"Apocalypse" by Joakim Olofsson. Last but certainly not least, this incredible panorama of an abandoned mega-city sums up our fear of urban collapse in the modern world. Though the older religious themes are certainly still relevant, technological apocalypses have dominated our conception of humanity's demise. There is nothing more breathtaking and haunting than an image of a decaying urban metropolis such as this. You can almost hear the wind howling through the broken windows. *Shudder*
