With the deadline hitting at the end of this week, there's just a few days left to enter National Geographic's 2012 photo contest. So far the submissions are, not surprisingly, stunning, and The Atlantic has rounded up some of the most beautiful entries so far. Choosing a single winner is going to be a daunting task.
But, as stunning as they all are, there's always room for improvement. So we encourage you to find a shot you like, and enhance it any way you can think of. Show off your creativity, your Photoshop skills, or your prowess at making animated gifs and throw links in the comments below. And feel free to make us laugh, make us think, or just make us glad for a distraction on a drab and dreary Thursday. [National Geographic via The Atlantic]
