New Year's brings many great photos from around the world, usually of crowds celebrating or fireworks exploding, but this year a picture of Manchester, UK police dealing with drunk locals has gone viral for reminding people of the greatest works of Renaissance art. The photo, now dubbed the 'Creation of Manchester,' was taken by Joel Goodman for the Manchester Evening News in the early hours of New Year's.

If you can't immediately see just how impressive the composition of the picture is, here it is with the curve of the "Golden Ratio" prized by Italian artists superimposed over it.
