Travel photography contributions – week 3 (18-26 June 2012)

Roll up, roll up for week 3 of our travel photography competition, in which we throw the spotlight onto some of the fantastic pictures you have sent us via our Facebook page .

The first amazing shot was taken in Burano, Italy and sent by Bogdan.DPhotography.

As Dan Bogdan tells us “Burano, Italy, it’s a Мecca for photographers seeking an abundance of colors and reflections. Although Burano is known for its lacework, it’s more popularly known for its brightly-painted houses. They say fishermen paint their houses in bright colors so that they can easily spot them on their way home at dark. The colors of the houses follow a specific system. Before a family can paint their house, a request must be made to the government, which determins what colors are permitted on that lot.”

Dan Bogdan is a traveller and a photographer with 18 years experience. Visit his blog Bogdan.DPhotography for more stunning pictures and interesting descriptions.

Another exquisite photo sent by one of our readers was taken by Lake Atitlan in Panajachel, Guatemala by Weiyuan Xu.

And the last photo in this week’s selection shows Harbour Bridge in Sydney, Australia. This awesome shot was sent by Patrick Cuba. Patrick is also a travelling photographer whose focus is mainly on HDR photography. Visit his website for more great photos!


What are Travel Photography Contribution Weeks?

Each week we publish the three pictures which got the most “likes” on our Facebook page giving the photographers the credit they deserve. The competition has a 3-4 week delay so that the pictures sent later in a week will have an equal chance to get the same amount of “likes” as the ones sent at the beginning.

If your pictures are among this week’s selection, feel free to link to our website and tell your friends about it.

If you would like to participate in the selections, post your best TRAVEL shots on our Facebook page with their location clearly indicated.

Keep sending your photos and travel safe!
