I agree. the photos are damn tragic. If this is the best photography from the convention, what then of policy?

Oh, I was wrong! The photo credits are there -- in dark gray type below the lower right corner of each picture. You really need Graphics 101. Now about the pictures. You have an army of the world's best photographers there, covering every facet of the event. Your editors can see all the pictures coming in, and they pick these? As the other commenter said below, "There are maybe 3 good ones in the bunch." Your editors have selected Fine Art, not photojournalism -- people shot from behind, people's heads cut off, poorly lit close-ups, lousy angles. How about #15 -- the plastic bag with the top half of Paul Ryan's head in it? Ugh. How about #22, those Amputee Veterans of America -- shot from behind, no faces, underexposed, lights reflected in three shiny helmets? The amputees have been amputated! Surely, there were better choices than this. Shame on you, editors!
Where are the photo credits? Are these pictures from AP? Reuters? Getty? The editors' friends? Republican PR flacks? Time, you should go back to Journalism 101.
Are you kidding me!!!! These are the best photo's you can get. I think its time you get a new photographer. There are maybe 3 good ones in the bunch.
Who had the better speech at the Republican National Convention? Ann Romney or Chris Christie Vote at Nationwidevotes.com
#5: GOP delegates become so aroused at the GOP convention that they mount each other in public while fellow delegates watch.
#3: Workers make a quick correction after being reminded that Romney is supposed to be the top of the ticket.
