Grand Prize Winner

**MARKO DIMITRIJEVIC**** **Inhambame Bay, Mozambique

"These fisherman are pulling their dhow to shore to bring it home. The scene reminded me of those early 20th-century images of Africa. So I went for a backlit composition to silhouette the people. I enjoy taking photographs, but I'm no pro. When I see this image, I just see a wonderful souvenir."

First Place Winner

PHIL NELSON Kuamoo Bay, Hawaii

"My wife, Marilyn, and I were driving toward Kona on the Big Island when we saw the tops of waves and some mist off in another direction. So we took a side road to get as close as we could, and then walked on a footpath toward the coast. This is what we found."

**HEATHER MOORE **Harbour Island, Bahamas

"This man spent 20 minutes showing my son and me his church and sharing island history. We'd just met him on the street. A total stranger. He was so passionate, so proud and engaging that my 4-year old son couldn't stop listening. The man was happy to let me shoot a few frames."

**MICHAEL ALDRIDGE **North Shore, Kauai

"A morning earlier I saw a guy planting this field. That's what pulled my attention toward the glassy water and backdrop. I knew I'd have something special by shooting the field at just the right time."

**DAVID WATERSUN **Great Barrier Reef, Australia

"Fisherman toss their extra bait at the end of each day, and these pelicans know the routine. Suddenly, they dove toward a small harbour nearby. About a hundred of these amazingly colorful birds were sitting in the water in perfect symmetry, waiting patiently for the bait buffet."

Reader's Choice Winner

Fakarava, Tahiti: "On this day, you could pretty much point your camera anywhere and shoot a postcard. But the contrast of this bleached pier with that placid blue water made me reach for my wide-angle lens. The effect makes me feel like I'm still standing right there."
