I took an informal poll of the pictures. Most agreed that cropping out the sky was a good idea. However, brightening the image washed out some of the details and did not made the lighthouse look less pleasing.

Yes, and I suspect that the monitor settings have something to do with it too...btw, I meant to say "as pleasing" rather than "less pleasing"

The top prize for Photo of the Year went to an image taken in Liberia by British photographer and Red Cross volunteer, Jonathan Banks. The shot was captured back in 2008 on the outskirts of Monrovia during a multi-day festival patrolled by West African peacekeepers.

“This was a child who had grown up in war, and had good reason to be scared of soldiers and their guns,” says Banks. “He wanted to get his ball back, but his eyes were fixed on the soldier. This all happened in the blink of an eye and resulted in this picture, which seems to represent the precariousness of peace, as seen through the eyes of a young child with little understanding of the greater dynamics at play.”

Fun With Symmetry

I got some interesting photos and hopefully made them more interesting through mirroring and cropping.

This is a very nice photo. It has great depth of field and seems to be HDR. I can't put my finger on it, but there is something very appealing about it.

I have it somewhere on disk. Let me know if you don't manage to download it, and I'll see if I can mail it to you.

It's a very good series. I also liked Dark Matter - too bad they cut it short, and in the process ruined it so they can close it ahead of schedule.
