    Have to say, I find these 'best images', 'most striking images', 'most powerful images' pieces a bit hit and miss. This one was mostly miss for me.

    Thanks for sharing the link - seems you can't be anywhere without being 'snapped' these days.

    A bit US centric, which is okay but not exactly what I'd expect under such a generic headline.

    I rekon that they cater for all tastes - if I can put it like that - they do display what a "powerful" world there is - in many different ways

    Certainly an interesting collection. Except the last one they are all about human tragedies, disasters, losses. Can something positive not be as powerful - just wondering?

    Retow,

    The media tends to focus on the negative. Much of these pictures look journalistic in nature.

    What, no photos of squirrels? Clearly an incomplete list.
