steven8217: On Fisherman on the Dam, I wonder why there are light reflections on the water when the light source (perhaps street light?) are behind the dam? Unless the light source are right on top of the dam?
An interesting light source that can illuminate the face of all 3 fisherman?
Also interesting for all 3 fisherman to spread their leg that far apart at the same time in normal walking posture?
Is there an additional layer of texture on the upper part of the photo?
Overall it seems like a stage outdoor type of stage <studio light> shot.

Staged was the first thing I thought.

sh10453: I don't see how # 3 (the cave) is related to weather, or how it got 2nd prise, but that's just a personal opinion.

I agree. I also don't think it's that great of a photo compared to similar "cave" photos I have seen. There are a number of the runner-ups that were far more deserving.

BobYIL: Another lesson for those of us who think their photography would improve proportional to what they spend for it...

Agree. Should end all of the gear arguments. Just get out and shoot!

Wes Syposz: she never really explains why she prefers a FF...

Focal length is the same no matter what camera she uses. A 300mm is a 300mm on 135 or aps-c formats. The angle of view varies.

In reply to:

Greg VdB: Very classy shot, beautifully composed. What was the light source? A monitor or something?

Good call, it was my LCD television. Shot in the early morning before I went to work. The TV was the only light source and it was constantly changing in color and intensity.

kai liu: many times, lens is way more important than body. I used to use pentax for 2 years. then I switched to canon 7d. Canon just have so much more lens choice. Pentax lens selection is really limited. And their lens quality are behind canon lens. When I see k-3, it sure looking amazing, but then I think about those pentax lens I have used, I lost interest. I think pentax's priority is to update their lens. They have not announce some high quality lens for many years.(except that 560mm) but look at canon they keep making new lens and update old lens with better optical.

Pentax lenses are as good as any others. Some Pentax lenses have operational issues, but so do lenses from other manufacturers. They don't have to update them optically because they are already good.

tarakanchik: pretty interesting

Thanks. I didn't think it would do well here, but worth a shot. Most people go for the standard "pretty" shots.
