  1. This link points to the BBC news page for World press photo award 2004

    It has some pretty amazing, dramatic and sad pictures, reminds me that there surely are much more important things then taking the pictures, so many poeple where touched by tragic events last year.

    Andreas :


    Some sobering good material here.

    And also to the point, some of these were selected despite what would be "obvious" OOF, or blown highlights, or a scad of other items nitpicked to death in some venues. Why choose these shots then ? Because they capture a moment with an intent of crystalline clarity, regardless of the technical issues of the shot, but a moment of importance.

    Thanks for posting the link. I find a lot to learn from in these images.

    Thanks for helping to expand our horizons Andreas. Excellent link to some powerful shots.

    Another cogent comment John.

    Regards to you both,
