http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/photo-contest/2014/entries/gallery/people-winners/ I found it interesting that I wasn't that impressed with the winners of the people and places categories (though they are good shots) but I was really impressed with all the Nature winners. Maybe because I lean more towards landscape and nature. Or maybe it's because the Nature photos seemed to "follow the rules" a bit more than the People and Places ones did. One thing I'm trying to get better at (or even be able to do) is to create images that tell a story somehow instead of just taking technically good photos. That's probably one thing that all of these photos do a pretty good job at.
