    Wow. All of them are excellent, although I really like the shot from the food charity ... the way the woman's eye catches the camera just as the shot is being taken.

    Do you have a link to where you got these? I'd like to look at more ...

    Most of these are really well exicuted photos....but I gotta say the composure of some is a let down to say the least....that Best nature photo...come one...that's pretty lack-luster.

    Also....by digial photos you mean strickly digital (Digital Camera) or like, taken with a 35mm and scaned/altered digitaly.

    The food charity one is by far the best shot. The earthquake shot is ok...but it shouldn't even be in this group. The yassir arafat one is really nice too...as is the burma prison. Everything else is kind of average. The Sillicone mask is awful.
