Some “Featured Entries” and “Editors’ Pick” from the Smithsonian’s 17th Annual Photo Contest

The Solitary Tree of Lake Wanaka
The iconic solitary tree at Lake Wanaka, South Island (NZ). A picture of inanimate stoical quality that’s awe-inspiring. I hope this amazing tree survives the onslaught of attention from being famous, so may future generations can enjoy this natural landmark.

Rush Hour in Ho Chi Minh City
Got stuck in a traffic jam at one intersection in Ho Chi Minh City, normally it is after working time about 5pm to 7pm. So many motorbikes with several vehicles, but no higher overpass are reasons that make traffic jams in this city.

Unreal
Thousands of Volkswagen and Audi cars sit idle in the middle of California’s Mojave Desert. Models manufactured from 2009 to 2015 were designed to cheat emissions tests mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Following the scandal, Volkswagen recalled millions of cars.

Street Scene

Henri Cartier-Bresson, credited as a pioneer in street photography, gave us the concept of the “decisive moment” in image making. Of his transition as an artist from painting to photography, he said, “I suddenly understood that a photograph could fix eternity in an instant.”
For our Street Scene 2019 Photo Contest, we want to see your best photographs that capture a candid moment, an interaction of people, places, forms and light that tell a unique story.

Modes of transport

Transport is largely seen as something practical and often gets overlooked for its aesthetic qualities. But boats, cars, trains, planes, and more, can be visually outstanding in their own right; from the engineering to the strategy that goes into their operation – not to mention the natural beauty of the environments they travel through.

Capture the City

Why not urban-ify your take on the traditional landscape? Focus on the lights and lives of a modern environment.
Shooting at night requires you to either boost up the ISO (then deal with any noise-related issues in post-processing) or to shoot longer exposures. If you’re going with the latter, you are going to need a tripod or similar support to help. Personally, I use a lightweight carbon-fibre travel tripod or a Gorillapod for my after-dark shots, but I have seen people improvise, resting cameras on walls and using bean bags to angle the lens. Try to expose for the highlights as you would in any other shot. You might even want to bracket your shots to capture as much detail lurking in the shadows as possible.
