Sports Illustrated 2007 Year in Pictures

Sports Illustrated Photo

Sports Illustrated has posted their 2007 Year in Pictures, highlighting the year’s best photos in sports. The iconic photos, 43 in all, were taken by various SI photographers from all over the world and feature diverse sports events like the NFL (football), US Open and Wimbledon (tennis), Japanese Grand Prix (motorcycling), Ski Jumping World Cup, NCAA Tournament and NBA playoffs (basketball), USA Wrestling World Team Trials, Tour de France (cycling), The Masters (golf) and Daytona 500 (car racing).

The amazing sports photos can be inspirational to aspiring amateur sports photographers who may wish to gain pointers on how professional sports photos are taken.

“To paraphrase the great Henri Cartier-Bresson, to make a brilliant image is to capture, in a fraction of a second, the significance of an event,” goes the blurb on SI.com.
