Finalist: The Summer Kite Festival in Lincoln City, Ore., by Christine Lybarger of Indiana, Pa. "The world record was broken for the number of giant octopus kites flown at one time -- 21 -- in 2008," when this photo was taken, says Lybarger. The judges admired the image's "fun, energy and great color, evocative of summer at the beach. You can almost feel the wind blowing on your face." (Christine Lybarger, via USA Today)
