We've been bringing you the 10 best photos of each day throughout the Olympics. Some have been artistically stunning photos while others have just been images that capture lasting moments from the London Games.
This list will be dedicated solely to photos as art. Amazing colors (like this wrestling photo), innovative camera angles, shots that exude emotion and nifty lens tricks are what make these great.
