Shooting beyond the obvious
Associated Press photographer Maxime Jegat shot the torn electoral posters for the two French presidential candidates, with Segolene Royal, top, and Nicolas Sarkozy on a wall in Lyon, central France, to tell the story of the close French presidential election. Both candidates proclaimed their impending victory after a fiery, combative TV debate in the run-up to Sunday's vote. Jegat's picture illustrates the story through a eye-grabbing image.
