They have a monthly contest, and here's the link for the winners in the month of July. Some outstanding images.

I especially like the lacrosse game motion and the sports feature reflection. But the body on this swimmer is amazing. Capturing the man in this shot had to be an accident, no way it was planned. And I love the piano tuner reflection.

    Puddle shot
    The reflection of basketball player has text that says, "Eds Note: Image was shot at this perspective, it was not rotated afterwards." Either the image was rotated or the pic was taken with the camera upside down and I am not sure it matters which.

    I assumed that meant the camera was held upside down, as they seem to exclude the possibility that the image was rotated in PS.

    That seems to be correct. Great link, Sid (not your real name:D).
