In Focus: Winners of the National Geographic Photo Contest 2012

These eleven images were chosen from more than 12,000 entries submitted by 6,615 photographers from 152 countries. National Geographic was kind enough to allow me to share the winning photographs with you here, from four categories: Travel Portraits, Outdoor Scenes, Sense of Place, and Spontaneous Moments.

I gave a 5 minute Ignite talk at the 5 year anniversary Triangle Tweetup held at @Bronto Software in Durham NC on May 10th 2012. Here are the slides. 

Thanks for the support and energy for the past 5 years of making the Tweetup something special in the Triangle.
