YOUR SHOT | ngm.com/yourshot READERS' CHOICE • Water Worlds A droplet framing a fish, a river teeming with people---water is the key to all life. It's also a building block for some great pictures. So take your best shot of the wet stuff, or document some different element, then send it our way. Every month this page features two photographs: one chosen by our editors, one chosen by our readers via online voting. For guidelines, a submission form, and more information, go to ngm.com/yourshot. EDITORS' CHOICE Debasis Roy Asansol, India While transferring fish from one bowl to another, science tutor Roy, 27, was inspired. He composed this scene--- a baby guppy sustained by a single droplet, cradled on a grass leaf atop a wooden stool---then put the fish back. Alankar Chandra New Delhi, India On his way to take a predawn bath in the holy city of Haridwar, Chandra, a 25-year-old business-school graduate, climbed a footbridge and captured a timeless sight: Hindu pilgrims spiritually purifying themselves in the sacred waters of the Ganges.
