So why bother with what the readers think (and vote for) in any case. I certainly am not suffering from sour grapes - my little Chard last night was perfectly drinkable!!!
Hmm... I wondered about digital manipulation too.
I have only just looked at the images - I did check before but they weren't up. It was only when I got the email that I looked.
There are at least three seriously digitally manipulated in the World in Motion category too. I was disappointed to see them in there. It does not detract from the image as such, but it seems to me to be a bit unfair to place them with others that have little or no manipulation. One of these had some kind of fractal filter or something - it was obvious it was a work of art rather than a photo.
Destination Everywhere - I felt some of the photos did not fit the brief.
In the Digital Vision category I was a bit disappointed to see that several people had 2 photos selected. This in itself is not bad and I congratulate anyone who manages to do this. But if the photo looks like it's done by the same photographer or artist, then I think only one photo would suffice.
That said, I prefer this selection as opposed to last years - and I made editor's choice last year!!
