My major concern with the Sony Award is plagiarism, especially the Australian Waterpolo Team pose during an Australian 2012 Olympic Games portrait session. This image smacks of [Australian photographer] Max Dupain's work at Bondi decades ago. There are some very good images worthy of attention. The surrealist depiction of The Matterhorn is not a product of Photoshop, but a product of chance and preparedness. In the right conditions this is as real as an aurora at that altitude and relatively easy to photograph. A high ISO (4000-6000) and 30 second Tv is all that is needed, and many alpinists come away with much the same image.
