Ive seen some better ones here on EPZ...
especially the snakes. Angi Nelson has MUCH better snake shots imo!

the giraffe, well a PAS at a safari park will be a very similar result...
the penguins are out of focus....

That's what I see. I was kind of confused when I first looked at them. Imo, they may not be chosen for their IQ, but more for the unusual subject matter?

The snakes are wild and living in the wild that makes things alot harder. I do agree there is better images on epz at times.

I have just subscribed to National geographic Magazine (special offer) as I have always been impressed by the photos. The latest issue for example has some spectacular shots of Antarctica.

If you look at the picture credits in the link you posted you will see there is a mixture of sources - or at least there seems to be. The bear shot, for example is Mark Emery / NGT, while the first snake shot seems to be from a video. You can't expect the same level of technical finish if it's taken from a video. I'd say the the NG still images in the magazine are superb. The TV channel I don't know about as I've never seen it, but if still images are taken from video they almost certainly won't be as good as original camera stills.

I agree, they seem to be chosen from various sources for their subject matter, rather than out and out technical quality..IMO most of the examples are effective in their way...

I agree wholeheartedly, I've been viewing them since I was a child. Incidentally, did you know that you can get every copy of National Geographic ever issued, including all the photos, on DVD from their online store. It's listed in their Christmas catalogue for a reduced price.Smile
