Fantastiche foto del concorso NG..*_*

One of the best contests each year is the National Geographic Photography Contest. They always receive so many photographic entries that are simply amazing shot from locations all over the world. I picked out a few of my favorites to share here along with the links to go see more.

Photographers of all skill levels participate in the National Geographic Photo Contest each year submitting over 15,000 photos across three different categories, Nature, People and Places. The photographs are judged on creativity and photographic quality by a panel of experts. There is one first place winner in each category and a grand prize winner as well. You can go see all the entries right now on the National Geographic Photo Contest Website.

But the parents ignored it, and the it flew away – and I did not see it again.
