Winners of the World Press Photos 2009, supposedly the best photos taken in the world last year, have been announced. You can see them all in a slideshow put together by the Sydney Morning Herald.

I’ve also added the slideshow to The Best Year-End Collections Of Images — 2008.

You can also see a series of unbelievable photos from some of the most polluted areas in the world. Thanks to Alec Couros for the tip.
