25 stunning photos that need no Photoshop

Every creative shot stands out from the millions of ordinary photos thanks to one simple fact: it was taken at exactly the right moment. It can be an especially striking lightning flash, a tiny fish caught in an open beak or an unusual shadow, but these photos are all captivating in some way.
Because of this, you don’t have to be the best photographer in the world to get the best pictures. Sometimes you just need to be at the right place at the right time, and don’t hesitate to press the magic button.
