So I thought it would be cool to have a thread for folks to post their favorite shots from Naruto. Be it a single panel, a full page/cover, or a two page spread, post your favorites and discuss if you like. Let us all revel in the very best of the best of Kishimoto!
Here's an absolute favorite of mine, (Volume 4, Chapter 30, Pages 16 and 17):
I love it because it's raw and gory, and shows just how brutal a ninja's death can be even if that ninja is a 15 year old boy. The scene is laid out perfectly to amplify the intensity of the moment. Out of nowhere you turn the page and get the full view of Haku being impaled by Kakashi's arm. Zabuza is just an inch or two out of Kakashi's reach, standing behind Haku, still in shock that he's not dead and splattered with Haku's blood. Cut to the view over Kakashi's shoulder showing where his arm penetrates Haku's chest, like he's only just realizing what he's done. It even shows the shudder run through Haku. Cut to Zabuza, staring wonder struck at Haku as if he's just now registering what Haku has done. At the same time Tazuna and Sakura are horror struck over what they're seeing.
(I, personally, was wearing the grin of an extremely satisfied fangirl.)
There's something about bloody scenes in black and white that just hits the spot...I don't know why...
Okay, so here's a post from khar2 that gives directions on how to post pics inside spoilers so you don't have to just post links if you don't want. Everyone say thank you to khar2 and post more lovely pictures.

lol the 1st panel of that page was my desktop background. I also love Kishimoto's bloody scenes :P
truthfully...that page is probably the best, dramatic scene! no other scene that i can think really captured the mood you described
I like the differences and improvements of the manga from the first chapters to the later chapters.
Definitely this one...
Didn't see this one coming!
Ah! That's IS a great shot! Thank you for posting that addition! XD
Oh and your sig is funny as hell.

pretimeskip: bottom right panel
that was my favorite for the longest....
I've mentioned it before...
But this is the most exciting moment for me in the manga...
And the most awe-inspiring.
Ha! Holy crap!! That is the power of Gaara. I'd love to see him go all out now...I wonder if he's more powerful??

arg, i havnt read the manga for awhile, but that is a good shot kusachu...but that was the sadest part for me
dam, look at the Itachi and Kisame from back then and look at them now, the manga has become more smooth I guess, but I like the ruggednessof the older chapters
This is a good shot, idk about the best, but his posture here commands so much respect, I like it
And I like this one too, its a nice scenic pic of Sasuke finaly comfronting Itachi.

And I wanted to wait to post this one until I had the time to sit down and analyze it...but I want to be first to mention it (since it's so obviously one of the best of all time. )
I think I'm going to have to do this scene as a long progression because the page before and after have to be included in that!!
Itachi sitting on the throne was an amazing shot and one of my favorites...it showed just how badass and cool Itachi was... until this one a couple of chapters later
