Europe’s new breed of busy modern professionals, his recent shoot with a pre-production EOS 5DS has convinced him that – to stay ahead of the curve – he needs every one of those 50.6 Megapixels. CPN caught up with him recently to find out why...
 
“I am always looking for quality in my pictures,” he states. “But in my work I have to shoot fast. From my previous experience with high megapixel medium-format cameras, the bigger the megapixels meant the slower the camera. And for me, when I use a camera like that, the risk I face when working with models spinning around in dresses, for example, was always that I might lose the shot. That’s why I always preferred to use my EOS-1D X DSLR because I knew it would never let me down. Its reactions were always so much faster.”
 
But the advantage of speed always came at the expense of ultimate image quality. In Quentin’s business, detail is king and when the EOS 5DS arrived he was keener than most to see how it performed.
 
“I only had the opportunity to use it twice, because there was only one body to share amongst all the other Canon Explorers,” Quentin explains, “But it was enough. I shot JPEG because the RAW software was still being developed at the time, but I can tell you that I was impressed.”
See the entire article on the Canon Professional Network.
