Behold...Hi-resolution images

Behold http://www.behold.cc/ is a search engine for high-quality Flickr images. It is different from Flickr or Google, because those search through images using only image tags and filenames and not image quality though you can do an advanced search for higher quality images. Behold looks for only high quality images, so you don't have to sift through hundreds of poorly taken pictures to find a good one. Behold uses both aesthetic and technical quality indicators to find some of the best images available online. Behold is capable of recognising a number of visual concepts in pictures. You can ask Behold to return images that look like one of these concepts. This new type of search can be flexibly combined with regular text-based search. For example you can ask Behold to return images tagged with the word 'london' that look like pictures of buildings It also allows you to check a box for images to be altered, shared, or modified...thus simplifying the search even more!
