Every one of these images is in and of itself is a winner. In my opinion, there is no clear cut "best" image. This said I did cast my vote :) :)
FoveonPureView: A blessed, godly Jesus Christmas! Just incase you're affraid of the C/J/G-words...
Hey Simon! They call Dec 25th "Christmas" for reason.
He's made something out of nothing and I admire/respect the Fro for that. He does get on my nerves from time to time so I just turn him off.
cpkuntz: Disaster snuff porn is the best of 2013? I understand the journalistic value of such images, but not really the artistic value. To me, this is the most beautiful image captured by humanity in 2013:

That picture of Saturn is A M A Z I N G!!!! Thanks for sharing that ;)
dcperspective: No IS No Sale for me.
I hear this often, can you please explain why you would need image stabilization on a lens like this?
I have the original and all I can say is that this is a fantastic lens.
Simply said, "Not a chance".
I wish they would do a **serious** update to this program.
If Nikon builds this camera with a metal body and they follow the tradition of Leica and a minimalist approach, you bet I'm buying one. If this camera is what I think it will be, it will be my last. Less is more provided its quality.
My Lee Split Grads, 10 Stop, and polarizer are indispensable.
yabokkie: basically black-and-white photos are those that were not composed well.

First thing that stands out for me? I see 7 or 8 pictures in a row of pain and suffering in one shape or form. We go from a woman holding an American flag of her loved one and the very next one is the PONTUS smiling and laughing.
AS of this posting the world UGLY was used 56 times across all three pages of comments. I guess it would be safe to say that this thing is ugly.
For me? A Leica M with auto-focus and 1/3 the price.
Know exactly where you took this! I'm not a big fan of HDR but in this case it works well. The detail in those waves is just perfect. Nicely Done!!!
Plastek: From DPReview: "reputation scores give new users an idea of the kind of person they're talking to, and may encourage better behaviour."
That's the greatest pile of **** since an interview with Nikon PR person.
It'll do nothing else them provoking troll battles. Trolls will post agains trolls - Nikon trolls will up any opinion about non-Nikon brand, and Canon trolls will up any opinion about non-Canon brand.
Eventually it'll end up with everyone afraid posting anything against brands with most trolls as it'll kill their reputation instantly.
I suppose one could create two profiles? One for the good side and one for the bad side of the coin... so to speak.
Amazing photograph! Well done!!
