In The News From around the web

Veteran photographer and Nikon Ambassador Bill Frakes was there to capture all the action.
Frakes said that the image below shows off his entire collection of cameras, except for a handheld camera, and that he is “pretty sure” he has everything needed to shoot the race.
I received some information that the Nikon D810 camera will no longer be in production in 2017.
Given previous release patterns, Nikon tend to announce cheaper cameras first (D610/D750) and then follow up with a higher-end, more expensive model (D810).
If you're wondering about the rules of our accepting a composited image into our contest, it's simply a matter of taste, and if it's a well-done and artfully crafted composite, you bet we'll allow it!
His compelling image this month of a classic WWII-era fighter silhouetted against a pristine sky certainly captivated the judging panel here at IR, and we both thank and congratulate Bob on yet another well-deserved First Prize achievement in our contest!
Well, if you're feeling impatient you can grab some excellent deals right now on Nikon D610, D750, and D810 cameras at B&H.
