IMAGE: http://i44.tinypic.com/nodj6p.jpg

Taken during the attack on Royal Bank of Scotland during the G20 riots. The person in the picture had just kicked a policeman and then put his hands up when the police officer rose his baton. He is looking back to the photographers knowing it looks like police brutality. I was the only one who caught the shot from this angle, and think it sends quite a powerful message about the media's role in events like this.

Probably my favourite picture. I have a whole series of these and they've been quite highly acclaimed, even reaching as far as the desk of Discovery Channel :)

I love pictures with stories behind them. And this is one of those shots that you don't see everyday.

Awesome, I was going to ask if this was set up. Looks like it. Crazy. Glad to hear you're doing well for yourself it seems.

No set up, just one of those decisive momoents where I was there at the right time. I have the before and afters, but that shot was just one of many. To be fair, there was so much going on around you that it was really hard to take a bad shot.

To date, this is my favorite picture right now

It's one picture spread out over 3 shots, one "3D panoramic" image of 3 landscape shots from the West, the North, and the East in that order.

I'll upload a shot of it in frame, too, for better viewing, but here's a sample of it...extremely popular series.

I can't stop looking at it, myself, I printed it in 17x22 to just hang on the wall behind me, taking up a total size of 60x74"!!

They look like spectacular shots, and this tiny thumbnail do them no justice whatsoever! Have a link to larger versions?
