Winning photos from our readers.
During a semester studying in Spain last year, TAYLOR MILLER, 20, of rural Colby, KS, found himself repeatedly drawn to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, near where he was staying. "It was so inspiring," he recalls. "And because it's so big and a pilgrimage cathedral, you can visit while mass is going on." Miller, a junior at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, majoring in Spanish and journalism, managed to shoot this high-contrast photo of worshipers without disturbing anyone's prayer. Tech info: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 EF-S Canon lens. Exposure, 1/60 sec at f/4, ISO 400. Converted to black-and-white in Adobe Photoshop 5.5.
