i think it sell well.
anna pilipova has made every award with a series pretty boring...shooting snow place in russia'? but award are just a repeating. most jurors look other award and simply replicate the choice automatically.

Going to Bangladesh for Easter, I really only shoot twice a year, Easter and Christmas holidays, I am a tourist, not a pro. I would go to Lalibela for their Christmas (7 Jan). That's when the pilgrimage gets massive, not sure now. I was in Sri Lanka last year if you need any tips for those two countries give me a shout.

Thanks Jonny. I m the author of the Lalibela reportage and I was surprised to be selected as unlike the others I am just an amateur. If you are a travel photographer these days it is difficult to find something that has not been photographed yet. When I took these pics I was not aware of the pilgrimage, I found myself there by chance. I agree many of my pics are "saw it already" (I realized it when back) but there are a couple I am proud of, in particular the exorcist. I did some research when back from the trip and could not find any pic on the subject on the internet. Only later in 2015, after my trip, the Guardian commissioned a reportage on the exorcism in Ethiopia and as far as I can see those are the only ones on the subject. Reportage are always more difficult then single shots, as they have to tie together and finding 10 "masterpieces" in a 10 pic reportage is very difficult. If you are curious I have more pics here https://www.flickr.com/photos/madario/albums/72157654249484730

DPR has put only one pic per photographer in the gallery but in reality these are reportages of 10 pics each and you should judge them as such. Take a look at the WPO website https://www.worldphoto.org/zeiss-camera-lenses/2017-zeiss-photography-award

Mais78: Glad to have made it to the short-list! Apparently I am the only non-pro

Thanks Damien. Indeed, almost 5000 photographers from all over the world. Also the exhibition in London is great, I go every year. Nice to see a few of mine hanging on the walls this time!

Having tried a Leica SL I have to say that is the viewfinder that I prefer over optical, anything less I prefer OVF

I own a EM5 I as back up body for my FF and I am very happy about it and available lenses. Anyway I would never spend more than 600-700 euro for a m43 camera. The advances vs olders bodies are minor, so a new release is a good chance to buy the older body at discounted price.

Have m43 sensors peaked with EM5? Are the EM5II, EM1 and EM1II any better?

Thanks, you have confirmed, probably without understanding it, it was a discretionary marketing decision to have people pay for the EJ, just like I said.

You don't get my point. I am not arguing that ALL exhibitions should be free. At Tate Modern some are free and some have to pay (eg ATM Philippe Parreno is free, EJ pics you have to pay). And this is entirely an arbitrary decision. You could use your faulty argument for the Philippe Parreno Exhibition that is free instead. "The PP exhibition should be a paid exhibition so that the EJ exh. can be free". It is also a matter of sponsors some time, if they could find a big sponsor for the EJ one it could be free. Anyway if you don't get it it doesn't matter.

I assume they pay their staff also for the "free part of the gallery" despite the fact it is free, don't they? The fact that they will make us pay to see this particular collection is just an arbitrary decision, they could show it in the "free part".

@jccrtv In Europe many museums are free

@Stu5 "certain parts are free and certain parts are not", any good reason why this should not be free? I assume EJ is not asking for money.

Mais78: I manage my Lightroom catalog and pictures out of an external drive (Touro S 7200rpm USB 3.0). Will an SSD drive make a noticeable difference when doing post production (aside from importing speed)?

That is clear, but will the difference be really noiticeable and worth the price?

Mais78: Why DPR calls the 5DIV "SEMI-professional"?? Professional photojournalists will use the 5DIV over 1D all day, same for most wedding photographers, travel photographers etc.

I would call the 1D and 5D professional (just different uses) and 6D semi-professsional (even though it is the second body for many professionals)
