And what makes good drone photography?

"A good drone photo is a picture that you immediately identify as a drone photo: it is taken at a low altitude, near the target of the picture, and you must see on the picture that it is impossible it has been taken with another device than a drone" said Mr Jarret.

Dronestagram organises the annual International Drone Photography Contest with the support of National Geographic. You can find all the winning pictures here.
