NG 50 Greatest Photographs

Amazon River Dolphins (Inia geoffrensis) Underwater, Brazil

I got some pretty cool news today: my image of Amazon River Dolphins that appeared in the June 2009 issue of National Geographic has been included in their "50 Greatest Photographs" app now available for the iPad.  (I don't have an iPad,  so I haven't seen it yet, but apparently, it looks beautiful). Preview here.  There is always a bit of hype to these sorts of things, but whatever you think of the concept, I'm still honored to be included.

For more about this photo, see my blog entry from last June here.

    Congrats, Kevin! How awesome to have an image honored like that. Interesting too to read in your previous post that this was one you had initially overlooked. It’s truly an amazing image though, with such an intimate pose and the faces of two others in the background. Amazing work — and I really enjoyed that article when it was published, they are such fascinating creatures!

    Thanks for your comments, Pat. Yeah, I’ll never get over the fact that I didn’t really notice that image when I did my initial edit. Like a lot of photographers, I often do an edit in a rush right after I come home from a trip. But first reactions, and first edits, should never be the final ones.

    Congratulations! I’d received an email from National Geographic regarding their ” 50 Greatest Photographs” app yesterday. Unfortunately I don’t have an iPad either but wondered if any of the photographers from OP were included. It is quite an honor.
