Not Your Average Photo Contest

National Geographic's International Photography Contest continues to draw thousands of photos from users around the world, and the submissions are anything but amateurish. Photos can be submitted between now and Oct. 31, 2009 and winners will be announced in early December. Here's a selection of some submissions from this past week. Enter your photos at, or download some of the popular images as wallpaper.
