Reuters photographers captured the human drama in the most compelling stories of 2018, including desperate Honduran migrants confronted by Mexican riot police, wounded protesters at the Gaza border, Syria war victims rescued from rubble and pile-on victory celebrations at the World Cup in Russia. This feature showcases some of the standout Reuters images of the year along with blow-by-blow descriptions of how they came to pass from the men and women behind the camera.

Jonathan Ernst: "The most visible person in any White House is naturally the President, followed by the press secretary. But there are also the staff who support them, any one of whom might suddenly jump into public view and be national news for a day or two. For those of us covering the President Trump administration, there seem to be more compelling figures in the West Wing than ever before. It's crucial to know who's who and why they're important. When I raised my camera and back-pedalled ahead of the group to take this image Lewandowski gave me a hello and pointed right into the lens. I liked the photo, but had no idea it would go a little bit viral, especially since Scaramucci, who was the biggest mover and shaker that week, was hidden back in the pack.

Hamilton, Bermuda
Pictures of the Year: A picture and its story
J Class boats compete in a regatta between race days of the America's Cup finals in Hamilton, Bermuda, June 19, 2017. Mike Segar: "This image is of two J Class racing yachts on opposing tacks during prestart manoeuvres at a regatta during the 2017 Americas Cup. Nowadays the Americas Cup is sailed in catamarans with a crew of six that race at nearly 50 knots but between 1914 and 1937 it was fought in J Class racing yachts. These majestic yachts of yesteryear have enjoyed a renaissance as wealthy owners restore old boats and build new replicas. The regatta allowed accredited photographers the rare opportunity to document these historic yachts up close from a small fleet of "chase boats" over two days. This was a great opportunity for me to create a compelling series of graceful and more classic sailing images for Reuters as opposed to the high-speed action of the Americas Cup. Early in the morning the photographers travelled in the small chase boats several miles from Hamilton Harbor to the racecourse off St Georges, Bermuda. The largest ever gathering of these majestic yachts - seven in all, sailing close together - was a mesmerising sight. But translating that into compelling and graphically interesting 35mm images requires thought and experience. The simplicity of a boat in the water may look cool, but is it a strong photograph that stops a reader's eye? As the boats prepared to start, they sailed back and forth in close proximity. As boats crossed tacks with crew at the tip of the bow, this image, shot with a 400mm lens just came together perfectly. The shapes and symmetry make the image instantly compelling. Sailing photography often involves shooting many many images to get a few good ones. Most are failures but this one when I saw it, I knew was a "keeper"."

Palestinian rescue workers and onlookers stand on the rubble of a house, which witnesses said was destroyed by an Israeli air strike, as they search for casualties in Rafah, southern Gaza in this August 3, 2014 file photo. The July-August war in Gaza drew international condemnation for a number of reasons, but one episode proved more deadly than any other: an Israeli air and artillery bombardment on Aug. 1 that killed 150 people in a matter of hours.The events unfolded just as a three-day ceasefire was supposed to come into force. Hamas militants emerged from a tunnel inside Gaza and ambushed three Israeli soldiers, killing two of them and seizing the third.To rescue the soldier - dead or alive - and ensure Hamas could not use him as a hostage, the Israeli army invoked what is known as the "Hannibal directive", an order compelling units to do everything they can to recover an abducted comrade.What ensued was a furious assault on a confined area on the eastern edge of Rafah, the largest city in southern Gaza.

An elderly man walks through a small Chinese alley known as a 'Hutong' in central Beijing July 12, 2012. As China confronts the prospect of an aging population that will drive up wages, Beijing will be compelled to let market forces play a larger role in managing the economy, a senior U.S. Treasury Department official said earlier this year, with demographic data from China's statistics agency showing that the Chinese population is ageing quickly and the rural labor pool shrinking, which many economists cite as the fundamental reason for sharp wage rises in recent years.

Smoke billows from the chimneys of a coal-burning power station in central Beijing
Smoke billows from the chimneys of a coal-burning power station in central Beijing March 15, 2012. Beijing has pledged to reduce carbon intensity -- the amount produced per unit of gross domestic product -- by 17 percent over 2011-2015, and big heavy industrial emitters will be compelled to cut CO2 produced per unit of output by more than 20 percent by the end of 2015. The country emitted 8.33 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide in 2010, a quarter of the global total, according to BP's annual Statistical Review of World Energy released last June.

Yoram Kaniuk, a rambunctious 81-year-old author, was hailed by Israeli secularists this week for winning a court victory that compelled the state to stop listing Judaism as his "religion" while keeping "Jewish" as his "ethnicity". He is the first Israeli Jew to have done so. REUTERS/Ronen Zvulun (ISRAEL - Tags: POLITICS SOCIETY)

Actors Eric Jackson Bradley and Tori Sparks perform the parts of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth in a production of "Sleep No More" in New York July 25, 2011. A haunted house, it's not. But for theatergoers including many high-profile celebrities hidden behind masks, "Sleep No More" certainly is haunting. Dubbed "immersive theater" by directors Felix Barrett and Maxine Doyle of British theater company Punchdrunk, the new show compels audience members to roam five floors and almost 100 rooms of the fictional 1930s McKittrick Hotel in search of performances -- small snatches of dance or largely silent scenes between actors -- that will lead them on an adventure.
