The Taylor Swift photo is IMHO subpar compared to the rest.

Benicio Murray's picture

 suits the rest of her career then.

And the photographers are........?
C'mon guys. We get a raw deal as it is with our work being stolen from all over the net. At least give us credit where credit is due.
I thought you were about photographers and photography not just filling space and getting page hits.
Don't be lazy, please may I request you post the names of the photographers with their images.
Many thanks.

 far too often Fstoppers have been lazy with attributions. It's not good enough!

Hey man, you were right. It was an oversight on our part :)

Jens Marklund's picture

Feels like Gaga's waist in the first one is way over processed. 

Zack Williamson's picture

I mean, it's not a big deal, but a [NSFW] tag would be nice in this title. I don't think my company would be too upset about artistic nudes but can't speak for others...
