Niall Benvie - Sky and sea eagle, Scotland


This type of picture, which represents the experience of a wild creature rather than a detailed representation of its appearance, exemplifies why smart ‘phones are such a useless medium for viewing anything but “in your face” photography. Indeed, I fear that their widespread adoption for viewing web content, over laptops and tablets, will lead (if it hasn’t already done so) to the premature death of high quality photography e-books, before they really got going. Why people are so infatuated with looking a pictures no bigger than cigarette cards from 80 years ago beats me – and limits the audience for more subtle images.

    That's a good reflection. Smaller and smaller screens means only closeup images will be valid?
