  1. It is a very powerful shot; it got the worlds attention even though more than half of the world wouldn't know what HDR is anyway. It won the award and I think, quite fairly so! Did the first press photographer who put a filter on the end of his lens to maybe increase contrast get scrutinised? I don't know, but I do know that if I was standing next to Paul Hansen when he shot the image then I might have to right to criticise his decision, but I wasn't there I was in Afghanistan. The only people who were there were the people in the image and the photographer, the rest of the armchair critiques who watch wars from the comfort of their sofas with a nice cup of tea, were all at home surfing the internet for their latest piece of camera equipment for their ever growing collection of toys that will never be put to the use that Paul Hansen puts his gear through. So yes, he won fairly as far as I am concerned, were he not there then the world wouldn't know how these things look, as a jpeg. RAW or HDR image. I am happy for him and his sucess
