Summer travel photo contest highlights

I love summer. And I loved seeing how you enjoyed your summer vacation making photography locally and from all around the world. There were a lot of images submitted and some really incredible ones. To be honest with you, it made me very, very envious. You saw rainbows, boats, exotic animals, landscapes and scenery that I dream of experiencing.

You got up early to experience sunrises, you waited for the light and the moments. You created magical memories. You enjoyed the warm, sunny beaches around the world, floated in hot air balloons, traveled far and local. Your photography made me fantasize about my dream summer vacation trips and helped me plan out a check list of all the places that I must visit as well. Thank you for this.

As you were inspired during your journey, I was also, editing your photography. We received over a thousand photographs in a short amount of time. There were so many good ones, in fact, that it made my job difficult, but in a good way, and narrowing it down to the best for print amplified wonderful discussions in our meeting. We didn’t argue this time as we had so many stellar choices. The thing that impressed me was that most of you took these photographs with your point-and-shoot cameras, a few even with your camera phones. It goes to show that it’s really not the camera but rather how you see.

The standard guidelines applied: No professional photographers and photos could not have been altered.

The gallery above is a sampling of some of the best. Enjoy yourself, as I have, and feel free to get lost in the images.

    There are a number of great shots in the 95 selected. It does seem, however, that a number of them have been processed into HDR photographs or other enhancements that seem to not fit the criteria set to enter only unaltered photos.

    thought submitted photos were to be unaltered. Many of those selected are obviously altered–usually by over-saturating colors. Why weren't these pictures selected? There's nothing wrong with alterations except by doing so, pictures were ineligible for the Times contest. I think the Times should change its rule, dropping the "unaltered" requirement since it doesn't enforce it.

    The altered photos look phony. This is a recent fad and will fade like most fads do.____There are some real nice photos in this batch and they will live on.
