    The winning photo is very nice indeed.
    Some of the runner-up images are okay-ish, but overall the runner-up images do not look like contest material to me.
    I bet they were really glad when they received Andrew's photo, or this competition would've had a painful ending...

      If you haven't looked at the links, you may think he's being unnecessarily harsh.

      He's not.

      Apart from the winning entry, there's the usual collection of poorly-composed & poorly-lit random sub-happy-snap photos. Then there's the poorly-composed & poorly-lit random sub-happy-snap photos with crappy filters applied.

      That was my thought as well. The contest (which I'd never heard of until know) may well have "proved" that you can use a Rasberry Pi in photography, to the benefit (read:publicity) of the Pi... But the photographs themselves are generally much less than impressive in both technical and artistic quality.

      Honestly, the winning photo is bad too. It doesn't follow the horizon, thus is very distorted. And, there's a huge gap in the left. This only shows lack of patience in getting a good image. Thing is, I can get better photos with Hugin ( http://hugin.sourceforge.net/ [sourceforge.net] ) holding a camera by hand than this one on a rig. If on a rig, it's alignment should be bullet-proof.
  • The "RichShumaker" picture looks like a CGI'ed image. I could put off the ears as being plastic, but the face looks waxy and the eyes/hair don't seem real either.
