    Not sure I can find a favourite amongst so many powerful images.

    It's been quite a year indeed. I just scanned it quickly. I'll peruse it again more thoughtfully when I have time. Thanks for posting it!

    And today, we hear that a top journalist and photographer have died in attacks in Syria. These images can come at a high price as well as representing tough realities.

    The energy in this one just blows my mind every time I see that image.

    This does just an amazing job of exemplifying sport. Not only is it technically fantastic, but it really captures the experience of playing - much, much better than some full-lit, sterile looking shot of people with multi-million dollar contracts.

    This tells one hell of a story, and this is just a great shot.

    There's so much talent going on in that contest, it's invigorating.
