The photographic prowess of our readers never ceases to amaze us. These ten collections feature the most jaw-dropping user-submitted images of the year—perhaps of the decade.
Man can fly, but he can't yet levitate. Maybe that's why these 98 photos of levitation—using Photoshop only to remove the strings—are so striking.
