Seeing as at least two of those pictured have had their photos published in the magazine, I'd say No. 6.

What's the prize? ;o)

Answer: #6. Most of the staff at England's Outdoor Photography and Black & White Photography magazines.

The first clue was BWPstaffsmall.jpg, the name of the image file, found in the URL if one looks at the image on a page by itself. The second clue is the book on the table in the foreground, _The Most Beautiful Country Towns of England_, which suggests a UK setting. The final clue was your Feb. 23 mention of your portfolio appearing in "Black & White Photography" on the merits of the images, a change from the appearance of photos as an element of your editorial work. This previous reference means you have a relationship with these folks.

I would say that, in principle, the given possibilities doesn't exclude themselves. Maybe excluding # 2 and #3.

Has to be staff members at OP (their UK tans gave them away!). I buy a copy of the magazine every so often to remind myself what a magazine is (mostly) like when it's unfettered with advertisements masquerading as "reviews." Try an issue and you'll discover what I mean; good reading, even if the places aren't in your back yard.

.......meaning what exactly?

As a UK daily follower of this site, I feel uneasy about this entry....the people in the pic are highly regarded by most of the UK photo community as a n excellent publishing team.

The JPEGs file name gives it away, Mike!

As a reader of Black & White Photography, I'd love to see the names to go with the faces.

These ladies are the staff of Black & White Photograpy, with Ailsa McWhinnie the third one from the right. I don't know if they are also Outdoor photography staff, but I'm sure about B&W P.

My apologizes if this comment appears several times. It is my first time and still learning.

Same desk type, walls, lighting etc.

Will there be prices for the correct answer?

It must be number six 'cause there are six of 'em in the picture. I also know because I flipped thru the mag at the news agent's when I was waiting for the train.
