Swallowed By the Sea

Tomer: for Newsweek-- "As Japan reels from the tsunami, archeologists claim to have discovered the lost city of Atlantis, a fabled place built--like much of the world--in the crosshairs of nature." The idea was to keep the focus on the human peril aspect of this primal threat looming above civilazation since the dawn of time.

  3. Dynamite. The light over the figures and against the dark/claustrophobic height of the wave is really haunting.

  6. This also captures the worst fears of a parent: being powerless to protect their child.
