(Really) Stunning Pictures and Photos

Advertisement

Photography is a very powerful medium and a very difficult craft. Excellent photos don’t only display some facts — they tell stories, awake feelings and manage to share with the audience the emotions a photographer experienced when clicking the shot button. Taking excellent pictures is damn hard as you need to find a perfect perspective and consider the perfect timing. To achieve brilliant photography you need practice and patience. However, it is worth it: the results can be truly stunning.

Below you’ll find 50 brilliant photos and stunning pictures — some pictures tell stories, some are incredibly beautiful, some are funny and some are very sad.

All pictures are copyright of their respective owners. Please explore the further work of the photographers by browsing through their work. We’ve tried to cover different themes so that everybody will find something interesting and spectacular for himself / herself. All screenshots are linked und lead to the pages from which they’ve been taken.

The Ball is Coming!5
Analogue shot with Seagull 6×6 (Chinese clone of Rolleiflex), made in 1983. “The gulfball is suspended on a fishing line in front of the camera. It was a stormy day. So I had to shoot 5 or 6 films for getting one image with the ball in the center position AND a light reflection on the golf club.”

    What’s happened to Smashing Magazine? Usually your posts are informative and well-written, the commentary provided on this post is banal. Most of it should just be alt text as it’s a just say-what-you-see. Bring back the posts with purpose!

  16. 16

    I really love “Yaw? Weeeee”, “Family of bugs” and “Sea gull on a sign” :D They are great.

    The rest of the collection is also brilliant, but these are my favorites.

  17. 17

    Some of these have got to be the best photographs, I have ever seen. Ever!

    @Laura: thank you for your comment. We are not sure that these photographs need to be described any further. However, we’ll keep your remark in mind for the future posts.

  20. 20

    Smashing is well out of its area of expertise here. Amongst other poor images are pictures of cats and dogs FGS. Get back on track hey? Or get some real photo experts on the team. Leave this sort of thing for the Flickr groups who know what they are talking about.

  21. 21

    Stunning indeed. Bird on bird sign is one in a million.

    @all commenters: please notice: this post wasn’t supposed to showcase the best works of professional photographers – that is a different area we’ll maybe cover in the future. The intention of this post was different – to showcase some interesting and unusual pictures taken in real life.

  30. 30

    gr8 work man ……… awesome pic’s

  31. 31

    OMG….say no more….

  32. 32

    I’m not really sure about this post, some of the images are great but it’s really let down by the animal portraits (I mean how many more cute dog shots does the world need?) and a few poor quality shots – the cloud formation on the Mount Fuji shot is amazing, but is it really a good photograph?
    For me photography is all about the light, some shots here demonstrate that perfectly (autumn in red, a girl portrait), but some others just look flat. No offence intended, just my opinion

  33. 33

    There’re some nice photos there.. and of course, there’s nothing wrong with some nice photos.. But.. Personally I just expect more from this site – commentary, explanation – to learn or find out about something new – or have a trend or development pointed out where it wasn’t immediately obvious. I could have done without the kittens and puppies myself.. Which just goes to show that a list of photos assembled because they’re, well, nice, is pretty subjective – while a list of images showcasing some technique or trend has an undeniable value as something to learn from or be inspired by.
    My two cents.

    I knew the 11th picture before and indeed it is very beautiful. As of course are the other pictures.

  35. 35

    I’m pretty sure that picture of the seagull was photoshopped. The outline of the seagull on the sign matches the silhouette on the sign perfectly, and the texture of the paint in the silhouette doesn’t match the texture of the paint outside the silhouette.

    But boy, wouldn’t it be funny if it were real?

  36. 36

    Some nice photos here, but the seagull on the sign is a Photoshop job. Check out the silhouette of the gull and then the one on the sign beneath it.

  37. 37

    Incredibly tasteless and overloaded with post-edit color tweaking, making it completely lifeless. You guyz like cheap poretretists on the street or Andy Warhol? Please decide.
    Stunning – waves, heights, cats and dogs? Those things appearing in your blog mark you as “first time in the internet” guy. Smashing? First time I see such a useless thread on this high-rated blog.

  38. 38

    Just see number 40 photo make me dizzy, the other pictures instead feelings of beauty, peace, understanding, excellent list

  39. 39

    The title says it all. Thanks for sharing. I’ve linked to my blog.

    wow! i added this to my site too

    unreal. people are so damn creative. i love it. thanks for sharing this. ill link it up on my blog

  42. 42

    I really liked the tree from the picture 5 and the leap of faith of picture 9.
    Well, actually I liked them all xD

  43. 43

    great post. these photoes really wake me up some fantastic mind for my website disign!!

    Inspirations , always come from the “different perspective” u think from.

    as Swimming pool and Yaw! weeeeeee !! =)

  44. 44

    quite boring, visual yes, but boring.
    sorry.

  45. 45

    Seriously… this post reminds me of those crappy emails that go around. Bird on a sign is obviously fake. The other photos aren’t that great. And theres no intelligent discussion as to why you guys think these are great. This is evidently a filler post. I await the next “real” post!

    Impressive collection of images. I have the Northern Lights seen from space as my desktop, i may have a few other options now.

    It doesn’t matter if they are all real or who took them, if you appreciate interesting images, good photography and creative digital enhancement, then it’s a great compilation.

  47. 47

    Those who criticize: you obviously don’t read the comments or have REALLY no idea about photography. Most of these pictures are indeed stunning, alhough it’s of course always quite subjective. Could you provide some links to pictures which you think are stunning! I’d like to see them!

  48. 48

    Sure, I could – and then you’d see my own personal taste in photos.. Which may or may not do nothing for you. That’s really the point. There’s not a lot here but some photos someone likes – there’s nothing wrong with them – some are great… But what’s the point? These might inspire some people, but certainly not everyone. On the other hand, a post about techniques used to make certain types of photos would be useful independent of what you think of the end product – since you can learn from that, experiment with it, get something other than an idea of someone else’s taste.

    Even a post about something more specific than photos in general would be useful – photos taken at night, or portraits, or something – something to make a list like this a little more meaningful.

    Great selection, great photographs ;)

    Very well

  51. 51

    Some amazing photos for sure but a lot of them look downright Phony – i’d be curious to know how many came outta the Camera like that without being Pshopped to the nth Degree*

    ;)) Peace*

  52. 52

    thank god and thanks to photographers for their wonderful and beautiful ARTS!

    The cat’s eyes in #27 have also been photoshopped … :-/

    @Fraoukwel: no, the eyes haven’t been Photoshopped. Please take a look at the source.

  55. 55

    Love the photos, most of them amazingly creative.
    I love the idea of the pool photo as if she was sitting against a very calm waterfall, I wanted to do a very quick manipulation on it, so she looked less stressed holding herself up.

    there are really amazing pictures here…

    for photoshop and post production haters: every picture is (post) produced… every single picture is worked on from the setting, to the composition, to the exposure, to the film development, to the printing, to retouching; even before photoshop, it was always like that.

    photoshop is just a digital tool that does basically the same thing people used to do (and still do, actually) with film and paper prints, just faster and less complicated (or is it?).

    so just stop saying “that color is fake”, or “this is not professional stuff”, or “there’s nothing to learn with that”.. you’re wrong and you’re being mean, rude and hypocrite. there’s always something to learn, even if the picture was post produced (which only means it was still worked on after the exposure, and they ALL are), even if it doesn’t look great, even if the technique wasn’t the best…

    just stop complaining and start contemplating people’s work. please!

    the seagull one is fake, you can tell. like, really it is

  62. 62

    Sorry, but some of those are done by professional photographers. Sea in the Sea and Swimming Pool are pieces I’ve seen on the artists’ websites. You really should credit them.

  63. 63

    I can’t recall the name of the artist responsible for #18, but photo you call “Sea in a Sea” (#13) is from Julianne Swartz’ Placement series.

    So much for “real life” snapshots.

  64. 64

    I agree that some of the shots are truly amazing and beautiful, but the ones that are obviously put together in photoshop to me aren’t as impressive (and they are pretty easy to pick out)

    You could easily hone this down to 20 photos that are truly stunning

  69. 69

    Sorry to post again, but I have to elaborate. The editors should note that this post is the first time I have been sorely disappointed in Smashing for over a year. Sometimes articles don’r appeal “to me”, but they are still quality articles. This is just way off-topic, poorly researched, commented and presented. Only if you packaged these into an email, put my aunties address on it and mailed it to me could I be more let down. Very, very poor. In fact a waste of my time, which is worse.

  70. 70

    Browse through my Flickr favs …you’ll get better photos than this…

    my id: “cooldeep…”

  71. 71

    I liked most of the photos, but the comment “Mt Fuji […] The photo is taken in Japan” was painfully inane.

  72. 72

    These shots are ones that a programmer would have been impressed with a couple of years ago! I love smashing mag but I have to say two turkeys in a row! Get the design glasses back on…

  73. 73

    I think the photos are pretty. But I miss a lot artistic ideas in the expression, originality and statement.

  74. 74

    Truly stunning pictures with great clarity and given importance to every single detail of the picture.

  75. 75

    Amazzzzing pics…. Just one word to describe them… WOW!!!

    I hate these persons

  93. 93

    I totally agree with some of the previous user comments. The only image worthwhile viewing is the fourth image. This post was just a filler, especially with those animal images.

    I still love smashing magazine though so please bring back good quality content.

  94. 94

    awesome pictures,really enjoyed m.

  95. 95

    I really think the photo of the cockfight should not have been posted. There is nothing stunning about it. It’s a shame people still hold cockfights, and the only reason to post such a photo would be to draw people’s attention to this, to make them realize this really is bad. But instead, you post this photo between some really great (and some less interesting, but that’s my opinion…) photos without a word about the cruelty behind it.

    my 2 cents, I still really like smashing magazine :-)

  96. 96

    how are these sad?

  97. 97

    Not too bad, but I also could have gone without seeing the cockfight photo. just the mere posting if it in any context to me is glorifying a despicable act.

  98. 98

    some r really nice; some r scary: hope, photobirds on photowaves :)

    As a photographer, I love posts like this. From a design vs. bandwidth standpoint I am encourage that you included so many images in your post. I tend to stay away from including more than 5 images that size. I’m probably living in a time years ago before high speed internet was around.

    I might start listing my individual portfolio pages` with the full size images in line. I’m just thinking.

    Great photography and very inspiring. The world is an amazing place and it’s the photographer’s job to interpret and express it.

  106. 106

    @Sylvia
    The image of the cockfight I think is a truly amazing image. The subject matter may be morally reprehensible, but sometimes photographers and photo editors must side on presenting truth and reality. Think of the images that real combat / war photographers present to us. Think of the images burned into our minds from the holocaust. Evocative, powerful, and instructive.

    Those of you that think you are all high and mighty and come here and slam this post with your demeaning comments and think you know all there is to know about photography need to get off your computers and go back to school and take a pre-photography 101 class. You need to go find out what real photography is all about. It’s not about perfect this or perfect that or something being completely free of post camera tricks. It’s what’s in the photographers eye and it’s what the photographers brain interprets as that image in the eye as it should be on paper and if that image on paper is a quality representation of what the photographer was attempting to convey then who are you to tell us or the photographer that these images on this post are worthless dribble? Start all over with your photography education my friends and dump those expensive fancy overpriced digital cameras that you think make you great photographers. Go build your own little darkroom and spend about five years making images with a homemade shoe box pin hole camera. Then bring your results here and let US critique them. Until then learn to be nice and offer positive criticism. I for one find many of these images quite stunning and I have been studying photography and taking pictures for forty years. I have many awards for pictures much less stunning an impressive than most of these. Kudos to you smashing for rising above those that choose to be close minded and view the world with blinders on.

  116. 116

    Is it just me, or is “Seagull on a Sign” a fake? The bird on the sign and the bird on top of the sign have the EXACT SAME OUTLINE. That’d be just shy of impossible, if not completely impossible.

    What do you lamers always say “photoshop”?? You’re idiots.

  120. 120

    Amazing photos. The caption of photo number 3 is inaccurate. The sky is not “reflected,” simply, the drop acts as a simple lens, inverting the image. Great work thought!

  121. 121

    no puedo dejar de admirarme con estas fotografías, esto es arte puro… gracias!

  122. 122

    im pretty sure the bird one is fake. the outlines are identical.

    still rad though.

  123. 123

    You’re right, the one with the seagull is a photoshop. Why would there be a no seagulls sign? Do they really expect them to obey? Unless it means, ‘don’t feed the seagulls’. In any case, it’s fake, because the silohuette is exactly the same.

    This picture is as old as the internet.

  124. 124

    Oh my gosh, the bubble one was so pretty, … I also really liked the water droplet and the glitter.

    these photographs are awesome, but the short description/comment on them is irritating. before i can see the photograph, i’m confronted by someone else’s opinion on it. it doesnt allow me to appreciate the photo or form my own opinion on it. instead of putting it before the photograph, you could put it afterwards with a couple of linebreaks in between, or better still, put it as an alternate text so that a mouseover brings it up.
    i hope you’ll keep this in mind in future posts.

  131. 131

  134. 134

    Very nice photos!
    Veoma lepe slike!

  135. 135

    Whether these were done by “artsists” or “amateurs” where are the photocredits? Have you asked permission from the photographers to make money from their work in this way? This type of image rip-off has become all too common – I am curious how you justify it?

  136. 136

    I agree with the previous post by Red Cedar. How do you justify displaying people’s without asking permission from the photographers?

  137. 137

    Although I love most of the pictures displayed, I don’t like them all. Not all of them are as good as I expect them to be at Smashing Magazines. “Cat and deer”, “Leap of Faith” and “Photograph Taken at the Exact Right Time” are funny, and I would be very proud if they were my vacation pictures, but great timing doesn’t make a picture great. And we’ve seen the water drops falling a thousand times before. Furthermore, I agree with Red Cedar and jovianjokerjoe. This is not a bad post, its a bad Smashing Magazine post. It’s not as good as others at Smashing Magazine, and that’s a shame. I hope next posts will be as good as the ones before this one.

  145. 145

    This is at Scott, who seems to dislike critics from non-photo-veterans. Scott, our (speaking for those who feel just as attacked by you as I do) lack of experience with photography, doesn’t make us incapable of judging an image. Although we probably won’t be able to explain why we feel about a picture as we do, as you could, we still feel something when we look at it. And that is, I think, the essence of a good photo. Let me explain.

    I don’t believe photography is about “what’s in the photographers eye and what the photographers brain interprets as that image in the eye as it should be on paper and if that image on paper is a quality representation of what the photographer was attempting to convey then who are we and so on“. Because art (photography is art, I’m sure you agree) is about feelings. Art creates feelings, feelings create art. Art creates fashion, fashion creates feelings, feelings creates art.

    What a photographer sees, what image he creates in his head, if this image is formed by the artists feeling, and how successful he is in enrapturing that feeling in his final picture (with or without photoshop), will in the end determine if the result is a photo, or a snapshot. And whoever you are, experienced or not, looking at a real photo, you can understand, you live trough his moment, you feel that feeling.

    There are photo’s in this post, that lack that experience. Snapshots. Photo’s that don’t make me feel. They make me think, maybe, but not feel. I don’t get connected with the photographer. I don’t need 40 years of holding a camera for that. I just have to be human.

    Some of these photo’s are snapshots.

  146. 146

    Makes me want to get out with my camera again!

  147. 147

    Can’t you make some effort to identify the animals, e.g.a ladybird, blue-tit a sparrow and a magpie. What kind of deer/cockerel are they?

    Reminds me of a supermarket selling “curved yellow fruit”

    #40. Is incorrectly labeled. While it may be in Norway, that is not “Preikestolen”. Do an image search and you will see, plus I have been there and I knew Preikestolen, Preikestolen was my friend, and senator, you are no Preikestolen.

  152. 152

    These photos are great! Sure, some of these might be Photoshopped, but who cares? They are still nice to look at.

  153. 153

    Truly amazing pictures. A lot of them make me appreciate what our beautiful world has to offer. And why do so many think the seagull picture is fake? Because it’s ironic? Chill out people.

  163. 163

    photoshopped all the way baby!

    One of the most obvious examples? The seagull on the sign… clearly the seagull image on the sign is the same as the one standing on the sign. Look at the outline…enough said. Way to over-glorify some mediocre shots that were digitally manipulated extensively (or faked all together) to make them look like more than they ever, EVER were.

  164. 164

    Por que toda la jente escriben ingles? No hay ningun inteilgente? La mayoria de los fotos son de maravillia pero algunos son mas que normales. Tengo monton parecidos. Pienso que vosotros tanbien.

  167. 167

    these are just perfect…!!! i mean this post has a purpose.. sometimes you need this kind of post to freshen and loosen the pressured of everyone, especially the staff of smashing magazine. And the photography are great, every thing are great, if you don’t consider this a photography then what is this? Who set the standard? only you yourself has created the standard, but Good Job Smashing Magazine..

    I Love it

    The description for #7 is inaccurate. The glitter _is_ on the surface of the water droplet, you can tell quite clearly on the original.

    To comment # 128 by “noone” : Yes, thank you. That’s what struck me as soon as I saw the “photograph”. At first, I thought it was funny that the bird was in the same position as the one on the sign, then I realized it could not possibly have perfectly mimmicked every angle and curve. I was frustrated that someone’s digital alteration project was posted on a website labeled “(Really) Stunning Pictures and Photos”. Let’s hail with actual talent behind the camera.

    GREAT…….PERFECTLY TAKEN AN ART IN EVERY PIECE OF COLLECTION

  190. 190

    very stunning. Seen most of them in DeviantArt – which the artist claim been ripped off or stolen. After seeing and stumbling many amazing photographs in different sites and photographers claiming the photos belong to them, I’m not sure ‘who stole who’….. But credits should be given to the real people who took them… I feel sorry for them though….

  191. 191

    PHOTOSHOPPED!!!!!!!!!!

  192. 192

    Muse, which photos are the artists claiming are stolen? That’s a bold statement to throw around without citing any examples.

    Some of these are photoshopped, but most of them are not. I think there’s some fantastic work here. Good photography? Most definitely.

  193. 193

    The one with the bird oon a sign cant be real, the bird is in the same position and has the exact same silouhette!
    Also the flower one ‘refashioned daliah’ looks like it has been drawn to me!
    Other than that absolutely great!

  194. 194

    All of these pictures brought no true emotion to the viewer…landscapes are easy…what would henri cartier bressen think? What about pain? Suffering….you should be ashamed of yourselves.

    I am a makeup artist and would love to shoot with one of these photographers

  197. 197

    Awesome collection !!

  198. 198

    I m a web designer and i love the photographs it was assum.

  199. 199

    To cliphord: Not all photography should be pain and suffering. There are such a vast amount of emotions in the world, why only concentrate on the bad? I would absolutely love to see photographers show me something more than the sad, unjusts of the world. I WANT REALITY ALONG WITH DREAMS!!!

    And these landscapes, are beautiful! The first is my absolute favorite, and I can see why you put in as number 1.

  200. 200

    Very good photos… i wanna think that these are really taken and not edited by a computer program…
    well… congratulations and thanks for share!!!

  201. 201

    Those “right time” shot are exceptional. Bravo They aught to be put on billboards instead of those may meaningless ones. Beautify or towns and cities with talent and exppression such as yours. I thank you for your sharing and bid you continued drive and success…

  202. 202

    Absolutely exquisit: I’ll have to review them many times. I applaud the work of the artist or artists.

  203. 203

    Makes me want to look for the “moment” to capture. Reminds me of the Jacobean poets who would go from the large flights of mind to the miniscule…the beauty in the water droplets vs the sweeping clouds. Nice juxtaposition …and I like the philosophical discussion of art in photo vs snapshots.
    Photoshop must have changed the saying to: a picture is worth a thousand lies. Good to be wary, but why not enjoy the impact of the picture?

  204. 204

    All of the pictures above are realy astonishing, specially pictures which clrealy indicate “right time” capturing of the nature. The picture Polar Light is very impressive.

  205. 205

    Damm, wheres my camera…

  206. 206

    Very interesting pictures! Creative ideas. there are some that could be better…but overall, nice job. I really enjoyed Taw? weeee.
    Girl and water, bee the cat, seagull on a sign (cute idea), bird and meat, bird and water, cockfight, and family of bugs ( I have done many ladybug pictures my self)
    Even if these aren’t “real photography” like some might say, there are real art. They have impact!!! SO as an artist a give you an A for the day:) ~LeeAnna

  207. 207

    Very nice photos, but cockfighting is illegal in most places. I sure wouldn’t want my name attached to a photo like that, even if it is legal where it was taken. It’s a cruel sport and most people don’t want to have any part in it.

  208. 208

    blew my fragile little mind away. enuff said

  209. 209

    I bought myself a digital SLR last Christmas. These pictures make me feel like throwing it away. If I ever produce a photograph half as good as some of these, it would make me a very happy man.

  210. 210

    Take what you need, want and leave the rest

  211. 211

    Wow, incredible!

  212. 212

    Some of the photos are very beautiful but these are mostly the ones which are taken of natural landscapes, anything staged (like the gull, golfball or cat,child, goldfish) lacks in potency. Good work, but photography really is a lot about having the right instinct

  213. 213

    absolutly inspiring…some touch deeper than others…staged are hard ones…some relate and some don’t…I think you covered a lot of areas for viewing pleasure…thank you

  214. 214

    I sorry but anybody that didn’t like these pictures should go somewhere else, because I thought that these pictures were better that the ones that I take with my camera. WOW!!! That’s all I can say!

  215. 215

    For those few with the nasty criticisms- Grow up! These shots were shared for the enjoyment of others. They certainly made my Monday morning a little more pleasant! Thanks to those who took the time to post them.

  216. 216

    All stunning photographs specially ALL ALONE took my breath away. As regards all those
    comments against cockfight photos i hope all of them are vegetarians because if you dislike
    cockfight you should also dislike eating them. Cheers! :o)

  217. 217

    Bee~u~tee~FULL Pictures~!! “Thank *U for sharring”~!!

  218. 218

    49 of these pictures are indeed beautiful, whether real or not, I do however find #45 to be disturbing as cockfighting is a cruel, vicous and disgusting “sport” that I don’t find to be beautiful at all and wish that it hadn’t been included in with these others.

  219. 219

    beautiful

  220. 220

    I love the catching of beauty in a moment in time as these photos all do with the exception of the “cockfighting” – these is nothing beautiful in what these animals are required to do without asking their permission.

  221. 221

    wonderful pictures of God’s creation

    Ted Danson is the greatest actor of our time! The pictures are ok, I guess. Seriously, have you guys ever seen Cheers?

  226. 226

    I agree w/Angie – the cock fight photo is awful and should not be included.

    Photo fantastique, oh yesssssssssssss!!!!

  228. 228

    I really enjoyed seeing everyone one of these photo’s. Some more than others. Those that have such negative opinions should just keep there LOUSY comments to themselves, and let those that ENJOY them do just THAT….enjoy.

  229. 229

    Pictures are superb, i have made posters of few of them

  230. 230

    The images are “unreal”, colors are unreal, light is unreal. It is OK to tweak an image a little, but face it, these colors & light combinations are not available in nature. That is exactly why you like these, because they are unreal, dreamy, movie-like.

    Many of you who like these pictures will not get the same joy from pictures of pre-computer era. In those oldies, skies are sky blue, not parliament blue.

  231. 231

    Amazing ! all photoes are very nice. I can’t compare.

  232. 232

    very nice collection .

    there are some really nice pictures between.

  233. 233

    truly stands for the title…

  234. 234

    the poster “bob” who commented that these are photoshop pictures is an idiot, same with the people who are crying about the cock fight. keep your self-righteous, tree-hugging opinions out of it and just recognize art for what it is.

  235. 235

    The professional photography. Truely nice to see.

  236. 236

    I agree, the silhouette matches the bird perfecftly. And despite the texture of the paint – why on earth would there be a sign prohibiting seagulls? Who’s it for?

    Simplesmente fantátisco.

  238. 238

    Are you looking at photographs to see beauty, to see reality, or to see art?

    That’s the answer to all the complaints on this page. If you’re looking for beauty, the cockfight is abhorrent because it shows blood and cruelty. If you’re looking for reality, the cockfight is just a piece of the good and the bad that the world has to offer, but the seagull image and many of the other edited ones are artificial. If you’re looking for art, then some of the cute animal photos are a waste of time.

    Just accept that everyone has different priorities when they look at photos on the internet.

  239. 239

    stunning outstanding mind blowing

  240. 240

    ALL THE PIC R VERY VERY BEAUTIFUL

  241. 241

    um I hope you know that some of these are photoshoped, like the bird on the sign. but these photos are beautiful, (even some of the other photoshoped ones) and to Geeky, I also Hope you know what you are talking about, think about the professional photographers in the old days, take a look at the pulitzer prize photos and then look at ansel adams and tell he used a computer for those! even the old photographers could tweak their photos in the dark room! but yes some of these are photoshoped and for the people who say that they aren’t take a look at worth1000.com and study those for a while.

  242. 242

    extremely impressive pictures.

  243. 243

    These photos literally took my breath away ~ thank you SO much for sharing these with us!

  244. 244

    All the photos are very impressive but confused to see the All Alone. How one can reach and sit there ?

  245. 245

    Priceless!

  246. 246

    Nice shots.
    I just have one question. From the title, which of these are pictures, and which are photos?

  247. 247

    wonderfull

  248. 248

    Beautiful pics. I am in LOVE with each one of them

  249. 249

    Really its a dam good in the photo picturisation…….i hope we would like to c such a smaching photos here after………

  250. 250

    it’s very nice pict… beatiful work

  251. 251

    beatiful,exelent and fantastic
    hello i am from colombia and ilke the photos thanks

  252. 252

    awesome!!!

  253. 253

    The picture of the cock fight is beautiful because of the drama in the scene, the composition, and the way the photographer filtered it to make it stark and colorful at the same time.

    It doesn’t matter that the image “makes you sick” or that the activity “is illegal.” The artistic composition of the piece is fantastic, and has caused you, and others, (myself included) to briefly ponder an activity that normally we wouldn’t even think about. Thus, the photographer has raised consciousness of the issue, and in a subtle and constructive way.

  254. 254

    Tasteless and garish

  255. 255

    Puhleeeze …
    Photograph/snapshot/picture … whatever.
    Photoshop/”real” … whatever.
    So, you know about photography. Bully!
    Why can’t people just relax and enjoy?
    Neither I nor, I am sure, many of the other commentors could never create any of these photos. It made me happy to view thm.
    All the rest is “sound and fury signifying nothing”.

    how i wish i could take pictures like this…

  260. 260

    I have enjoyed looking at all the images especially the black and white potrait of the girl. Its one of those photographs that haunt you whenever you look at it.

  261. 261

    Wow, these pictures are unbelievable! I specially love the one of the water drop on the pink flower, the reflection is fantastic. The last photo of the little girl, its breath taking, the way the light hits her face and the hair is slightly windblown. Brilliant!

    I have decided that I officially hate everyone.

    Especially the people lucky enough to take these gorgeous shots.

    Insert envy here.

  264. 264

    I HAVE NEVER SEEN PHOTOS AS STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL AS THESE. WHAT AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE TO SEE. MY DAY HAS BEEN MADE.

  265. 265

    Breathtaking!!

    There is a God!!

  266. 266

    Nice, but a number of them have been heavily photo-shopped, so you really can’t call them photographs anymore.

  267. 267

    The beauty of the images render a lot of peace and tranquility to the disturbed mind.

  268. 268

    Wo0oW amazing pics ,,, keep the great work

  269. 269

    Most spectacular!! I especially like the number 27. Two ways at looking at a fish, the baby is so cute.

  274. 274

    Stunning indeed!

  275. 275

    I enjoyed the photos. I feel sorry for people who can’t simply enjoy the beauty and creativity of others. I don’t really care if these are professional photographers, photo editors, or just people capturing moments in time. Why not just sit back, take a deep breath and enjoy the view!

  276. 276

    we all know what is said about opinions.
    I think the photos are beautiful.

  277. 277

    I def. agree that these are AMAZING photos. Some of you need to keep your opinions to yourself and just enjoy what you see. Who cares where it came from or how it was done. It is posted here for you to enjoy. So if you dont like it.. then keep it to yourself. But me on the other hand.. i truely enjoy every single picture :)

  293. 293

    nice graphics

  294. 294

    Very beautiful series, I’m certainly glad I stumbled upon this. Some of the photos here I’m not sure I would charactarise as “beautiful photos” but rather strong/beautiful moments…

    Someone up there in the comments said that some of these photos are so photoshopped that you can’t call them photos anymore… I couldn’t disagree more. They are still photos. Call it a meeting of two arts on one platform. PhotoShop is now an integral part of modern photography, just as much as silver-nitrate was in the past century.

  295. 295

    awesome photos!

  296. 296

    Awesome photos!!! You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words……….

    With the title being (Really) Stunning Pictures and Photos, I was expecting to see some (really) stunning pictures and photos. But by the first image alone, I was thinking, what the hell is this? Most of these aren’t photos, they’re… images. Images put together by digital artists, nice, but not what I’d call photos.

  331. 331

    n Thnks for showing this wonderful pictures.

  397. 397

    Stunning pictures, yes! but personally I do not approve of a photo that are not “true”. I realize that this is subjective, as all post processing alters what was captured, but if you take it as far as some of the pictures in the collection why bother with photo. Start painting instead.

  398. 398

    WTF! this is awsome!

    Nice collection

  433. 433

    Hi my Mum always said if you can t say something nice don t say anything at all. Some people are obviously still trying to get themselves up to that level, going by some of the comments. Anyone who said things unpleasant about these photos obviously needs to open their eyes and that is surely what photography is about. It s the beauty behind the photograph that we the viewer are being invited to see and experience. Having shared this joy first hand may I say you are doing a good thing with the invitation, one day when people see nature they will eventually learn how to love it respect it and take care of it. It could be heaven on earth. . . . . Thanks

  434. 434

    Agree to vicky’s comments and the photographs make you feel the beauty of life.
    A salute to photographer and while watching the photographs, i felt as i am there ,really u have taken world’s beauty on small paper and this is all about your job.

    Great Job!!!!!!!!
    Continue this so that we will feel the beauty of world through your eyes.

  435. 435

    such a beautiful pictures……..thanks a lot for these pictures……..all the pictures are amazing………….I can see natural beauty capture by camera……………………cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

  436. 436

    nice…..(*=*)

  437. 437

    I truly enjoy others’ photos. It’s like seeing thru the eyes of the photographer. As far as negative comments, any photographer appreciates honest critique of their work, but, how can anyone say they did not like all of the photos. I’m sure that it is easy for the photographer to ignore these boneheaded nasty comments. I also agree that there’s an art to adding photoshop techniques and still have it appear as art. I’m sure the same was said about photography by paint artists when photography was first invented. Art is art, no matter how it was created. I do respect those that think that photo art should be done in the camera, but, I think they are a dieing breed.

  438. 438

    Very Very Nice.

  439. 439

    Wonderful, thanks for sharing…….

    No.21 I think is shopped as the bird shares exactly the same silhouette as the sign, to muc of a coincidence.

    number 43 is the famous wave @ Tahiti (French Polynesia), named Teahupoo (Wall of skull).
    Photograph is by Tim Mac Kenna

  464. 464

  488. 488

    Since when is a photo of a cockfight beautiful, smashing, artistic or even interesting? Maybe it has a place in some evidence room for an abuse case, but not in a collection of “art” photography.
    Also, it’s pretty easy to come up with a “great” photo when the subject is a cute animal.
    Loved the scenery shots and will use some of them for wallpaper… who cares if any of them were Photoshopped?

  489. 489

    i love this web page it rox

  490. 490

    I love the pics. of the waves. I was actually scared for a moment.

    Fantastic. I don’t care if any of these are photoshopped, if you think about it, it makes life more interesting…so what’s the big deal?
    Love the photos =]

    I love these photos. Some of them were fantastic! I love numbers 2 and six. They were my faves.

  501. 502

    all i can say is “WOW” the photos here are really stunning as the title implies. :D

  502. 503

    masha allah la quwwata illa billa hil aliyil azeem.
    beautiful pictures and correct timing.
    the pure heatr behind each picture is the great thing and shows the deepness of the photographer.
    wow very welldone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  503. 504

    “Its Reallyyyyyyyy stunning to this world”

  504. 505

    wow!!!! its all r mind blowing………MASHA ALLAH!!!!!!

  505. 506

    The pictures stopped my breath

  506. 507

    You have some of the MOST BEAUTIFUL pictures I have ever seen..
    are these mostly edited, or posted as they were shot??

  507. 508

    um to all those ppl who posted the dumb comments-chill…. even if u dont apppreciate photoshop etc, no need 2 b rude and act like no it all. bet u couldnt do half as well, so easy on the criticism— + even with pshop, ppl still enjoyed the shots.

  508. 509

    Professional or amateur – they are stunning photographs. Although I think the photograph is colourful, well composed, etc, I have to point out that cockfighting is not sport – it’s cruel to take advantage of an animal’s instincts for amusement or money.

  509. 510

    nice pictures

  510. 511

    great….. all the pictures are great and have some special message. i like all.

  517. 518

    wonderful moment are remembered…

  518. 519

    Great collection.
    Most of ‘em are stunning..but in my perspective some (only some) didn’t deserve the credits for making into the Top 50.

  519. 520

    inspiran la idea más profunda de la ignorancia de la vista.

  520. 521

    I am stunned and amazed, these are absolutely beautiful. A couple of comment posters, if I understand their wording, are actually picking fault with what’s presented here. Apparently the work done by them is even better. How nice to be that good at something!

  521. 522

    i was a hindu but became a muslim now.

  522. 523

    i too became a muslim. this is all shadow of the ALLAH.

  523. 524

    Mindblowing. Keep up the good work.

  524. 525

    really mind blowing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  525. 526

    The seagull on the sign is clearly a doctored photo. the picture on the sign is simply a silhouette of the seagull on top of it.
    Anybody can edit a photo. it takes true skill to capture images such as “Mt. Fuji”, or “Glow”.

    • 527

      Most of the pictures are nice, yes the seagull pic is photoshop stuff. even if someone does not agree , the sign does not make any sense.

  526. 528

    OUT OF THE WORLD !!!!!!!!!!!!! i guess.

  527. 529

    so beatufull

  547. 549

    The seagull one is a great picture (and funny), but it’s a photoshop jobbie. The seagull in the sign is the exact sillhouette of the seagull on top of the sign. Top job though.

  548. 550

    Drop dead gorgeous

  571. 573

    IMHO I think that #21 is a well done fake. Spent two minutes to compare the two seagull outlines … and you can relize that they absolutely matches.

  572. 574

    Absolutely amazing! The girls in my suite and I love it!!!

  573. 575

    one more life need to she like this

  574. 576

    These pictures are truly amazing and just made me catch my breath !!!
    But, I feel that some pictures were not ment to be here, such as the cat and dog and girl to name some.
    These pictures should truly remarkable pictures, but some of the ones ( like the ones listed above) were not that remarkable or unique so I feel they should not be part of the top 50.
    All in all though, most of them were just splendid
    Thank you for sharing them with us. =)

  575. 577

    i really enjoyed the pics.
    nice work. hope they will of bigger sizes and i would have used them as wallpapers.
    anyways thanks.

    Amazing pix. The “Bird and Water” is really nice and interest stiring as well. The water drops r clear enough but the neck shaking makes it seem like a drilling machine in action.

  578. 580

    oh my god, these are the most beautiful pictures.. most of them brought a smile to my face.. thank you soo much for sharing… god bless you..

  580. 582

    looks like someone at Smashing got one of those “bored housewife” inspirational emails and decided to publish it online as a collection.

    Some of the subject matter is interesting, but the shots are very plain – even boring.

  581. 583

    Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The swimming pool one is my fave…

  582. 584

    Simply Beautiful,
    I love the Big wave picture the best,

  591. 593

    For those who have comments about photos being manipulated in Photoshop, I am thinking that all of you really know how to use this program? More power to Smashing Magazine!

  592. 594

    none of those are impressing and i dont get how those fasenate you guys but if you want to try and impress me sent in pictures

  593. 595

    Considering the fact that the “seagull” on the sign is obviously photoshopped(the birds silhouette matches perfectly to the image on the sign), how many more here are fakes? It’s amazing how many people didn’t even notice.

  595. 597

    wow…..wonderfull……
    but plz add some amizing nd mindblewing pics
    okkkzzzzzzzzzz

    clevelandseniors.com/images/funny/09-18-08/fetus-foot.jpg

    I have no connection to that site, just googled it and found a link for you. I have no idea if it’s real or not. I know when I was pregnant, I used to be able to see the shape of his heel and actually ‘catch’ the tiny heel with my hand when he stretched, but never had anything like that photo appear. I guess it depends on a lot of factors… weight gain, baby’s position, skin elasticity, etc…

    Hope that’s what you were looking for!

    @smashing magazine – love the photos, real, photoshopped or not… they’re quite awesome. Same with the rain photos and the graffiti photos I was browsing earlier. Thanks!

  646. 648

    I seldom leave messages…but this site is something else. I just invested heavily in a new digital camera. For me, very expensive. Then I saw these photos. That expensive camera is now for sale, as I am going into janitorial services!

      I was truly just mesmorised by these photos, and literally had butterflies in my stomach from how stunning they were, pure bliss, and a festival for the EYES !

  647. 650

    Truly Amazing!

  648. 651

    Beautiful …
    Never seen such a thing …

  649. 652

    the only problem here is that some pf yhe selected “photos” are not actualy photos. they are photo manipulations and they dı belong to another art form. They are rather graphics.

  650. 653

    i love photos taken from the nature itself…pure beauty surrounding us..
    this photos reminded me to look at things from other perspective.. a girl portrait is different from the others..

  655. 658

    hi im 12 and these pics have inspired me to become a photographer ;)

  656. 659

    it a super super pic i never see like this pic,it a lovely and o:o:O:o:wonderful.

  657. 660

    all i can say is “some moments cant be described “… i think this is one of such moment….amazing collections…

  658. 661

    My one objection to the display of these images is that nowhere are the photographers acknowledged. Clicking on the image taking one to the source is not good enough. The names should go along with the images.

    If they were paintings this would never be the case. The photographer is an artist in his/her own right and deserves to have acknowledgement as an artist would. This is particularly true with the advent of post camera processing techniques that can enhance an image.

    If they are stock images they would need to be paid for and I believe should still be acknowledged if the information is available regardless. If they are shared images (given permission by the photographer to be shared with others as seems to be the case here) I believe they should still be acknowledged.

    These are not ordinary “photos” but in most cases are images that have taken some preparation and training to achieve and perhaps hours in the post-editing process. The photographer deserves recognition of some sort. To ignore this is to be disrespectful.

    Just a plug for those photographers whose individual talents go unnoticed and unrecognized.

  659. 662

    Amazing pictures and giving extra thought for the photographers. thanks for one the who shared this information.

    wonderful collections.

  660. 663

    Gorgeous, they are so details, my favorite picture is Marshmellow girl, very artistic, thanks for sharing :)

  661. 664

    # 21 is a fake. The seagull on the sign is EXACTLY the seagull on the sign.

    Great collection.
    Most of ‘em are stunning..but in my perspective some (only some) didn’t deserve the credits for making into the Top 50.

    Enough with the hyper-real cose-ups already. Wow, what a great lens you have. It sure focuses well.

  699. 703

    The most amazing thing I think, is that you can tell all the artists are really passionate about photography. I see beauty, but they see a beautiful picture frozen in time. The best part is they take it and they share it with me!

    The image entitled “cockfight” is a good photograph but should be removed as this is barbaric sport that is banned in most countries.

  777. 793

    Very nice pictures. Especially Yaw? Weeeee and Bird and Water.
    But Seagull on a sign is a fake. The Seagull is real, the content of the sign is not. It’s a nice idea but not a perfect realisation.

    ya wonderfull images just wonderfull and will remain wonderfull

  882. 902

    Wonderful images, great lightning and exposures, I can see a lot of art touches as an iphoneogaphics I have used similar effects mainly the most used ones (http://www.iphoneproguide.com/top-5-best-iphone-apps-for-photography/ ) as well as other applications such as dynamic light, and photoshake. thanks keep up the good art going

  883. 903

    loved the pics. my favorite is the first one. The scenary and the overcast weather with sunrays emerging gently from the clouds, is very captivating and makes me want to be there. The use of light in the picture, specially on the girl, also brings a new dimension to it. Bravo !!!

  884. 904

    Amazing.
    I myself is a frustrated photographer and those images really inspires me to be on top of my graphic design course.

    Thanks smashingmagazine you’re the best.
