It's a long time that I eagerly follow and enjoy press photos in various media and news agencies. Photojournalism and documentary photography were always along my favourite categories in photography. So many breathtaking images are captured by amazing photojournalists around the globe every day. Some are in a war zone or human conflict, and some in a public event, social gathering, politics or simply every-day life. I personally exclude paparazzi and celebrity photography from this style since I don't perceive any sort of art in that type of work but bothering people!! Anyways
I would like to share some of my favourites from various photojournalists based on different perspectives (angle, timing, human conflict
) with you. Today, we'll have a look at some photos which illustrate the best of "angle". The name of news agency and photographer are followed by the picture:

One of the best shots I've ever seen. The picture received 1st Prize as The Art of Entertainment, shows dancers from the Nederlands Dans Theater take part in a dress rehearsals for their forthcoming Edinburgh International Festival performances at the Edinburgh Playhouse,Scotland. Amazing angle came with wonderful color composition.
Look at this angle! How could it be better?! Got 3rd Prize of Georges Bendrihem Prize. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Kuwait's Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser al-Mohammad al-Sabah listen to the national anthems during a welcome ceremony in Berlin.
