Neal Holmes and his partner take a dip at Vancouver Island, Canada.

A common criticism of the selfie is that the photo doesn’t really transport the viewer anywhere–save for the filtered, idealized “reality” that the portrait-taker wants viewers to see. And generally speaking, that’s a really boring destination.

The same cannot always be said, however, about travel selfies. Love them or absolutely hate them, these photos have taken the travel photography world by storm, and in June BBC Travel invited readers to submit their own travel selfies for review.

The image above was chosen as the competition winner, but all of the submissions are worth an ogle:
