Around the web today; November 16th, 2011.

A review of sorts by Joe McNally and another photographer, commenting on Gregory Heisler's stunning new book '50 Portraits.'

Some extensive discussion about the shocking - but not surprising - step the Chicago Sun-Times took earlier this year; laying off its entire photo staff of 28 people, among them Pulitzer prize winner John H. White, replacing them with pictures from the iphones of reporters:

Looking through the amazing gallery of images that John H. White has captured in his career, it's sad to see that his journey as a veteran newspaper photojournalist comes to an end with a piece of paper, his four decades of experience and prodigious talent replaced by reporters with an iphone, who have not been educated in any way about visual journalism.
