I can't shift that image of the little girl and the vulture.


I just looked at that picture, I've now got tears streaming down my face. Heartbreaking.

It's not.

Some really, really astonishing stuff on there.

The Kevin Carter picture is one of the most harrowing things I've ever seen, though.

Bobatim, when that picture started loading I immediately thought those Aliens were actually novelty penis shaped salt and pepper shakers.

The white glow around the Devil's Tower makes me think this has been photoshopped from different exposures of the same image, but it's still a pretty impressive shot regardless

I'm not going to post any images here for reasons of taste but the 9/11 images as shown in the up-thread link and all the others available online, particularly the really well made ones by the professional photographers and cameramen that resemble genuine war correspondence, would probably constitute what the OP was getting at. I don't mean WOW in a good way but WOW as in "holy shit" you get me? Even 10 years later they still have a kind of raw and mesmerising power to them. Two massive buildings on fire, a city in chaos, people jumping out of windows, sirens going off everywhere. You just imagine what it would've been like to be there on the day, experiencing the confusion and panic on the streets and above all being completely captivated by the horror unfolding before you and live on tv to millions. I guess its kind of like the car crash situation, you know you should stare but you cant help your morbid fascination. This was like a car crash x1000.

Yeah, he's real and to add to the Wow he lost a leg in a shark attack.Brutus the three legged croc.Thanks to that photo and all the associated telly coverage some people want to stop the boat tours and feeding.
There was a clip of the daily feeding on Telly and they were saying there's another bigger croc they feed sometimes apparently.

Pretty much all images from the Titanic wreck manage to wow me and send a chill down my spine in equal measure, but none more than these two.

The site I found this pic on unfortunately had no details of where it was taken or who took it.



A couple of fine examples of tilt/shift photography - more here,http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2008/11/16/beautiful-examples-of-tilt-shift-photography/

I really like the Manhattenhenge shot - apparantly this happens to any city with a grid-layout.

so in theory Milton Keynes should also get the same phenomenon.



I doubt that it would be as impressive though
