10. As NASCAR pole award photos go, this is about as good as you could ever hope for. Beautiful Phoenix dusk light really makes this image.

9.  A perspective that really messes with your head. Anyone venture to guess how this photo was shot? Shout out to our good friend and XPB photographer Russell Batchelor on a unique catch (that he has done on a few occasions before, and we requested he do it again when we saw him at Austin for the USGP - well done Russ!)

8. Getting different celebration out of a NASCAR driver is rare. This makes the top 10 because it's clear Kevin Harvick put in a hell of a performance to win at Phoenix (and make the Chase). His reaction shows this.

7. The dichotomy between the Sao Paulo population just outside the Interlagos boundaries and the multi-million dollar machinery making laps is quite staggering. There's also good color in this.

1. A wonderful look at the Las Vegas ferries wheel and the low sun. Sometimes shooting into that ultimate light source is the difference between a pedestrian-looking image and a stunner.
