    I came across some of the winning shots from this year's World Press Photo competition on the BBC news site, but the home site is:
    http://www.worldpressphoto.nl/

    Go and have a look. There are some fantastic shots both for this year and the winning shots for the last 50 years. I like the fact that even in the last five years mono still gets a look in.

    Cheers,

    Alan

    I'm not sure why, but I went to that site expecting to see brilliant sunsets and fantastic close-ups. Man was I wrong!!

    EPZ is a great site (I'm sure everyone agrees with that), but seeing those pictures on the WorldPressPhoto site makes use realize that there is a real world out there, and it doesn't consist of sunrises, flowers and blurred water.

    Erm, why would anyone go to a press photo site and expect to see sunsets and macros???

    I'll bet a lot of those photos wouldn't get many clicks on EPZ!!

    CB, wouldn't that depend on whether they had loads of mates here Wink
    (JOKE, before anyone jumps down my throat).

    Seriously, that site has some amazing, moving and thought provoking images, taken in some incredibly difficult and dangerous circumstances. Well worth a look.

    A world apart, I'm moved to tears by some of those images, even more so by the courage it took to obtain them.

    Seen this type of photography before, but I'm damned if I can find out how it is achieved.

    The Kashmir pic is probably my favourite and the guy in the "mental asylum" is probably the most sobering one there.
