One of the biggest honors an iStockphoto contributor can receive is to have one of their images featured as the Image of the Week. When you take into consideration that there are over 85,000 contributors who have built an inventory of 5,000,000+ images it really puts into perspective how difficult this can be to achieve.

This week’s selection is a great image by none other than local photographer (and my good friend) Nicole Young. Her panning shot of a speeding cyclist can be seen on iStock’s front page this week.

Congratulations Niki! The honor is much deserved.
