A couple relax under blossoming cherry trees during a pleasant spring day at Prague's Petrin hill. WHY WE PICKED IT: The cherry blossoms are like a flurry of snowflakes, and adding the couple to the bottom left of the frame gives the image a sense of scale and context.

A duck swims by a window, viewed from inside Anderson Eye Care at the Riverfront Plaza Building in downtown Grand Rapids, Mich., as The Grand River crests. WHY WE PICKED IT: This is a clever way to shoot flooding while keeping yourself and your cameras dry.
