Underwater cleaning | Photograph by David Alfaro // #Sponsored by @headshouldersusa // “For the fifth year in a row, we have joined a small group of divers to perform underwater cleaning in the Los Cobanos protected area in El Salvador, with the purpose of removing all the fishing nets that remain stuck in the coral rock reef,” writes #YourShotPhotographer David Alfaro. “We have managed to remove more than 60 pounds of weight in over one hundred meters of nets, which impacts the area by its phantom fishing. Small actions, big changes.” // Together we can help stop the flow of plastics into our oceans. @headshouldersusa and @herbalessences provide support and are proud sponsors of @WorldOceansDay.

    Team Unity | Photograph by Richard Rickart ( @richardrickartphoto ) . "Before taking the field for last Sunday’s NCAA exhibition match vs the Lipscomb Bisons, the University of South Alabama Jaguars Women's Soccer Head Coach, Richard Moodie, spoke with his team urging them to play in a unified manner and with purpose," writes #yourshotphotographer Richard Rickart. This photo was selected for the August 16, 2019 edition of our Photos of the Week series. — “Great use of layers and rules of thirds to document this coach as he is surrounded by his team. Your focus is spot on and I love how you used a slightly shallow depth of field to keep focus on his plane of the image while leaving details in the foreground.” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas ( @kemcnicholas )

    Top Shot: Out of the Dust | Photograph by Shobha Gopinath ( @shobhakgopinath ) . “All 5 species of rhinos are either critically endangered, vulnerable or threatened. When the world’s last male white rhino died, something of mankind died with it too,” writes #yourshotphotographer Shobha Gopinath. “For years they have been hunted for the supposed medicinal value of their horn. When will man learn to share this planet with our fellow creatures? This image of the baby rhino with its mother [in Cape Town, South Africa] standing still in the midst of a swirling sandstorm seemed like a perfect metaphor of their vulnerability.” This photo was selected for the Daily Dozen on August 16, 2019. — Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads.
