G L: I do not know.But often by such photo contests I think the most unusal photo wins.Not often that I think "Wow that is really a great picture".It has just to be unusual that seems to be the most important thing to win a competion.
And no I don´t participate at any competions, I just like it to take pictures as I like it to go for a walk in the morning sun.
If I'd seen that (#10) on my morning stroll i'd feel mildly disturbed as it would mean i'd awoken that day in a Disney movie!
4 & 10 are incredibly corny..........my favourite is 8. The amount of photoshop used in general is staggering
That lion reminds me of Barry Gibb
This is the best one!............could have used a little more cropping / straightening!
PhotoKhan: Once myths are created, a minimal amount of anecdotery ensures the required continuum.
Poetic & true
Do they have a Duplo version for people with fat fingers?
Dazzer8888: You might as well just show us some stills from a Pixar movie, that's about as much as this technical exercise has to do with reality.
Although to criticise these as "bad examples of HDR" is over-simplifying the technique involved. I think the multiple exposures taken were really just a small part of the process........obviously hours were spent photoshopping every pixel of these images, and the multiple exposures simply gave the photog the "best" exposure to choose from for photoshopping each area of the image.
If you really think that, then you know very little about photography and post-processing.....or perhaps you jest.

Will certainly have implications and applications in forensics.
I wonder if this guy uses a Canon or Nikon neck brace?!
Great stuff, photoshop used only to enhance an already well chosen composition, no sunsets, lightning strikes or beautiful horses needed..........
I'd be curious to know: does it say "Leica" on the outside? If so, it would seem to be a bit of a theft magnet. If not, then i might get one for my sony A7! ;)
Nice stuff, much better than the usual over Photo-Shopped fare DPR serves up! Of course these have also been PS'd, but only in the way of optimizing an already great shot, rather than taking a bleh photo and relying on PS to make something out of it. IMHO.
"However, at $59.95 it makes a somewhat more affordable solution, even when you add the price of the camera"
"Solution" for what?
I too am curious who'd pay almost 10 benjamins for a 1TB external hard drive?!
Amazing photoshop skills!
J A C S: You did not challenge the bokeh enough. Only a few such shots, focused too close.
Probably because pro photographers are not too concerned with bokeh, more with composition and light..........
