Best of Photo Challenge: Tension Building

Posted by Darlene Bouchard — 28 Dec 2010

Sometimes the tension in the air is so apparent you feel like you could cut it with a knife. Other times tension is presented in other ways: a person's facial expression, a gesture, or a situation that appears strenuous.

For this photo challenge we asked you to find scenarios where you could visually see tension building. Your images were filled with emotion and sometimes hard to swallow, but they were beautiful because they captured this important aspect of life that everyone experiences at some point.

Below are just a few of our favorite submissions to Photo Challenge: Tension Building:
