    I suggest adding travel. While I understand that travel is really a combination of documentary and landscape, often with portions of portraiture, wildelife, and documentary, I think it's different enough to merit its own spot (especially if Scientific/Astro gets one). This fact is all the more relevent considering that m4/3's biggest strength (in this humble travel photographer's opinion) is in travel, where the light weight makes it better than many larger formats. My two cents!

    Hmm, choosing one is difficult. Will decide and vote later on :smile:.

    If it had not been photojournalism before, I would have had to choose that after seeing the great documentary film War Photographer about James Nachtwey yesterday.

    Not a lot of love for fashion/commercial photography here, huh?

    That's too bad.

    Fashion and Glamour should not be combined. Neither should product and commercial.

    I simply love hot chicks, hence my (at the moment) "Fashion/Glamour" vote :D

    In all honesty I couldn't narrow it down to one, or even a few...

    I admire good photography.
