Just pretty pictures
At first glance you might say "nice painting" but in fact this image a photo, taken by an 18 year-old from Minnesota. At second glance you might say "that doesn't look like Minnesota" and you would be right - it's New Zealand. This is the grand prize winner in Smithsonian Magazine's annual photo contest.
This one's been photoshopped so it's in the "altered images" category - but still a heck of a shot. How do you get a lion to pose for you like that? Bacon on a string up there some where?
And this one from Lake Austin, Texas is amazingly unaltered.
