    Just a problem...you`d have to be pretty high up the food chain for this kind of shot + their editorial would have paid big bucks for the spot. So if you were down there with everybody else...what would you do so that the editor chooses your picture.

    If you're a lowly tabloid photographer, the editor will probably expect you to sneak into private residences or beaches, chase after cars, stalk celebrities till they threaten to smash your face in, etc. How else are you going to noticed if you won't make the effort.

    I'm counting the number of horizontal vs portrait framing...

    And there's this guy (no, actually two guys) who is using someone's shoulder as a make-shift support for his lens...

    Someone has an omni-bounce on the flash...
