Every weekday, Photofocus curators share a great photograph taken by one of our readers. Every month we highlight photographs in the genres of architecture, portrait, outdoor, street and a flex category that changes each month. In November, we’re highlighting your amazing photographs that combine the land and sea. In December, we’re looking for your best photographs that showcase magic!

As dedicated writers for Photofocus, we come across a lot of photographs. The photographs we choose every week have not only impressed us, but they’ve also inspired and invigorated, giving us new ideas on how to approach our own work — and we hope that does the same for our readers, too. Our curators explain what they love about each image they choose for the week, offering quick thoughts to help each of us become more aware of what’s in an image and why it’s successful.

Every Sunday, the Photofocus Photographer of the Week is selected from the week’s five photographs highlighted as the Photographer of the Day. Whether an image speaks to you or not, we value your thoughts, comments and look forward to further engaging in discussion.
