Capturing the beauty of the world through travel photography is what we’re all about here at 500px. And if the photos on the 500px Popular feed are any indication, you all love to take photos when you travel as well! Because of this, our Photo Quest sponsor Brand USA came to our community last month, and we asked you to share and submit photos that will inspire their audience to travel to the USA! These travel photos need to evoke a story behind the image, plus give viewers a sense of wonder and curiosity to discover more of the USA. And, man, did you deliver with some incredible imagery.

Today, we’re pleased to announce the winner of this photo challenge, selected by Brand USA. And the winning photo is…

Los Angeles Moon by Sebastian Feuerherm on

“Looking down onto Los Angeles from the Griffith Observatory,” Germany-based Sebastian Feuerherm shares in his description. With his Canon EOS 6D, he captured this winning photo while, “the night has just begun and the moon is still low.”

Congratulations, Sebastian Feuerherm! You won a VISA Gift Card worth $1,000 USD courtesy of Brand USA. We will be in touch with you soon so we can send your prize.
