I only have 4 and it seems to hum along pretty nicely because of processor speed. I do find that the screen is freaking huge though and I spend a lot of time looking at the left side. :)

Right, the extra RAM is like...Bonus speed...and it's only @ $250 from OWC for 16GB's. Pretty soon, all other screens you look at will just seem small:confused::D

3.2GHz Intel Core i3.....

OWC = the best and only (IMHO) place to buy mac upgrades and accessories.

Got it! I was looking at SSD drives there when I was thinking about speeding up the laptop but ended up with the iMac instead.

What amazes me about SMWYG is the variety of styles and genres presented each week. This is why I wonder out loud how the judges manage the lot. In a typical juried show the genre is specific but here you have no idea what will be presented unless you wait until the end of the week. If a slew of top portraits are posted that cool rainbow in NYC (fictional) may not make it but a week later it very well could. Makes for a fun event though because I've been really studying each image and opening my visual vocabulary. That said much of what is posted would not enter my reality let alone my lens.

Some great images this week. A nice cross section. Thank you all for posting and making this event special!

yes, this makes it very difficult.

We thought about setting subjects but the point was to get people out and shooting...and being creative. So we didn't put any restrictions on it. But it really does make it hard to choose. Sometimes when all things are equal, it comes down to a preference.

There are many ways to see great photographs. There are many great photographer like Bresson, Davidson, Winogrand, Franks, and many other street photographers that learned to see the moment and others that set everything up like the one Lisa showed and everything in between. Joel-Peter Witkin is another that likes to set up everything. Theres also previsualist (west coast school-zonesystem) and post visualists (east coast school-mostly street). Its all good. Find something that works for you....

Back to this, here was what Bresson has to say about his approach.

" "Manufactured' or staged photography does not concern me. And if I make a judgment, it can only be on a psychological or sociological level. There are those who take photographs arranged beforehand and those who go out to discover the image and seize it. For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which - in visual terms - questions and decides simultaneously. In order to "give a meaning" to the world, one has to feel oneself involved in what he frames through the viewfinder. This attitude requires concentration, a discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry. It is by great economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression. One must always take photos with the greatest respect for the subject and for oneself." - Henri Cartier-Bresson
