The Atlantic's excellent 'In Focus' photo blog has published the third and final part of its 2012 Year in Photos. The three-part series includes 135 images from around the world, covering a great breadth of events and subjects. As you'd expect of such a review, there are some occasionally graphic images that some readers may find disturbing but there are also some astonishing photos giving a surprising views of other countries and cultures.
We've chosen three of our favorite images from the three-part article, and you can click on them (or the text links) to see Atlantic's full selection. And as always, let us know your favorites in the comments.
