This has got to be one of the best posts I have seen on here!

Amazing and hearbreaking and I dont mind saying I shed more than a tear or two!

Great photos - so many stand out and touch each one of us differently.

Powerful, moving pictures though I think they missed one of the most poignant ones and well known of Kim Phuk running from her burning village with skin hanging off thanks to Napalm.

Curiously high number of recent pictures........ and what's that nonsense about the 1970 World Cup ('marred by racism'? I don't remember that). And who is British captain Bobby Moore??

It sadly missed this picture:

Not only is the picture sad, so is what it did to the photographer.

No 40 is the most powerful to me...the classic picture of our blue planet in the black void of space - taken from the moon.
