I truly hope that black&white basketball picture was photoshopped.... Those fingers seem to be *inside* his eyes!

That b&w photo of the fingers inside the other´s eyes is actually a winner of the world press photo, so i think it is not photoshopped!

Sergio: what is the source of your information. As far as I know, this photograph is NOT a winner of the world press photo. In fact, there's only ONE sport's related photograph that ever won this competition and that was way back in the 60s (it was taken during a football match in the rain).

I'd guess Sergio got his info from the world press photo contest website.

Love the site, you owe my employer a lot of lost hours :D now for my first comment...

That rugby photo is related to the 2008 Rugby world cup in Paris, it didn't turn out as romantic as the photo suggests!
