"A year ago, Michael Chrisman placed a pinhole camera in Toronto’s Port Lands and aimed it — as best one can aim such a camera — at the city skyline.
For 365 straight days and nights, light has crept through the pinhole, slowly building an exposure on a piece of photosensitive paper."

Tilt-shift is still cool.
And 3-D is still cool.
3D effects can be achieved by simulating a tilt-shift style - essentially by selectively adjusting an image's blurriness and color saturation.
ArtCyclopedia has applied these techniques to some of Van Gogh's paintings with amazing results.
Chris McVeigh has a lot of fun and funny photos. There is something about the composition and color that makes them more compelling than simple snapshots of toys and animals.
"Lightning bolts appear above and around the Chaiten volcano as seen from Chana, some 30 kms (19 miles) north of the volcano, as it began its first eruption in thousands of years, in southern Chile May 2, 2008. Cases of electrical storms breaking out directly above erupting volcanoes are well documented, although scientists differ on what causes them. Picture taken May 2, 2008. (Carlos Gutierrez)"
