35 (Really) Stunning Photos and Pictures

Advertisement

We love beautiful photography. In photos, the beauty isn’t necessarily reflected in an eye-catching combination of colors; perspectives, angle, composition and, most importantly, the idea behind the shot or the situation in which the shot was taken, are particularly important when it comes for our showcases.

Over the last months we have covered a variety of different photography arts, such as shadow photography, night photography, city photography, arial photography, urban decay and many others (you can find them in our section Inspiration). This time we present you a “mixed bag” of some truly outstanding photos and images, created by talented photographers and designers across the globe.

Below you’ll find 35 truly stunning, beautiful and unusual photos. Every image is linked and leads to the source from which it was taken. Please feel free to explore further works of the talented photographers presented above.

    There are some outstanding shots but unfortunately just some. I think it would be better to make a smaller collection, let’s say 10 photos, to keep the quality high. Same goes for some of your other collections and lists. Anyway, thanks for this, it was a pleasure to view some beautiful photos!

    They’re all good, clean photos with good qualities, but they all just seem so “stock” to me. the only one I really like which might even be the most simplistic, is the one that has “I MISS HER” painted on a wall. That’s the only one that really hits me.
