“In photography, there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”
— Alfred Stieglitz

Photography Digest: This week was all about the mirrorless cameras. Both Canon and Nikon finally unleashed their entries into the foray that has been dominated by Sony for the last several years. Canon revealed the EOS-R and Nikon the Z6 and the Z7. Both cameras have an impressive set of features, but if you ask us they both have a ways to go to usurp the mighty Sony Alpha a7 cameras. On the upside, we all got to learn about Flange Focal Distance. That should make a great conversation starter at our next tailgate party (Go Steelers!).

Admiralty Building - St., Petersburg, Russia

Dmitriy is this week’s shot of the week for his amazing photo of the Admiralty Building in St. Petersburg. This view is from Alexander Garden and is especially beautiful at night. As a bonus, the Fontan U Admiralteystva is perfect for reflection shooting.

Scott Goldsworthy is at Edinburgh Castle this week. The castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, from its position on the Castle Rock. Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age, although the nature of the early settlement is unclear.

“The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it.”

A quiet week for a change as the chill of fall starts to cut into the air up here in Canada. Just a few more weeks for us fair weather shooters. As always we have a great selection of photos to feature this week. Enjoy!

Please note images are low res and watermarked to protect intellectual property rights.

Roman Forum - Rome, Italy

This week’s feature shot goes to Dmitriy Don for this fantastic viewpoint of the Roman Forum. The Forum is a plaza of ruins at the center of the city of Rome. Citizens of the ancient city referred to this space, formerly a marketplace, as the Forum Magnum, or just the Forum.  For centuries the Forum was the center of day-to-day life in Rome: the site of triumphal processions and elections; the venue for public speeches, criminal trials, and gladiatorial matches; and the nucleus of commercial affairs.

Galeone Neptune - Genoa, Italy

Yarrrrrr! We love this shot by Vinicius Melo of Galeone Neptune. The ship is a replica of a 17th-century Spanish galleon. Built-in 1985 for Roman Polanski’s film Pirates, where she portrayed the Spanish ship of the same name. An accurate reproduction above the waterline, but sporting a steel hull and a 400 HP auxiliary engine, the Neptune is currently a tourist attraction in the port of Genoa, where you can tour its interior.

Poll na bPeist - Inis Mor, Ireland

Scott Goldsworthy shares a fascinating location this week. Called the “Poll na bPeist”  (yes, that is the spelling) it is also known as the “Wormhole.” It is a natural rectangular shaped pool into which the sea ebbs and flows. Located at the bottom of cliffs south of Dun Aonghasa on the island of Inis Mor, Ireland. A remarkable place, the geological formation is a true testament to mother nature’s pure beauty and power.

La Grande Hermine - Ontario, Canada

I finally got around to adding this favourite spot of mine. This is Jordan Harbour just West of St Catherines in Ontario, Canada. The long-abandoned ship is called La Grande Hermine and is the forgotten replica of a ship that was navigated in 1535. The replica was built as a floating restaurant for Expo 67 and was moved to its present location in 1997. In 2003, a fire reduced the ship to a charred hulk. Today it sits as a surprising rusting landmark on the way to Niagara Falls. Once again, this is why Lisette and I founded PIXEO. Every photographer should know where this is.

Port Hueneme Pier - California, USA

Doug Golupski is a master of waterfront beach shots and his submission this week is not a disappointment. We love the deep orange tones of this image of Port Hueneme Pier. It is a 1200 foot long wooden plank pier on the waterfront in Port Hueneme. The Pier is open to the public and located next to a favorite beach, Port Hueneme Beach Park. At sunset, the pier is a great place to be as the sun sets behind the Channel Islands.

A former parish church from the early 13th century, this ruin is a medieval church on a religious site founded c.560-90 and dedicated to St. Moluag.
