When the term decisive moment gets thrown around, it’s usually used to describe a photographic moment that is fleeting — the kind of street photograph that’s there one instant and gone the next.
But the moments captured in these stunning landscape images by photographer Guy Tal are also decisive, not for their fleeting nature, but their rarity.

I had a few hours to spare last Sunday evening, so I thought I’d tweak a few things in Photocrumbs. But what started as some minor modifications resulted in an entirely reworked version of the application.
If you take a look at the Photocrumbs demo, you’ll notice that the application now uses a different layout: instead of a continuous stream, all photos are displayed as a thumbnail view. Clicking on a thumbnail shows the related photo in a separate view. While a photo stream layout worked well for publishing a handful of photos, the new approach is better suited for viewing a large photo collection.
The new version of Photocrumbs features a slightly more graceful handling of empty metadata, displaying n/a (as in not available) instead of blanks.
Another, rather minor, change is the new logo. I traced a technical drawing from a Nikkormat FTn repair manual using Inkscape and used the resulting SVG file as the Photocrumbs logo. And I added the ability to show user-defined text right under the logo. I use this feature to display photography-related quotes.
