the annual chicago transit authority’s holiday train stars in photographer david sowa’s (@david.sowa ) #whplayers photo. “watching the train light up its surroundings combined with the added ‘layer’ of snow really made it that much more magical,” says david, who waited for about 30 minutes on a parking garage for the perfect shot.

sophie jane (@sophiejanephoto ) captured this photo of her son after a trip to maungauika/north head historic reserve, a former military defense site in auckland, new zealand, with a series of underground tunnels. “my son had been soaking up all the history of the place and was standing inside one of the forts afterwards quietly considering it all,” says the photographer. “the underground tunnels are very eerie, and i wanted to bring some of that feeling to the image. i knew superimposing a reflection of the scene my son might have been imagining would be perfect for adding dimension and telling a story.” #whplayers
