For more information, go to ngm.com/yourshot. • EDITORS' CHOICE Charley Elmaga Riyadh, Saudi Arabia "Please forgive me, my darling." That's what Elmaga envisions the kneeling matchstick man (at right) saying to his lady, perched atop matchboxes. Inspired by photography lessons, the 42-year-old Elmaga, a secretary, spent two hours getting this shot. READERS' CHOICE Sarah Jones Durban, South Africa Surf photography is Jones's hobby, and these wave riders were a real catch. "Often the dolphins leap out of the wave back to the sea---a beautiful sight," says the retired nurse, who lives nearby.
