See this on the BBC site : Historic Photographer of the Year

First picture: to me it looks like he's used Nik ColorFX, Midnight, with green colour set.

What do you think?

Nice enough scene at the pier but even at that wee wee size it still looks like an over processed mess stripped clean of detail. Ape-handed processing there. It's photography's own pandemic.

Palmyra in Syria is out of focus.

Tillya-Kari Madrassa is crooked.

St. Basil's Cathedral is far far better than the rest. Image quality isn't as important in that shot.

Boy oh boy oh Boy oh boy, the forum ain't gonna like this, but sometimes image quality does matter.... Sorry. Certainly would have made all but St. Basils far better photographs.

I wonder if the upload is just crunched out. Either way, this is not a jolly good show by the BBC.

They're all rather cheesy in my honest opinion

There's no accounting for taste.  FWIW, it appears that most of the judges aren't photographers.  What are the weird black artifacts in the cartoonish Heddal image?

I think it looks like a cartoon, sad day for the BBC IMHO
