On a related note: did anyone else notice that a lot of these pictures where not 100% sharp, or motion blurry?

It's almost like those things don't matter when you have a good photograph!

Just throwing it out there...

I agree with you Citruspers. But considering what is going on around the photographer and how close he gets to the action he is doing very well. :D

That is true for any image, artistic blur can actually add to an image, I think.

In this very interesting BJP article, Magnum photographer Peter van Agtmael explains why he couldn't get sharp shots all the time, why it wasn't a priority and how he got beat up by protesters:
