I was shooting the St. Patrick's Day Parade in NYC a few weeks ago and came across this guy. One of the most important aspects of travel photography is people. This shot has a sense of time and a sense of place ("only in New York").

Taken in winter the after the snow.I spent the day in this photographers' favourite place. I was busy taking pictures of more famous bridge on the river. Then I saw some interesting cloud formation moving from behind the sun. I quickly positioned myself and set my camera to to get this amazing glass building in focus and made adjustments for correct composition. I had to wait a while to ensure the lighting rays were effective and looking cool for creative effects. I took several shots in brief successions and was quite pleased to view them after the download into my computer hard drive. This is the one I chose for this month's competition 'Travel'.

Inner Pool

I was in Newfoundland returning home by ferry at Port-Aux-Basques. Being a little early I took a short trip into one of the fishing villages. As I was leaving to go to the ferry I noticed a road I had not been on yet so I took a chance and drove up the road to find this scene. This is one of those impossible to photograph. This is only part of the scene as it stretched three times as wide. A wide angle would be two narrow a band of land for the normal computer screen. It would only be viable on a 5 foot wide image. This is not an artificial reflection but totally natural.

It still brings me back to the quiet little tide pool.

I was wandering around the streets in Havana, photographing all the wonderful sights there, and saw these two women on a balcony, sharing a laugh. This captured moment in time, for me, really conveys the flavour of the place; the crumbling building, the hanging laundry, and the wonderful spirit of the people.

Lucerne

by Daniela Negreda
(Lausanne, Switzerland)

I arrived in Lucerne around 9 pm just to be delightedly surprised with all the night shot opportunities. I shot until 11 pm, when I decided it was better for me to try to find my hotel or I would spend the night outside...

Summer Orlando Night

Orlando, Florida

Orlando, Florida

Orlando, FL has always been one of my favorite travel destinations. It is not just the warm weather but the great number of attractions and diversity of the city. Here I was trying to capture the serenity of the night. I exposed for the building and let the boat blur to capture some movement. This is a hand-held shot, so it was a little more difficult to achieve the desired effect.
