How can it be the best of 2006 when there are still 4.5 months left in 2006?

nothing interesting is going to happen over the next 4.5 months.

Most of the pictures are from 2005, I guess they take a while choosing the winners.

All of the pictures were taken in 2005. The results of the judging were announced back in March.

cranberry,
then you must have missed the photograph of the gangbanger's head that just happened to fall off during a riot.

Many of these images are incredible.

However, it seems a shame to me that the website has done such a poor job of presenting them online. Some are missing whilst quite a few are over compressed or received some harsh sharpening.
