This Month in Photo of the Day: Photos From the 2009 International Photo Contest

"This portrait was taken in a city called Bundi in Rajasthan, India. This man shone in the setting sun, his skin glistening, his eyes vibrant and his turban matching the color of the old painted wall behind him. I just couldn't let the photographic opportunity pass me by."—April Maciborka
