The first thing you’d notice about the camera is how beautiful it Really is. It’s a work of art. And not only does it look good, but it feels good in the hand; it feels solid, yet fragile all at once. The exposure and shutter speed dials on the top of the body are firm; you won’t be accidentally changing settings. More importantly, they’re easy to reach without having to look at the camera, though of course it’s a matter of habit from one camera to another. Most of my shooting was done through the old firmware, and I only got to test out v2.0 of the firmware on the last day. That said, the autofocus, while “slow”, wasn’t really as terribly slow as people complain about. Again, it depends on what photography you’re doing. Most of my testing consisted of portraits or inanimate scenery. My primary camera is a Canon 5D MKII, so probably that’s why I don’t see the X-Pro1 as particularly slow in focusing. There were plenty of bells and whistles hidden in the menus. Panorama shots.
Some bits and pieces of colour options and picture options and dynamic range options and the sort. The panorama mode was decent, though quite frankly the Fujifilm X10 performed better here. Not that the resolution isn’t good; it was a matter of the X-Pro not keeping up with my motion. So I’d be panning and after doing a 180 and stopping I could still hear the camera snapping and trying to keep up on the LCD panel at the back. Anyway, there are plenty of settings to mull over, but shooting in a RAW file renders most of them pretty useless anyway. And what a RAW file it produces.
The Art of AngelsHuffington PostThere is a tendency to think of works of art as frozen in time, dropped like manna from heaven by some master artist.
Samuel Kwon's insight:
A work of art in a biblical and religious style of demonstrating an angel painted on with many theme arts with it. The one example, The Offering of Angels, has been famous for centuries with the one painting of The Madonna and the Child, The Holy Family with the Young Saint John and perhaps the most widely recognized painting in the Offering of Angels is Sandro Botticelli's Madonna and Child ("Madonna of the Loggia"). Some of the paintings has gone through many restoration caused by aging fabric, peeling paint work, travels, etc. The only parts of the painting that are definitely original are the red gown of the Virgin and the distant landscape. This painting has been highly prized throughout its history, yet has undergone continual upgrades and modifications.

A logo is a symbol or emblem used by commercial enterprises, institutions, and organizations to promote public recognition. In simpler terms, a logo can be defined as the face or brand of a business. As every designer needs is their main purpose of designing a logo that would attract people in a modern attraction. But the things must also consider of "old" design of how they gotten so popular for years. For example, Kentucky Fried Chicken, "KFC", has chosen it to be a face figure, the founder of KFC and made it into headlines because of how the logo is shown with the face of the maker and the trust that the chicken you eat from KFC is the best of the world.
Like every designer needs to know is that, the logo can be a very sensitive piece of the puzzle that makes up what you want to display for the company you design for. The size, the colors that comes together, the brand presentation, etc. A lot of things on the logo needs to be relfected over so the people needs to be interested not only the product but also needs to know what product or company that supports electronics, food/beverage, etc.
