A Visit to Zavareh

An ancient castle in the old town of Zavareh, Iran

There is a cinematic quality to this photograph—and to others in Bahareh’s gallery—which lends a sense of drama and timelessness that I find very appealing. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor

Petroglyphs by Night

“Imagine if we could speak to the earliest Americans,” writes Your Shot contributor Joseph Thomas, who submitted this picture to the Imagine If assignment. “In a way, they are speaking to us. Photographing these petroglyphs inspires a sense of communion with the ancients who created them, a spiritual connection that reaches back through the ages. Three o’clock in the morning brought the moon into perfect position to illuminate the scene. The cactus was lit by a flashlight with an orange filter.”

“The moonlit sky and the rock wall create striking planes of color that neatly divide the image. The creative use of an orange filter gives the photo a nice pop of color while balancing the petroglyph on the other side of the frame.” —Monica C. Corcoran, managing editor, Your Shot

Color Block

Colonial architecture in Campeche, Yucatán, Mexico

What could be an almost too quiet scene of solid blocks of color comes alive with the details—the clouds, the crucifix, and the passerby. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
