    Reuters' Best photos of the year 2012


    Reuters has published its list of best photographs taken in 2012.

    95 powerful images, many of them very sad and scary.

    Fascinating. I loved flicking through them all, stopping to read some captions, and then trying afterwards to remember some and see which ones proved 'sticky' in my mind. They were:

    Death Row cages
    Chinese women sunbathing with masks on
    Goat in taxi
    Puppy with corpse of mother
    Crow perched on skeleton in Ganges
    Israeli child settler shielding face from Palestinian lady with iPhone
    Gay man being beaten up in Ukraine.

    A lot of brilliant images but I did sometimes find myself questioning whether I could (or anyone should) have taken some of them. And boy, are there an awful lot of Canons, mostly 5DII, and boy are there hardly ANY Nikons!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks, Steen!

    I will still be studying them for a while. Some nicely thought out images and some nice captures as they happened. Looks like a good mix.

    I found the hint and link at bythom.com
    At his blog (PJ Followup, Dec 5, 2012) Thom Hogan says:

    "The large Canon bias is mostly because Reuters has tended to buy Canon product for thier staff.
    We are not looking at an un-biased sample in terms of brand.
    Plenty of photojournalists and other agencies have Nikon gear, it's just that Reuters is a Canon shop."




    And before that (in: What Pro PJ's Do, Dec 4, 2012) Thom Hogan wrote:

    "A photography buff on Reddit decided to take the Reuters best photographs of 2012 and analyze the EXIF information to look for commonalities.
    This was then compiled into graphics by another Reddit user, and then published as a
    news article by petapixel.com."
