Splash Photography is a very common type of photography in the commercial world and we see it around us all the time: in soft drink ads, as intro for cooking shows on TV or even in Cereal commercials. Here is a great collection of Splashing fruits – in water, cream or even beer – all found on Flickr. Also, make sure to watch the video to see how its done!
There is just something about portraits of people looking out the window – doesn’t matter if its in a building, train or car. Its something we do all the time, but never really pay attention to it. This is why seeing these awesome images capturing this quick-everyday-moment is really great. It makes you think. What are they seeing? What are they thinking of? are they happy? sad? maybe waiting for someone?.
11 years passed since that horrible day on September 11, 2001, where 2,996 people lost their lives and many more injured in the biggest terror attack in history. Since that horrifying day, every year on the night of 9/11 – NYC’s sky is being lit up by 2 beams of lights as a memorial for the twin towers. Check out the best photos of ‘Tribute In Lights‘ found on the net.
For the past 30 days NASA spammed the Internet with Panoramas or regular format pictures from Mars. Any news site I read features new photos from Curiosity every 2 days, 20% of the tweets on my feed are related to photos from Mars. Yeah, Its awesome to see photos from other planets around us, but to be honest? Earth photos are way cooler. Even the most boring spots on earth gives us super interesting shots. Check out these great finds from Flickr – and wake me up when we land on Saturn.
Check out these 20 images of few of the most interesting animals on the planet: from Sentinels to Eagles, owl and Egrets. Birds of all types flying, Eating or just posing to the camera. There is no doubt photographing birds (and getting awesome results) is one of the hardest things to do, you need a lot of luck, perfect location and sometimes also very expensive lenses and gear, so seeing these images makes me truly respect the photographers who took them. Check out the set of images found on Flickr and let us know which are your favorites!
When it comes to photography, it takes quite a bit to drop my jaw these days. It’s not that things are awesome, it’s that I’ve seen so much that it’s hard to stand out. Well, these photos taken with an electron microscope floored me. Due to their microscopic size, we rarely get to see these creatures in such striking detail. To be able to see the eyes of a caterpillar, the hairs on the back legs of a parasite, or the ridges on a worm just boggles the mind. [more]

Active volcano is something most of us will never see ‘face to face’, but the ones who do go next to one can get beautiful and unique images of this geological phenomena. Check out these amazing volcano images found on Flickr – some taken by pro photographers, some by amateurs – but all are truly great.
Thomas Hawk, San Francisco based photographer, took amazing photos during the 2012 Holi Festival of Colors in Spanish Fork, Utah earlier this year. The Hindu festival of Holi is being celebrated every year on March, and became a big hit in the photography community in the past few years because of the use of a lot of colored powder that makes it all look very magical.

Hailing from Italy, photographer Luca Pierro has created quite a dramatic project with his 100 Self Portraits series. Each photo certainly keeps to a style while being diverse and unique all at the same time. I rarely shoot low key, so when I see it done well it really inspires me to get out and do it myself. Hopefully Luca’s work will inspire you to try something new as well. Enjoy! [more]
