@Luke if you don't think supporting so called "gay rights" (why their choice of partner advocates having some special "rights" I dunno, should be simple "human rights") isn't the PC thing to do,...
You really think good photography would win over political correctness? :P
Found the guy who can't shoot wide angle.
Did someone say NINJA?! :D
When I shoot events, unless it's really dark, I don't bother with a flash these days. Each to their own though.
JUst bounce off a wall. No need for fancy crap.
@DrewDrew07 ... umm you're basically saying what I was saying. I said the lighting in the train is dramatic (I didn't say the winning shot was dramatised) and the shot I linked to is WITHOUT the...
That's your opinion? Because everyone else has been just writing their opinions too. Photography is subjective, get over it.

Because I live in Hong Kong and I know exactly where this is taken. I feel the photo (though a good one) is really a cliched typical tourist photo. The artistic BS the guy spun about it really is...

I assume you meant png not ping. Anyway, jpeg isn't "better" than GIF of PNG, it has different uses. PNG can maintain an alpha channel (and is smaller than bitmaps), so it's better for certain...
Calm down there buddy, it'll be ok.

Well I'm obviously destined to be poor. I don't own a cat. :(
A Nat Geo guy told me he sold prints for $5000 for his popular stuff. So Peter Lik could get $5000-10,000 per photo pretty easily.
