    I don't like those winner's ones much.
    It reminds me of the way I don't like Walter Sickert paintings.

    I wouldn't buy those images

    Mostly I don't like, admire, respect or aspire to to create images like these 'winners'.

    I think the ants are amazing and I'm outraged at the thought of the 22yr old with her eyes cut out, a victim of rape.

    But there is not a one of them that I'd pay money for and hang on my wall, or even download and want to use as a computer wallpaper. Just not my idea of great photography.

    Obviously Sony will have engaged the services of world class judges but I just don't see in these images what they were impressed with.
