Where in the World? A Google Earth Puzzle

Looking at the world via Google Earth offers striking images of the diversity of our planet and the impact that humans have on it. Today's entry is a puzzle -- part 2 in a series (part 1 here), in which we challenge you to figure out where in the world each of the images below was taken.

So have a look at the images below, make your guesses, and see your score at the end. Good luck!
