Paul Sauders wins the BBC/Veolia Underwater Wildlife Photographer of the YearOctober 20, 2011 - 10:22 am
Tough competition and amazing underwater captures in almost every category

Paul Sauders won the BBC/Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year in the Underwater World category. Paul's capture of a couple of walrus gracefully swimming  in the arctic waters amazes not only in terms of quality but makes you wonder - would you have the guts to slide down from an iceberg and do it?
The competition was obviously very tough but Paul was above everyone getting the runner up as well with yet another fearless behavior capture of a grizzly bear hunting on salmon at Katmai National Park in Alaska. We can see some stunning captures among the highly commended shots by Clark Miller, Alex Tattersall, Louis-Marie Préau, Nuno Sá and couple of images by Thomas Peter Peschak.
It is very pleasing to see underwater images taking over many other categories. Frenchman Joe Bunni won the Mammals Behavior with a split shot of a polar bear and the runner up is Richard Herrmann's shot of a blue whale feeding on krill by Los Coronados Islands in Baja California, Mexico. Couple of splits were highly commended: Bence Máté's feeding dalmatian pelicans shot in Lake Kerkini in Greece for Animal Portraits and Cyril Ruoso's frogs shot in a frozen lake some 2,000 metres up in the French Alps.

Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year is owned by the Natural History Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine. Please visit the Natural History Museum's website to see all winning images.

Adobe develops Image DeblurringOctober 18, 2011 - 8:14 am
A plugin under development eliminates blur caused by camera shake

In a stunning presentation during MAX 2011 Adobe revealed a new process called Image Deblurring. In brief, the future Photoshop versions may be able to automatically analyze an image blurred by camera shake and restore a perfectly sharp picture.

The Photoshop plugin under development analyzes the camera shake determining the motion that caused the blur. Then it rearranges the pixels in order for you to get a perfectly sharp picture as if taken with a tripod. Obviously such Photoshop feature would make all owners of old non IS lenses very very happy. It would also aid us to produce great photos from our nights out, no matter how drunk we were at the bar.
As with all sneak peeks Adobe does not commit to the time and whether at all this feature would be included in any upcoming Photoshop releases, but it would for sure be a nice thing to have.

You can watch the MAX 2011 presentation by Jue Wang at Adobe TV
