On Surfing dolphins in the Mammals up close and personal challenge (9 comments in total)

Why this image hasn't gotten any comments is a bit baffling, but this is an excellent capture of something you don't see everyday. Nice job, one of my favorites. Glad you took first with this.

ThePhilips: I've seen better shots on Instagram. Because most Instagram images fill more of my display.

But these puny tiny images are barely 0.5MP...

There are no "scapes" in these landscapes.

Yeah I was looking for your glorious shots but couldn't seem to find anything. Perhaps yours are "too punny" for us to notice?

D Gold: Image is there, needs a tighter crop.

Steve your work speaks for itself, no need to justify or argue with the haters... the overwhelming positives responses by the other 99% here speaks for itself. Let the haters have their 1% of glory where necessary. You've got the majority by a mile.

Again, grate job with your image and first place win.

MichaelIsGreat4: A black and white picture in 2015? I never fail to be highly disappointed when someone posts such a black and white picture, no matter how good it is! Obviously, this picture would have been way much better in color!!!
For this reason alone, this picture should not get a 1st place even though it is a good picture.

As one who’s shot a lot of B&W film up until 2010, where I then moved to digital, and continue to do B&W work, I see things differently. Sticking to color is just limiting yourself. If that's your world, fine; thankfully everyone doesn’t see it that way which is why there are tons of books, magazines, and articles on doing B&W work.

But hey, if it were up to you, DP Review would dump the B&W forum.

No apologies, and I stand by my statement.

Peace.

While this isn't one of my favorite images. I commend the photographer for going on a ledge with it and taking first place. And I completely and utterly disagree with your notion that B&W images aren't deserving of first place awards.

And whether 2015 or 3015, B&W images will still be around due to their artistic nature. That while anyone can take a color images, not everyone can do B&W. In short, it ain't that easy.

Later.

Love the muted colors in the background. Has a 1960's western movie feel to it. Well done.

Mirrorless Crusader: This is a pathetic excuse for an award-winning photo project. There is absolutely zero technical skill demonstrated in these photos; anybody who happened to be hanging around some soldiers in Ukraine could have taken these with a consumer DSLR set to auto and the kit zoom lens. The composition is awful, there was no thought at all put into the white balance and colors, no action photos, nothing to demonstrate that a skilled photographer captured these images. I could have done better than this if I had nothing to do all day but fly to Ukraine and snap army pictures.

I'm just replying to what's posted... same as you! Perhaps you're the one in need of reading, or comprehension???

And in sticking to the thread... I thought the poster was quite dismissive of the risk, as well as talent it takes to get those images. Thus the statement I stick with.

Peace.

If it's so easy, you should have no problem going to a war torn area with your camera gear, bullets flying all around you, and get those award winning shots. After all, anyone can do it.

You up for the challenge?

Stacey_K: I have to agree with other posters. These awards, like the news, promote the display of the worst side of humanity. What's next, an award of excellence given to someone who goes around photographing the gruesome details from car crash scenes? It borders on voyeurism. I have zero interest in viewing these type "projects" anymore than I would slow down driving by a crash site to get a better look.

What are we supposed to do? Bury our heads in the sand and act like people aren't warring? Someone has to know what's going on in the world and these guys bring it.

I'll also add that it takes a lot of balls to do what these guys and gals are doing and it isn't for the faint of heart. So yeah, why not reward them? It's easy to criticize from the comfort of your home when you don't have bullets flying at you!

Everyone wants peace, but human nature is war. Look no further than history.
