It would be great if you can visit their blogs and appreciate their awesome photography skills with some upvotes.
However, the winner is only one and that is for me picture posted by @fjmb86 with the following entry:
The Dead Valley Merida, Venezuela. Legend has it that in this valley a man died as a result of the cold many years ago. That is why it is called Valle El Muerto due to his death, in addition his body is buried in that valley adorned with stones and a cross. It belongs to the Sierra de la Culata National Park of the State of Merida, Venezuela.

@vinceboisgard Australian Monday entry:
Waking up very earlier while the weather still cool to be right at the top of Kings park from which the view over Perth is just magnificent. It look like the sky is burning under the pink - orange coloured flames announcing another hot day.
@jpphotography Tuesday of Antarctica and World´s Oceans entry:
Sunset in New Zealand. This pebble beach was located just a stones throw from the campground I was staying at. The sunset from this beach on New Zealand's South Island is among the most beautiful that I have ever seen.
@axeman African Wednesday entry:
Rich and stunning sunrise colors at Hurghada, Egypt. Morning low waters made visible very nice sand patterns and some stones around, which made the general composition much more interesting. Wide angle lens and low shooting point.
@photovisions European Thursday entry:
One of those places in Norway which everyone should visit and experience - the way up the mountains called Trollstiegen - south from Åndalsnes in Rauma area. 11 hairpin bends brings us up to 852 m npm. On the top we can stop by visitors center and a steel walkways with great viewpoints on the whole road and the valley - seen on the photo. Next to the road we can see big waterfall Stigfossen by the old, stone bridge. One of those places where we can see real dramatic landscape of beautiful Norway.
@justdentist North American Friday entry:
Half Dome @ Yosemite National Park. During our honeymoon we stopped at Yosemite for 3 days. Awesome experience to visit this hilarious beautiful place on heaven earth. Nature at its best. The famous Half Dome, featured in one of the most recognized photographs ever taken by Ansel Adams, is not also a nice object to photograph but also a famous climbing stop for the best in the word.
