See Getty's Most Iconic Photos of 2013

As 2013 comes to a close, we're looking back at some of the most iconic moments.

This year brought both tragedy and triumph – from the Boston marathon bombings to the papal conclave.

Getty Images, one of the most respected photography agencies in the world, just released their best images of the year and CEO Jonathan Klein spoke with "New Day's" Kate Bolduan Thursday to share the results.

Klein says the organization selected the final images by first looking at the major events of the year.

"And then within that, can we find an iconic image which represents that event better than any others?"

Here's two of the images they chose:

Birth of the Royal Baby:
