Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017-18

Visited this today at the Natural History Museum in London: well up to its usual stunning standard in my humble opinion. They've maintained the trend in recent years seemingly to favour pictorial and atmospheric images over the purely natural history record shot, and it's all the better for that.

http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit/exhibitio...e-year-53.html

I'm always amused by the Young Photographer awards - a few this year do look genuinely as though they are mostly the work of the youngster who pressed the shutter release, but as usual there are many who are clearly shooting with Dad's recently cast-off gear (like Canon 5D mk2s), and just how many 15 year olds can handle and afford a Canon 500mm f4???

I did my usual casual reckoning of DSLR vs. mirrorless, and full-frame vs crop/m4/3/smaller cameras. So, one Nikon V1; a Fuji X100 and an XT-1; one Leica S (typ 007); one Sony A7R and two A7Rii; a handful of crop DSLRs, out of 100 exhibited images. Of course we don't know how many of the 48000 submitted images weren't taken on full-frame Canikons!

Ah to be young again with all that 'throw off kit' at the kiddies disposal. Nothing like a Brownie 127 and a Cold Shower to get them back into perspective
