    Many people in NYC saw three men flying through the air, but these remote-controlled "flying men" were actually PR stunts to gain attention for a new movie launch (it worked!). Photo: Thinkmodo

    Top 10 Photos: Vote for Your Favorite HEARTS Photo

    In our first Top 10 Photos post, I wanted to do an image search on the word "heart." With Valentine's Day coming up, photographers are obsessed with capturing images that show the tender embrace, emotions brimming over in teary eyes, and so on. But I wanted to find the 10 best - in my opinion - photographs that incorporated a heart in the image. I've not put these 10 in any particular order - that task is up to you. Use the survey at the end of the post to vote for your favorite "Heart" image. Thanks for voting and check back soon for another Top 10 Photos vote!
