Follow The Light by Bruno Pisani on 500px.com

What our photo editors loved: The big blue eyes, bathtime mohawk, and dusting of soap suds makes this kitten extra adorable — but it’s the composition, sharpness and nice shallow depth of field in this image that makes it so successful.

What our photo editors loved: At first glance, this shot looks abstract and minimal—but with this sweet line of children at an aquarium, you can see that this photographer knows how to use lines and colors to make magic out of a daily scene.

The purest love by Sergey Krotov on 500px.com
