Photographers have a keen eye, and part of that is noticing moments when people, places, and things converge in extraordinary fashion. Our Picture This! assignment this month asked readers to submit images that caught those “comings together” that held those odd coincidences in a single image. Readers used long lenses to compress space and bring disparate subjects closer, and wide...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was “Just Black and White (No Grays),” and readers have responded with a wide range of high-contrast black and white images, from architecture to portraits to dreamlike scenes that add a heightened sense of mystery to an already abstract form. Many of the images resemble pen and ink drawings, with others playing into the line and form potential...

One of my favorite art galleries is the Jellies Gallery in California’s Monterey Bay Aquarium. The “art” is constantly moving and endlessly fascinating. On my last visit I stood mesmerized in front of the giant sea nettle exhibit for about 20 minutes, trying to capture the sinuous grace of these incredible creatures with my D-SLR. It wasn’t until I stepped back that I...

Like most of the time when I’m taking pictures, I found myself on this lonely dirt road. This particular tree caught my eye, because, in the middle of nowhere, it was as if it were admiring its own beauty. This nowhere is somewhere in Michigan, by the way.

Our Picture This! assignment this month was Sacred Spaces, places that inspire us to consider the less material and more spiritual side of life. Readers responded with many images of awe-inspiring landscapes with special meaning, places of worship, of pure light and color, and, in some cases, of places that have special meaning for the photographer. All this could go to prove that the divine can...

I return to Ireland each year, since my parents were born there and most of my family reside there. I try to capture the essence of this beautiful island year after year, mostly through landscape photos of Ireland’s emerald green patchwork fields, majestic mountains, and glorious scenery. One day, this window caught my eye, and to me, captured everything that Ireland appears to be: a nation...

To use an old phrase: “Far Out.” That was our reaction to this month’s Picture This! assignment, Special Effects. Readers sent us images made in camera and post-processed to change reality in unique and wonderful ways. While some readers shared their recipes some didn’t, which led us to some interesting discussions on how some of the images we received were created.

Our Picture This! assignment this month was "On the Beach," images made where the land meets the sea. Readers responded with images from around the world showing a sense of color and design that the areas inspired. Quality of light, form, and line and shadow all play their parts in these locales, and images showed the grand and macro, the simple and complex, and most of...

While watching the sun set over Monument Valley on the Arizona/Utah border this past January, my shadow and that of two good friends fell across this sandstone boulder. Raising my camera (I'm in the middle), I not only recorded the grandeur of Monument Valley, but also embossed our shadows forever on this print as a reminder of this trip and our friendship.
