Suave: Why sue for billions when you can sue for..... TRILLIONS?

Oh, she actually justified that number!.. It's the profits Chipotle made from the date picture was taken to date of the law suit. She thought she should be entitled to 100% of those profits, mind you; as we all know that the picture was the ONLY reason Chipotle made any money.

Great shot! I'm surprised it didn't place better.

Pitchertaker: My favorites are #7, #11, #13 in that order. #6 and #12 are not landscapes. #1 won? Eye roll.

I agree, 12 is terrible. A cell phone snampshot that would go straight in the trash if it were mine. Not to mention that it's street photography and not landscape in the most obvious way.

Sean65: Nice to see shots that haven't been completely over cooked in PP. I really like shot 12, very Fred Herzog, but I'm not sure it fits with the rest.

I thought 12 was terrible :\ and doesn't remotely belong.

barrym1966: i dont usually criticize other peoples work but number 4 looks awful with the white background looks like a really bad photoshop cutout

Hm, I liked it best. Thought it was very different from the usual stuff, and a moment hard to reproduce. The white background (hopefully not photoshopped but even if is) makes it cleaner and the bird stands out nicely. I guess it goes to show how different people's tastes are -- I always find that interesting.

DaddyG: Thanks for the comments all.
There is some confusion around the photo of the Spoonbills - image no. 7.
I can confirm that absolutely no cloning or compositing was done on the birds in this image. This is exactly the formation the five birds were captured in.

^^^LOL

In reply to:

dynaxx: ... and the astrophotography ?

Most cameras take adequate pictures of tundra and the Northern Lights. This is light years away from the true purpose of the camera.

sweet pun!

On article Winds of Change: Shooting changing landscapes (62 comments in total)
In reply to:

mononk: Interesting indeed. But may I suggest you post an identical article with examples from places not so exotic as Iceland and Africa? I.e. NY City, Paris, London, Rio... The average Jo will more likely visit these places a few times in his life and will try his luck in finding a new point of view. Many thsnks.

For landscapes, imo, location is extremely important. And more often than not, one has to travel a little bit to get a great shot. You can be the best photographer in the world but if your subject is blah, you will have a great image of something boring. Sure, anyone can find things to photograph near by but if you're looking for something like Antelope Canyon, for instance, and you live in the northeast... there's not much you can do. Also, it is possible to travel to places like Iceland and Alaska on a budget, I did, and it was great.

Horshack: If I'm ever lucky enough to be in Iceland I'll be out taking landscapes every day even if the forecast called for earth-destroying meteors :)

recently tried that but there's not much you can see when it's snowing with hurricane-level wind speeds, believe me :)

cantanima bis: I've heard that Iceland is one of those places where if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes.

until it gets much much worse!
