On Behind the Shot: Clouds over Skagsanden article (116 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kim Letkeman: Hmmm ... can't agree at all with the choice of crop or angle. The beach sand is such a dominating element that it needs to be made interesting by creating some angle. Straight on as it is feels wrong to me. I was originally thinking that stepping to the right until the entire rock on the left could be contained and the sand pattern was angled to the front and left diagonally was the right choice. And I still think it would have worked well.

But then I saw the amazing large rocks on both sides, framing the shot in a truly interesting way and think that might have been an excellent image as well. And it would have worked at a longer aspect ratio, i.e. a true panorama. Printed as a tryptic would made it a smashing success I would bet.

But this image does nothing for me other than to confirm for the millionth time that there is a very target rich environment there ...

Had the rock formations on each side been included, they would have also added to the image theme of balance as they are nearly identical in height. Also this would have allowed a better placement for the currently very centered horizon.

marc petzold: Nice Info about that particular picture background, i was happy to read it,
more of that, please. That composition looks very good to my eyes.

Apart from that, the Canon 16-35 L II Lens wasn't that good reviewed at lenstip, for example:

Canon EF 16-35 mm f/2.8L II USM
11. Summary

Pros:

solid, sealed barrel,
excellent image quality in the frame centre,
chromatic aberration sensibly controlled,
only slight distortion, taking into account the focal lengths range,
low astigmatism,
low vignetting level,
very quick, silent and accurate autofocus,
lens hood and a case included.

Cons:

unacceptable image quality at frame edge in the aperture range from f/2.8-4.0,
average work against bright light,
bad price/quality ratio.

Does the image presented here, look unacceptable to you?

I would not have cropped out the sides like that.

0MitchAG: I can't believe out of all submissions, let alone finalists, that image 1, won. Why does photojournalism always have to consist of tragedy? It probably would have been easier to photograph any of the disabled or dying children in the cancer ward - or would the 'emotional impact' not be the same because those children are 'privileged'?

Because tragedy sells.

Those engineering samples would make great coffee mugs and pen holders.
