Stunning images. If I may offer a more reputable source though to steer fellow Dyxummers to though, try here instead...

Why is the Dutch site of the Business Insider a "more reputable source" then the Daily Mail? It might not be your newspaper, but that doesn't mean it isn't reputable.

Edit: come to think of it, why is business insider running this at all? The Daily Mail is a long established newspaper, the business insider is a.... well, what is it? The name implies a business oriented website, not general news. More sites that run the story:
CNN
The Telegraph
Evening Standard
The Atlantic
You decide which one is the most reputable for photographic subjects.....

I saw these first on the DM webpage and agree - they are a particularly stunning series of images this year. The DM were also at pains to point out just how many of the finalists were amateurs, which goes against the trend of a good many competitions these days.

I hope to go along to Somerset House and have a look at these when I have some time; if I'm the first I will provide some further feedback!

best regards, Neil.

Addy, maybe Tricky is just referring to a reputable source: Wikipedia

Does that infer that the Sony Awards this year are 'Sensational'? Really must get along this time if that's the case!

Best regards, Neil.

To be named unreliable by what we consider one of the most unreliable sources....

Honestly, how about starting a thread with: not just an url (which is allowed on this forum, but I wish it wasn't), and going for the original source? (yet, damn is the official website annoying to navigate...).

Internationaly, the daily mail is mostly regarded as junk news. But the present article isn't "news", it's "PR" or "advertisement".


nanbytes: while wikipedia isn't perfect, calling it unreliable doesn't feel substanciated if it's based on some anecdotal errors or successful trolls in the website's content.

It one of the places we were told not reference as a source at University (for projects, thesis, project reports etc). That applies at work, phd, research also. (Reason being any one could edit wikipedia inc. person referencing it!) While many times its a good starting point, its not a valid reference. Many times they do provide credible references which you can use yourself.

I think there was an assumption when Wikipedia first came to be that it would be unreliable, but people are quite fastidious in updating and keeping it accurate... The fact that it is such a source of reliable information is an unexpected nod towards the positive side of human nature... However reliable it is, you still cant reference as it changes...

Anyhow, we should be taking about the photographs rather than the media.

Stunning stuff!

I'm very happy about SWPA 2017 because friend of mine Alexander Vinogradov won in Open category Portraits with this shot:
A99+Samyang 85/1.4
