This month’s theme has been photography, and it could easily have been subtitled: “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” We’ve shown you the Bad and the Ugly; now it’s time to show you the Good.
The fact is, thousands of photographers contribute to the multitude of stock photo libraries; millions of people are posting their stuff online — and as with any field, they run the gamut of skill, talent, and relative sanity. So you get the weird and arcane; the tired and banal. You also get the breathtaking.
If the last few Lunch Meats gave you a bad taste in your mouth, consider this a palate cleanser.
Please note that Rigney Graphics and staff have no particular affiliation with any of the artists or organizations shown here. We just admire their work. From a distance. In a totally non-creepy way.
The following is a tiny sampling of winners of the annual National Geographic photo contest:
It’s not all nature shots, either. As we mentioned before, Photoshop (as well as various camera tricks) can be skillfully applied to create striking, artistic images.
Or just impeccable timing (and a sense of humor).
(Thanks also to 123 Inspiration for aggregating these and many other amazing artists.)
