What differs one creative picture from millions of mindless snapshots? The moment properly caught. It could be the moment when the lightning strikes, tiny fish jumps out of the bird’s open beak, the wave freezes in the highest point before crashing down all at once.
One can study photography all his life, but sometimes even a total noob can take a great shot just by pressing the shutter button in the right time and the right place.
Here you can see the best photos of the year 2014. They are all different. Taken by different people from different countries. Both by pros and amateurs. The only thing that unites them is that elusive moment. It, rather than a tonnes of Photoshop applied, makes these photos stunning.
