Over 4,200 beautiful portraits of people around the world were submitted to the final monthly photo contest of 2012, but only 10 images made the cut. Voting ends January 21, so vote now and vote often for your favorite shot.

Your votes will determine which of these semi-finalists will win a Swann SportsCam, a mini camera & DVR combo housed in a rugged waterproof case.
