Challenge of Challenges: vote for the best shot of 2013

This is a very strange selection of 25 photos out of so many challenges. 25 is a very very small number to begin with. Also, some of the photos are only nice, but by no means in any way special. I would argue, there are thousands of pictures in the challenges, that a more artistic and would represent much better entries on a short list than some. And there are three portraits, three macros, but only one real landscape, no real architecture, no sport, … And finally, it is not clear by which criterion dpreview compiled this short list. Total number of votes, margin of winner against competition would at least honor the voting of so many participants. And I doubt, whether many of the 25 would have made into this list based on this.
