Weird optical illusion in the 2nd photo as you're scrolling down the page.  Kind of looks like the houses are zooming out of the screen.

#6 looks more like a painting than a photograph, to me.  Pretty impressive.

I noticed that, thought I had hit something that turned my scroll wheel into a zoom setting.

Same here.  Took me a couple times scrolling up and down to shake the illusion.

It's a nice photo, but I can't help but think somebody did more than a little tweaking with After Effects.

All those houses with no lawns to yell at people to get off of.

Would suck to live in that country.

yeah weird, didn't notice it at first with autoscroll.

I like #15 (the polar bear at Svalbard), but I really think it would be better with a landscape orientation. A bit too much of the photo is taken up by featureless sky, and not particularly effectively, IMHO.

Someone really ought to PS a looping animated gif.

An awful lot of those were snapshots of depressing, destitute life in impoverished third world countries. Great for telling a chosen narrative, but not that interesting as photography.

An awful lot of music is about depressing, destitute life among impoverished people. Great for telling a chosen narrative, but not interesting as music like Justin Bieber.

I like how they have that straight line down the middle towards the playground... and then BAM, solid four-family house blocking your path. Kind of like life, I guess.

#16 and #32.  I can't chose, both are awesome photos and look like they haven't been retouched.

#16 because it does elements (color, line, perspective) well
#32 the quintessence of a story photo.

3 and 6. Amazing. They barely even look real.

So awards to see which photographer can "touch up" their photos the best?

Yeah, well you had the option to get a non-invasive ultra sound screening (followed by an amniotic fluid assay to be sure) for free and you just went ahead and didn't give a f*ck, didn't you?
Thanks for costing us a shiatload of money, and if you have other kids please realize, that you are gravely robbing them of needed attention by getting a special needs child when you had all the possibilities to avoid it.

God damn ruiners of western civilization... and you know what, kids with Down's are often depressed, because even if they are dumb, they're still smart enough to know they different. Had an inlaw who worked with people woth Down's and she commented, that a lot of them end up with alcoholism due to depressions.

F*ck! Arse!

Yeah but if that's just a trumpet festival, imagine what the drinking festivals must be like.

This looks like a panel from a graphic novel by the same guy who did 300...

Curious: i see faces in the clouds in #18.


Using the rider to represent 12:00, at 11:00 I see ET looking slightly to his left.  And near 1:00, I see an open umbrella.

Even no grass in the "playground"!
