this is one of those things that depends on way to many factors to have an actual, without question, winner. its is far to subjective to be that clear-cut. that much is true; however, if i had to pic a favorite that is actualy talented enuf to win in or to be on the leading edge of most of for mentoned factors, my pic would have to be Desert Driver . his work on Dubai is astonishing to say the least. his shots are of a quality few can match. getting every drop out of his equipment, DD seems to take pictures with a uncanny quality & clearity. i believe that his equipment could never be aproved apon if it were being used by any other photographer that posts here or anywhere on the web. . his night-shots are second to none imo. i often say to myself, " Nasa, if they ever send a man to mars, or even back to the moon, really needs to have this guy train the astronaughts or better yet, train Desert Driver." i coudnt be more serious about that staitment. by doing so, woud be treated to photos of those places that actualy look as close to real as humanly possible. thanks DD for all the great pictures and you have my vote for our top photographer. that is an impressive feat concidering the list of photographers that lurk this form. cheers.
PS: i am very sorry for what is most likely, aweful spelling and grammer.
