One of my favorites is the picture of the floating body under the bridge in New Orleans, as is the one with the burning reflections in the water. Michael's favorites are also good pictures.
But did anyone else notice that there was a disproportionate amount of TIME's own pictures there?
I didn't check absolutely all, but of those I checked (10 or 12), only one was not a TIME picture.
Perhaps the title should be "TIME's best photos of the year 2005".
