madeinlisboa: Forgive my words, but how could a piece o c*** like that get third place in a competition? It looks like a bad CGI work and that's an affront to photographers who spend years learning and refining their technique.
Yes, this photo is one of 19 in the portfolio. I don't think it is representative of most of the pictures in the group. See http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/02/11/through-my-eye-not-hipstamatics/
