Results are in for the second annual NatGeo Travel Photographer of the Year Contest, for which judges considered more than 15,000 entries from travelers in 30 countries for awards in three categories: nature, people and cities.

CORRECTION: A caption provided by National Geographic initially misidentified the location of the marble caves shot by Clane Gessel. The image is from Patagonia’s General Carrera Lake.
