Glenn Flothe's dramatically-lit photo of trumpeter swans was submitted to the OP Your Favorite Places gallery. The swans were photographed in Moose Pass Alaska where they make a stop during their annual southerly migration. Flothe used his Canon EOS 7D to take the photo.
I select a Photo Of The Day every day. I choose the images from the various OP galleries including Assignments, Your Favorite Places and all of the OP Contests. Also, for each issue of the magazine I go through the Assignments galleries and choose a few to be featured in The Best Of Assignments in print and I select a weekly winner to be featured on the OP home page. To get your photos into the running all you have to do is submit them.
