People pose as statues in the centre of Arnhem on Aug. 29 during the Living Statues World Cup.
This image was eliminated from this week's The Week in Pictures during the final round of editing.
While we felt it was an interesting image in composition, color, contrast (the whites of the the subject's eyes are SO white against the body paint), we felt it went head-to-head with the image titled "Little Krishna," since we liked it for all the same reasons.
In the end, "Little Krishna" won out, b/c while both were performance events, we felt this one was the more staged of the two (since the subjects were actively competing as statues).
Check out the "Little Krishna" image as well as Polish snowballs, Hurricane Earl from space, dogsled water-skiing, and more.

A bald eagle cools off at the Zoo in Madrid Tuesday Aug. 10, 2010.
This image was eliminated from this week's The Week in Pictures (known to the media eds here as TWIP) during the final round of editing.
While the bright, saturated colors, and the really interesting texture of the water hitting the eagle's feathers were engaging, the fact that this photo was from a zoo - a controlled environment - did deplete the editors' initial reaction to the image, and in the end, it didn't make the cut for this engaging week that included: desperate survivors of Pakistan's massive flooding, an eye-tricking image of underwater swimming, a sweet moment of summer love, and more.
