The bitter pettiness of the most "popular" comments on this article perfectly illustrates the pathetic state of amateur photography (or, preferably as a category: camera ownership) these days. Small wonder the majority of talented members of DPR left the site long ago .
What's a "DSC02865"?
Jogger: I dont like the super exaggerated perspective from the near-fisheye lenses on the drones.
Better look away, then. You'll probably find plenty of more comfortable images to look at.
davids8560: I just want a Sony RX100 Mark III because they say it's the best, and it probably is the best, and I only want the best whatever. Because everybody knows only the best cameras take good pictures, and people who have the best things are smarter and better than those who don't. N-yeh!!!!
Hey, you're right, I never thought of that.I'll have to order one today.
Solar Ben: Great job on processing, looks awesome.
Thanks! Much appreciated.
Yes, this is a well-deserved win. Definitely a world-class landscape.
Congratulations! I'm curious as to how you determined the correct exposure, if you wouldn't mind sharing.
Subtle this ain't. Therefore destined to win.
Wow! Should have gotten an award for most unusual pet.
Neat shot. Great dogue!
mcshan: Whenever DPR posts a story about photos winning awards it is always the same handful out here that wrap their arms around the results and lecture others on how to define art. Art is very subjective. Award winning? Milli Vanilli won a Grammy as best new artist in part for their singing.
If the "award" in this story was titled "best Photo by a Soccer Mom" would the photos be heralded in the same way? I am not so sure.
It is nice that Sony gives out awards but in the end it really doesn't mean much.
I'd have a lot more respect for Sara Lewkowicz if she had hit the husband over the head with her camera rather than just shooting snapshots of the wife getting beaten up. Neither her actions nor her photographic skills merit any award, imo. Just one more photo-voyeur (or voyeuse in her case).
tim and jan: be a great photo if it were in focus
No greater joy on DPR these days than pi$$ing on someone else's joy, eh?
Marla2008: Are we just condemned to HDR now ? Lord, I hate that stuff....
Gee, that's kinda like hating all of South America.Big hate.
I guess that means I won't be getting any Amazon drone deliveries since I, too, live in a reckless manor.
Lardinio: Welcome to the Nikon 1 V3 - Fast Everything, except fast moving off the shelves!
So you only buy cameras that sell in large quantities. Good selection criteria. Nothing to do with photography, of course. ;)
intruder61: too late, a polished turd.
Which you are an unchallenged expert on. ;)
Surprisingly trite takes on its subjects & uninspired composition/processing.
Great stuff! Deserved win.
