The ALMA image of HL Tau is only one of the many spectacular images of protoplanetary disks obtained during the last five years. With specific focus on near-IR scattered light images from VLT /SPHERE, I show how these observations are changing our view of the processes of the planet formation. It turned out that peculiar features like spirals, rings, shadows, and cavities are ubiquitous in disks. The increased number of observations allows us now to draw the first conclusions on the evolution of disks and their interaction with (forming) planets.
