24 Best Photos From National Geographic Travel Sense of Place

VIRALPRIME.COM – Daniel Westergren is the Director of Photography from National Geographic Travel, he need to look through all the photos submitted to the Sense of Place assignment. It’s not an easy task as told by Daniel in NatGeo website.

There were so many beautiful shots of beautiful places! When choosing pictures for the final story, I tried very hard to stick with the instructions I gave you: The most compelling shots should have something extra, they must make the viewer feel something.

This is the constant struggle we have when choosing pictures for our magazines and online stories. Especially in the Travel genre it’s easy to pick the pretty pictures and forget about saying something deeper. This means I must look beyond technical perfection and choose the pictures based on the feeling I have when looking at them. Sometimes pictures like this are a little more messy-looking, but not always. The best feeling for an editor is finding those gems that have great composition, lighting, and emotional appeal.

Below are 24 photos selected by Daniel, Hope you all enjoy it.
