  • My name is Jason Wessendorf and I'm from Verdigre, Nebraska, USA. This photo was taken at the Knox County Fair in Bloomfield, Nebraska, of cowboys and cowgirls watching the bull riders. I used a Nikon D750 with post processing done using Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw. The scene was just so overwhelmingly rural and American I wanted to try to capture it.

  • Beautiful picture from Asia. Very early morning we presume. It could have been taken hundreds of years ago, had it not been for the stellar image quality from a camera clearly used competently in our time. Very well done!

  • I'm so honored to receive a mark of excellence, thank you! I took this while on my way out of Zion NP around 10 PM after catching sunset on Angel's Landing and walking back out of the canyon (I did manage to hitchhike half of the distance). I skipped this spot several times during the trip because everyone seems to take this same photo. But since it was night I decided to brave the cold and see how it looked in the moonlight - this was a 4 minute exposure taken just as the moon was peeking over the valley walls. There was no wind at all so the trees look like they are completely frozen in time. I was surprised to find that so much color was captured even in the dim moonlight!

This shot is a self-portrait, taken by my trusty Canon 6D and triggered over wifi using my iPhone (that's what I'm holding in my left hand). It took a lot of attempts to get this timing!

  • Breathtaking possibilities is what this photograph communicates to us. It’s very uplifting. We like how it continues forever: What we first thought was an ocean, is even more space and landscape. Fascinating.

  • Lowell, Michigan 2017. Sony A7RII with Zeiss 35mm 1.4 I took this photo of my daughter sitting in a ray of sunlight waiting to ride her horse. In the background mirror reflection you can see myself with camera in hand and my wife on horseback which makes a nice triangulation and unconventional family portrait.

  • Pingpong was our first idea, but more likely a dance or rehearsal of a dance or ritual. This photograph stands out for the beautifully muted colors, the landscape and how it continues to grab our attention.
