Whilst I agree with you about grabbing the viewer, I refer you again to this year's winner. A great shot, and as worthy a winner as any, but how would you have taken that with your iPhone?
I don't think I said it could be taken with an iphone? I only remarked that some of my personal favourite shots were made with my iphone. Of course an iphone could not deal with that kind of shot but the canon 400d that Yeomanss owns could? The exif data of the winning shot says :
Shutter Speed: 1/1250 sec.
So owning a canon 400d should not put him off :-) His camera would have been capable of producing that shot. The main reason that shot won was because Martin Keene said
" "This picture gets more exciting every time I look at it. Good photography is about using your camera to show people places and things that they cannot normally see for themselves. It's got action, energy, great composition, and that all important 'what's this all about?'
It was picked for the reasons I stated before, for its artistic merit and for engaging the viewer :-)
PS This feels like I am in my law class arguing a case for the defence lol
