    I agree and I can see why the image above won in 2009. Am I right in thinking it was done with a TS lens if not selectively blurred PP.

    Although the photographs are wonderful I found myself getting a bit annoyed the more I saw of the show. There is a lot wrong in this world and it is a worthwhile endeavour to educate people. I do have a slight problem when it is made portrayed in an overly beautified way for enjoyment out of context. It seemed too many of the images were this way inclined. I tend to see it as capitalising on other peoples truma and tribulations.

    I think it's good that the images provoke an emotional reaction - to me, that's the point

    Wonderful images. I read Paul's comment before viewing them. Even so, they didn't strike me as exploitative.
