While the Picture This! topic this month, "Spring Has Sprung," might seem seasonally inappropriate, the assignment was made during the height of the season so we'd get fresh, new images and not have readers sorting through their files from last year. The result was a profusion of amazing images ranging from florals to landscapes to a good deal of wildlife...

Hustling down through the forest looking for a bald eagle picture opportunity on the Skagit River in upper Washington state, my head spun around as this old 1941 Studebaker truck called out to me.

Being an eye doctor, my first impression was, "Oh, he's blind." Both headlights were busted out, with the wires hanging limp out of the...

I took this picture of my good friend while she was leading a rock route that pushed her skills to the limit. I wanted to be verbally encouraging while she was struggling at the crux, but knew that if I yelled from above her, it would be very distracting. The belayer managed to shout his support to her at just the right time as she worked through the difficult section and finished...

The power of suggestion is very strong in forming our perceptions. Think alligator, for example, even in a big northern city, and soon you might begin to see forms and objects that bring that reptile to mind. Our Picture This! assignment this month was just that--seeing the forms of letters of the alphabet in everyday objects and scenes. Readers responded with images that...

Sometimes you can become so consumed with the horizontal plane of good composition that you seldom experiment from different perspectives.

One afternoon while trekking around Black Hill Regional Park with my daughter, Allie, I decided to hold my camera in the vertical position and place it on the ground. While she kept an eye on a grey heron, I kept my eye on the road...

Our assignment for Picture This! was "Personal Portraits," and readers responded with wonderful images of those near and dear to them. Each image we received held something very special for the photographer and for those of us who viewed them here at the magazine. We wish we could publish many more than space allows. Once again, it proves the point that photography...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was festivals and parades, and we asked readers to submit images from gathering spots and events where people dress up, fly in hot air balloons, and generally experience things that are quite out of the ordinary. We received images from festivals all around the country that delved into all sorts of cultures and holidays, all of which...

I took this photo while in New York City with my family in the spring of 2007. I like this image because the old buildings are reflected in the glass of the new building--the past reflected in the present.

As part of our annual Photo Marketing Association (PMA) coverage we ask our reporters to deliver a "Best of Show" award. While each contributor had their own beat, we also asked them to go beyond their respective area of coverage to find what, for them, signified a breakthrough product, technology, or new trend that they felt would affect all photographers in the...
