Ozyxy: What's up with horizontal websites? I liked #1 (and the other photos of course) and I clicked to see the photographer's website to see what else is there but the site requires horizontal scrolling to see the photos, I couldn't use it so I just left without seeing anything... I think photographers who create horizontal websites miss a lot of visitors. Nobody can use a horizontal website. Why don't they make their websites vertical as every website should be?

You're lucky.

I think I saw a bra strap and it's extremely offensive to me.

HowaboutRAW: did #1 really have to be cliché softcore?

You have issues.

Joe Ogiba: Swap the gold for 1/8000 sec shutter speed like the lower cost FF cameras.

I'm sympathetic, as a Dƒ owner, about the shutter and focus systems, but surely the same design teams aren't responsible for a bit of gold plating and core design.

Potemkin_Photo: "Hasselbladding it" will soon become industry slang.

This is not comparable at all. This is tasteful, and is nearly the same price as the silver/black.

Zeisschen: Looks like Nikon marking the end of the DSLR Era.

FF mirrorless system next year?

I hope not.

In reply to:

ealvarez: What is holding back Nikon from pioneering a class leading mirror-less camera? Is it not a possibility f-mount mirror-less? I would understand the hesitation business wise if they had to sacrifice on lens sales.. This is an honest question can f-mount lenses work with mirror-less system? I understand some people like big cameras but there are also who like Sony a6000 - Fuji XT1 - Pana Gx7 size camera with Nikon IQ, AWB, Auto ISO, AF, dynamic range, NO COLOR BANDING, light metering capability..

Poor focus and terrible battery life.

Yes, I did give it a try. Six months, shooting every day. No, I did not like it.

A mirror is a FEATURE - one that I want.

Good move. This was a travesty.

0MitchAG: I can't believe out of all submissions, let alone finalists, that image 1, won. Why does photojournalism always have to consist of tragedy? It probably would have been easier to photograph any of the disabled or dying children in the cancer ward - or would the 'emotional impact' not be the same because those children are 'privileged'?

Some stories need to be told.

IsisPix: Slow news week in Seattle? Since you have nothing to do, why don't you tell us what happened with Sony at Photokina? Did they snub the show?

While you're at it, beat the bushes for some D400 news?

*I* find it ridiculous, but if it makes money, and builds market share, I say good luck!

When they do, look at their gallery first.

I think the editors are qualified to choose.

Jurka: Those pics are empty.

Great shots, Jurka, but you must have had some instruction and criticism from peers. Did they call any of your early work "empty"?

You see where I'm going with this?

In reply to:

Cane: Every time I find a Camera I think I will like, the dreaded, "AF is very slow" comment rears it's ugly head. I am tired of slow AF. When will this be a thing of the past and not a line in most new camera reviews still in 2014?

Battery life too.

A proper mirror for me.

Magnum photographer Rene Burri died today, sadly.

He photographed many of the personalities of 20th century and contributed greatly to both documentary and street photography.

Google him, his Magnum portfolio is here:

In reply to:

Jurka: Those pics are empty.

@Karroly It's obvious that some thought and timing went into many of these. I think "empty" is overly harsh.

Using your description, could not Henri Cartier-Bresson's shot, nearly universally heralded as "the decisive moment" not be called "dude jumping off some wood"?

Sure, none of these are a Cartier-Bresson, but I think this place is "empty" of constructive criticism, having been replaced by passive aggression and a complete lack of a modicum of tact.

Samba86: I personally like the first and the last, like the mood and composition on both photos. I can find more or less interistings the other ones.
But, please, the second one?! A person walking with a plastic shopping bag?!?! Don't try to sell me that this is an impressive photo...

It's rare that someone comes up with a totally unique composition that didn't originate from before photography was even invented, though, isn't it?

I agree that it's not the strongest in the group, but I can't dismiss it just because it's a guy with a shopping bag. There is thought here, and a certain eye for details and execution as well.

Forget, for a moment, the subject. Instead, look at the the interplay between shapes and colours.
