    If anyone hangs out for the World Press Photo Awards - they're out for 2013 -

    World Press Photo

    I think 'The Crescent' may be my favourite but 'Joy At The End of the Run' & 'El Salvador Gangs' are close second(s).

    And as usual I'm in awe of the cojones required to get some of the war reportage and nature close-ups (that whale shark looks so close a sense of perspective and scale is lost).

    A few shots seem a little 'blah' this year conmpared to previous entries IMHO.

    Shocking images as usual!


    But what really caught my eye is the amount of young photographers! A lot under 30 yrs old!

    Yes - they almost need a 'Faces of Death' category at this rate.

    The exhibition in person is always a lottory, go the good way round (gory stuff first) or the bad way round (see the gory stuff last).

    Much wailing and gnashing of teeth at the DPReview forums about the HDR/Overprocessed nature of some of the winners rather than the composition or content of the images themselves.

    I checked a few samples and didn't see any m4/3 stuff unfortunately. Maybe next time.
