Also, wy wife scrapbooks. Our hobbies/addictions feed each others. You need something like this.

If you go out of your way to make your UI even less user friendly than Adobe's, you are wrong. I do like the 'skin tone' tool though. Might have to get some portrait-centric plugins for Lightroom for that.

What are the "top five" photography review sites?

I just Google stuff and troll forums I find. That way it takes a lot of the ads out of the equation. Most any site will have some kind of bias so filtering through human interaction is very useful. I glean information to make many decisions about hardware and useful practice that way.
TheEmrys wrote:The hard part is that it is nearly impossible to be objective about something so subjective as art (photography). Yeah, we can say it has fast and accurate focus, good low light performance, but to quantify bokeh? Yeah, good luck. All we can say is that "Yes, that is pretty bokeh" or "That bokeh is distracting/ugly/doughnut shaped."

I am noticing the same 'distortion' along the bottom (southern?) edge of the moon in your shot that I saw in mine, taken ~2200 US Central. Looks like the atmosphere was fairly unfriendly for this super moon?

Anything near the horizon is not really round. I guess that's what you mean, it's the atmosphere refracting the image.
