Traveling to enjoy new experiences can be arduous when you are also intent on taking good photographs—for example, you wish the light was better or you had more time to spend on exploring a subject. Congratulations to all the photographers in this judging. You all managed to make it work.
As a photo editor at National Geographic magazine I gravitate to photographs that capture a “decisive moment” and are free of contrivance. I also look for landscapes that talk to me like good portraits—capturing the personality of the scene with beautiful light, perfect composition and a mood that beckons me there.
There were many photographers that had a nice mix of work and it was difficult to just pick one. This was especially true when they had a nice scene, portrait or lovely landscape. Which do you choose? I thoroughly enjoyed my vicarious journey through everyone’s eyes. To me, you are all winners!

One of the delights of travel is seeing the world in new and different ways. This experience is heightened when the world is seen photographically. THE ART OF TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY features photographs taken in the context of travel, whether in the United States or throughout the wide world. We are pleased to welcome National Geographic senior editor Kurt Mutchler as the juror for this exhibition. Kurt chose 40 photographs for display at PhotoPlace Gallery. He also selected 35 additional photographs for the gallery's Online Annex.
