For my reaction post I looked at The Washington Post.com day in photos. I like the setup they have for this section because it is very well organized. Each photo collection is organized by a theme and viewers can go from the main page to differently themed albums that are organized like a book you can flip through by selecting either left or right. This is what an internet based story is supposed to be like: separated into bite sized little pieces so that they can be. It is also nice that you get sidebars on the pictures with little captions that help the viewer understand what they are looking at better. This sidebar also contains links to different stories that are related to the pictures. For example, the picture related to the German student who shot up his school and then died in the ensuing police shootout.. This picture lists a link to the article that further explains what happened. This reminds me of the articles found on IGN.com, and how they are similarly separated into segments.
