Kris Tapley's Top Ten Shots of the year (parts one and two) is always something to look forward to. 2010's selection may not top the spectacular 2007 picks, but it's not always about the single image, Tapley explains:
"...great cinematography isn’t (and shouldn’t be) dependent on singular frames or visual moments, but the overall canvas and mise-en-scene delivered from beginning to end. I have a lot of fun digging into the visual vocabulary of a year in film and, to say the least, discussing that vocabulary with the craftsmen and women involved, so who can complain? I hope you enjoy."

We select two of Tapley's ten shots (above and below). One we can expect to see among the Best Shots of 2011 is Terrence Malick's Tree of Life, and later on, his new untitled film starring Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams (which released a first photo, below). Here's Tapley's complete list of films and their DPs:
