OlyPent: "Fleeing death." Yeah, sure. Most "refugees" (and the term is used FAR too loosely today) aren't fleeing anything of the kind. They hear you can earn 10x more sitting around doing nothing in Germany or Norway than Syria or some northern African country. They are migrants, nothing more.

Some truly charming people here...

Makes sense. Photography has moved on, it is part of the larger imaging industry now, including stills, video, connectivity, and instant sharing.

Good set, a mix of contemporary and imaginative images. As usual, some people here just say negative comments that reflect envy? I challenge them to submit their portfolio to Magnum, see where it gets them.

What a sad comment indeed... I hope you never face a similar situation.

haylebob: dont understand why pic 7 won...can anybody please explain what the photographer means ...

I like it, the leaf intrudes in the image, cutting persons, and hiding the others from view. It has movement, lines, dynamics.

Seems like a winner of a lens. Great photos too, thanks for the article.

Very nice. Another example on how it is important to understand the subject, or subjects, we want to photograph.

All these childish comments about simple posters. It's 100 years after all, worth celebrating.

I like the image, because it "takes me there". Good job.

MrBrightSide: That does it. Everything's going on E-bay tonight! If those people can take such amazing photos with their iPhones, what is my problem? A D810, a bunch of lenses, an awesome tripod (actually two), three Speedlights, softboxes, lightstands... and I've never won anything.
Time to start over from square one. Wax on, wax off.....
(As an aside, I've made some fairly gorgeous 16x20 prints from my iPhone 7.)

All you need to do is to go out and find interesting subjects:)

Niko Tod: How to win a photography contest:
Find a conflict zone or an event which would be heavily protected by political correctness; juxt-a-pose someone's innocence with the horrors of war - children always provide the best results. Suffering, poverty, sadness and grotesqueness are your friends; never, ever, ever, ever photograph happiness, joy and laughter - you never gonna win anything.

Unfortunately, war is ever-present in our world. And children are the ones that suffer the most. Documenting such events is important, as a record for future generations.

CallumG: Why discriminate? How about just "phone" photography?

Perhaps because the competition was dedicated to iphones?

Good story, documenting an important event, and fulfilling the main role of photography: keeping memories alive.

Snapper2013: Que the why is an article featuring film era cameras and film being featured on a digital photography website crowd. That said, great article in my opinion! :-)

You know that digital photography started way before digital cameras right? About the time that folks would use for example film scanners to digitize their film and /or prints? How do you suppose the images end up in your screen?

Snapper2013: Bet this 14mm Sigma totally destroys the Zeiss 15mm 2.8 and all others for that matter. I'm also looking forward to the test results! 😛

I think destroying it will be difficult, since there is a lot of metal on it? Optically, well, the Zeiss lens was introduced more than 5 years ago, so no surprise if the Sigma turns out to be better. We will see.

biza43: I have 3 Gitzo tripods, older one is about 20 years old now, still going strong. Recently bought a Traveller Series 2 CF, for hiking. Top quality.

For all the negativism here, no one forces you to buy their stuff.

I know that. But Gitzo are still higher quality.
