The winning images from the second annual Natural Landscape Photography Awards were just announced. The competition was started to “promote the very best landscape photography by digital and film photographers who value realism and authenticity in their work,” with rules set up to prevent deceptive editing techniques. More than 1,000 photographers entered from 54 countries this year. Contest organizers were once again kind enough to share the winners and runners-up.
