May I correct myself:
Mark's photo has not been chosen as the photo of the year yet, but is ranked 3rd so far out of many great photos. Good luck Mark, but looks like that WTC ground zero photo has quite a lead... Big grin

Happy for the man that took the WTC flag raising photo. I have met him...a very nice guy! I think his will win Pulitzer.
Thanks for telling me about this.

Hi all

While Mark's shot is fantastic, I don't want to put a dampner on things but I voted for another picture.

All I will say is that I am an animal lover.

I thought for a long time at all the pictures and there was always one that stuck in my mind.

Merry Christmas to all.

That shoot was in newspapers here in Switzerland too. That was the first time I saw the picture! A great photo!

Congratulations!

That's awesome! How did they come across the photo?
I think it's a good antithesis to all the terrible images we've seen this year involving aircraft, so it gets my vote too!
