My Favorite Cinematic Stills

I love good movies, but I really love movies with good cinematography. Movies have definitely given influence to my photography and enjoyment of visual arts.

There are entirely too many beautifully shot scenes from different movies and shows for me to even attempt to list the best. Rather than talk about the cinematography of the scenes within movies or shows, I've decided to make a list of my favorite still images. These are not listed in any particular sort of order.

So, without further ado...
