But other times, it's about the background. Take a look at these guys who took their photos to some exciting new heights...literally. Lee Thompson climbed up to the top of Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio De Janeiro...which stand on top of Corcovado mountain more than 2,300 feet above the city.
And this kid -Kirill Oreshkin who has a knack for snapping pics in places that'll make you nauseous.
Talk about dedication! This guy spent 3 years taking selfies all over the world during a road trip.
This isn't exactly high up there, but it's definitely just as daring. A photographer
captured this photo of a participant at the Great Bull Run taking a video of himself running for his life!
And this is just all kinds of daring. A photographer and his team illegally climbed to the top of Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza and captured some seriously remarkable views.
