Here are readers' best photographs from the past year!

We invited readers to share their unique, original photographs from this past year with us -- here's the next set of responses!

First up we have this image from Anurag Jain, who says, "I was on the road on August 15, 2010 in Bangalore. I saw these little girls selling flags and badges of India near MG Road. I watched them for a long time, working and making conversation with each other. I was happy that Independence Day brought some cheer to them by providing a few earnings. But I was also sad that after 60 years of Independence, we have to see our children like this. They will probably remember Independence Day only as a day when they can sell badges and flags."
