World Press Photo winners


Recommended Posts

Some superb photos here as you would imagine. My winner is the bike crash. I can't even imagine riding at 80km/h on the flat and I don't want to imagine how it hurt half a second after this image was taken. Great shot though, sharp and the moment perfectly captured (though I expect he was shooting at 8 or 10 frames per second). It reminds me of the ugly crash by Abdoujaparov on the Champs D'Élysées in 1991.

Yea I saw the cycling one and thought so too. I think cycling can be a great sport for photography....with a high frame rate!!
