“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.

Edinburgh Castle - Edinburgh, Scotland

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.

We couldn’t resist featuring another from Gonzalo Ruiz Calavera in Singapore. This one is behind the impressive Marina Bay Sands Hotel, taken in the Gardens by the Bay with its amazing artificial trees. Every evening there is a light show for one hour where you can capture many different colors.
