Apprentice | Photograph by Duc Bui Viet (@duc_rong)
.
“At a broken television repair shop, the grandson watches his grandfather step by step. It seems like he loves this job,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Duc Bui Viet. “This is a photo I like very much because it reminds me of the time when life is still difficult, and technology has not developed as it is now.”

“What struck me right away was the use of light in this image. Also the framing within the TV is excellent! You really set a tone with this image, I love that the grandson is looking over the grandfather’s shoulder studying as he repairs a TV. Learning the trade by just watching as it happens right in front of him. Great work with this photograph.” — @natgeoyourshot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams)

Los Angeles, California | Photograph by Chris Valle
.
“This is a tilt-shift shot taken as my plane approached Los Angeles International Airport after returning from a week-long work trip to San Jose,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Chris Valle. “I was glad to be home, but was about to get right back into traffic on the 405 at 4PM. Nothing like a little perspective to make this massive chunk of concrete feel like your home town.”
—
“I’ve seen tons of tilt-shift photography in my life, but this one I thought was so cool. First, a great idea to capture this image from your plane window. Second, I love that our focus is drawn into the center of the city. The rest of the foreground becomes an interesting sight of patterns.” — @natgeoyourshot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams)

Pretty in Pink | Photograph by J. Miller
.
“Finding a Pygmy Seahorse is a huge challenge, they blend in so well with their surrounding environment,” writes #YourShotPhotographer J. Miller. “I was able to find and capture this photo with the gorgonian coral in full bloom. Many Pygmy Seahorse photos have the coral closed because the photographer or guide threatens the coral. This was a rare capture indeed.”
—
“Congratulations on such a special capture J. I can imagine just how challenging this scenario would have been. Being only about ¾ of an inch, they are one of the smallest of all species of seahorses in the world. It requires a lot of patience and a mindful approach — both are essential skills for documenting nature and wildlife. With your beautiful capture, you have showcased how a mindful approach pays off when documenting the underwater world.” — Photographer and filmmaker Michaela Skovranova (@mishkusk)

Ice Skating at Chasm Lake | Photograph by Jason Hatfield (@jasoninthewilderness)
.
“Rocky Mountain National Park was one of the first national parks I visited as a kid,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Jason Hatfield. “It helped foster the lure I have for the mountains and motivated me to move to Colorado 10 years ago. I now have the ability to adventure the depths of Rocky Mountain whenever it calls, and capture rewarding experiences like ice skating below Longs Peak.”
—
“Wonderful composition here Jason. I love the dark blue tones of the ice and how the red jacket that the young skater is wearing, and how that pops right off of the page. Also, the skate lines in the ice is a nice detail as well.” — @natgeoyourshot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams)
