My right arm is bigger than my left, but for different reasons.

sunjester: Every time I go out birding and run into many small women and very old folks with huge dslr's and even larger lenses. I think of the all the whning of MFT users specifically dpreview Olympus wimps and laugh. They have such thin oh I mean short arms. Maybe it's a point of view thing?

Olympus camera division another million dollars down the drain. Well at least they are good at that.

TheEngineer, you need an apostrophe for "its".

Karl Summers: #2 is excellent. Was it taken with a single exposure?

Thanks for the reply, I had no idea that was film! Very nicely done.

I applaud the brave souls who dared offer constructive criticism of the artist's work. I find the photos themselves to be technically excellent, and the one with the keys is downright artistic, but I must agree, many of the pictures look like the thousands of photos you can find all over the web. I cannot say mine are better, but I am not stating as such, I am simply giving my opinion. I look forward to landscape photography heading in a new, original direction, and I will applaud the artist who leads the charge. Will it be me? Maybe, maybe not.

Many are just portraits...I wouldn't consider them 'street photography'.

Damien Demolder: Here's a quote from the 'About Us' section of the website. It may clear up some concerns aired here:

The Epson International Pano Awards was founded in 2009 by Australian landscape photographer David Evans with the help of Epson Australia.

Our aim is to give the genre of panoramic photography its day in the sun, especially via the showcase of winning and top-scoring entries to media around the world.

It is a collaboration between dedicated professional photographers, industry professionals and sponsors, and is a labour of love for all involved. Fees are set to cover IT, marketing and PR, prize money, judges fees, exhibition and administration of the competition only. There are no company profits to the organiser, Epson, or any sponsors or entities.

We would like to acknowledge our headline sponsor Epson Australia, and all our sponsors and judges, for their invaluable support.

The International Pano Awards

David Evans, Curator

I'm curious, if our entry fees are covering basically ALL the expenses, what is the purpose of the 'sponsors'?

Some of these photos are amazing, especially #9 and #11.

Suave: Let me guess, it needs newer i7, 16-32GB RAM, SSD, and bridged GPUs?

Minimum i7 Octa core, 128GB RAM, Quad SLI. Hope this helps.

Karl Summers: Manual focus...but can I assume there is a focus confirmation chip?

I'm coming from a Canon frame of mind.

riveredger: It's funny that some of these lenses are priced higher than motorcycles. I mean, really!?

I find motorcycles to be completely worthless, so your comment made little sense to me.

You can find the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II at Canon Price Watch from an authorized dealer for $200 less.

Did you try to obtain a sample from Really Right Stuff?(BH-40) Seems like that would surely deserve a review.
