Digital Camera Photographer of the Year 2009 Shortlist

Philosopher – Christian Oeser, Austria

Sorting through over 100,000 entries, the judges from The Digital Camera Photographer of the Year competition had a tough task at hand. How do you select the most captivating and creative pictures from such a large pool? Split into 10 categories including People and Portraits, Landscapes, World in Motion, Digital Vision and more, the photos had to “capture a powerful sense of place” and “be original and striking.” The judges were looking for “images with impact” that “revealed the spirit of the character.” They wanted to feel that moment – where light, color and composition came together perfectly.

The editors skillfully pared down their list and came up with the top images that now appear on PhotoRadar. Here, I’ve selected thirty of my favorites.
