This page layout is interesting because the tunnel photo creates a very strong focal point, while the landscape photo at the bottom and the text wrapping create movement and a spacious feeling. Also, I like how the story's subtitle is above its title.
I really like how this magazine has it's grid layout (for where to run it's text columns, place images, etc.), and then runs over top of everything with large text. Love that some of the text runs off the page.
