With a click of a button and a colorful spin around the world the third Your Shot cover assignment has come to a close. We are so excited to share the top 15 images...one of which will grace the cover of National Geographic Traveler's October/November 2019 issue.
When selecting these images, the editors kept in mind location, framing, quality of light and leading lines. They also thought about the cover design, where text would be placed and how the image would pop off a newsstand or coffee table. Narrowing down the entries to the final 15 photographs was not easy. From striking shafts of light highlighting a waterfall to the icy blue water of Greenland, Your Shot photographers traveled to far-flung places places and captured beautiful images. Choosing the finalists took deliberation and sparked lively conversations.
