Here in the northern hemisphere, autumn is progressing quickly – thick dewdrops cover the grass every morning, leaves are turning red and yellow, and the mountains are covered in fresh snow.
Our (revived) Livnig Picture of the Week fits the autumn theme: Lytro user beauty has nicely captured the wine grape harvest in western Slovenia:

Following their recent announcement, Lytro just has started the first ever International LightField Photo Contest.
For the next two months, you’ll have the chance to enter one Living Picture per day, per username. More precisely, submissions are accepted from May 1 to 21, and from June 1 to 21, 2013.
About a month ago, Lytro released version 2.0 of their Desktop Software for Mac and Windows.
The update included not only the new Perspective Shift and Living Filters features, but was also the first version to officially support Windows 8 64-bit. Another new aspect of the software, to be comprehensive, is the possibility to change the Lytro Library location from within the software interface.
Among the usual “Miscellaneous bug fixes and improvements to performance and stability”, however, we found another quite strong improvement: It looks like the latest Lytro Desktop version makes up for some pale, washed-out colours, and greatly enhances color representation in (at least some) pictures.
This week’s Picture of the Week was taken by Lytro’s own Eric Cheng, and shows not only an excellent depth image- and depth composition, but also the perfect use of Living Filters.
Have fun exploring the picture, and don’t forget: Click to refocus, click & drag to shift perspective.

After a few weeks of work-related silence (apologies!), we’d like to wish you all some belated Happy Holidays.
