OK, Six photographers over three weeks, and judged by Martin Parr amongst others. No Wildlife, Architecture, Macro, Landscapes. What, if anything, does this say?

Like the rest of the program the judges even got that wrong.

Don't agree with you there Andy, my wife and I thought the other lass's images were more professional and probably more saleable - just nothing very new or exciting.

I think they were in part rewarding the one who learn't most during the process and had a more "Raw" talent?

You could see she was going to win from a mile off - all that recovering alcoholic/tortured artist stuff is exactly the sort of stuff the arty crowd love Wink

The only thing worth taking pictures of is people?

I thought the Liz had the more powerful images and had indeed improved most during the competition. I was also a little disappointed with Lucinda's images as I think she had the ability to achieve much more.

Obviously an incredible experience for all 6 entrants and I'm sure they've each learnt an awful lot.

I thought the wrong person won, but I had a feeling she'd win from the first episode when she played to sob story card early on. Lucinda's photos were far better, and more easily saleable.

Raw talent ? - had she not known alcoholism in her life, I wonder what she'd have tackled ?

The follow up shots in the gallery in Newcastle of the feet of recoverd alcoholics - B*gger me, what complete Bo**ocks...

I thought the winners images were staged, amateur and obvious. The fact that she won after the panel of judges saw fit to view the shots she hadn't included in her set was a travesty. Her set, her choice - no way should that panel have viewed her other shots.

Having said all that, Lucinda's shots were technically well executed but as dull as dishwater..... and all after a degree in photography !

Personally I think this was yet another photography show that promised lots and delivered very little.

Dull and blinkered program thoughout, I think they looked at giving the unknown newbie a leg up aware that the other won would benefit a load from the publicity, which she did in the end.

Everybody wins, the worlds a better place and another trugid format passes

This is the first I've seen of this particular programme and wished I'd seen all the previous one because I don't think I could make a decision based on seeing just the one episode however, it did seem clear who would win and I wasn't surprised but what I did find it extraordinary that shots that were not included were viewed by the judges after submission..based on the original submission I wonder if they would have made her the winner?

The funny thing is that one of the guys got put off last week because he had left his best shots out. The judges told him this showed his picture editing skills weren't up to the mark. Go figure!

I think the final two were still much more of a risk than the judges thought, and so wanted to take every opportunity to limit the risk. However, in principle, still very much changing the rules to suit.
