On 2014 Sony World Photography Awards finalists revealed article (66 comments in total)

Like others here, I initially found #3 boring, unimaginative and pointless.

However, the more I look at it, the more I like it. Just cover the upper half of the picture with your hand and look at the lower half until you get the feeling of the place. Then do the opposite, look at the upper half after you cover the lower half. Quite two different pictures, isn’t it? But it is only one.

The new, tall, ugly and lifeless buildings look to me like an approaching tsunami that will soon cover the old world. Quite a story, I would say.

Having said that, my favorites are #7, 8 and 11, in this order.

I do not find anything offensive about these pictures.

I like #8, #4 and (maybe) #5 (in this order). Not that much the rest. #3 and #6 are the least interesting.

Tonio Loewald: So it's like Detroit with nicer landscape?

And with a much lower crime rate.

Step 2: Bigger lights on a motorcycle, taking pictures from the sidewalk.

Step 3: Even bigger lights on a Segway, taking pictures in a shopping mall while being chased by security (also on Segways). Now THAT would impress me!

On A Serious Rangefinder Compact Camera article (137 comments in total)

Mine is not exactly a camera, but a phone app. You enter the map and time coordinates and you get a picture on the screen as seen from that very precise point, at that very precise time, which you can scroll, focus and zoom all around. The picture is recomposed from an image database recorded by a gazillion of lytro-type cameras spread everywhere in the known world and stored in the cloud.

On second thought, why bother with a smart phone in the first place? Just think at it, close your eyes and have the image projected in your mind. I can already do that.

Sam Carriere: My bet is that it will be in the stores before the Nikon D800.

Is B&H taking preorders?
