Judges Comment

A picture that is calm and full of energy at the same time. The composition supports that feeling when you look at it. An exotic picture from far away!

Photographers Comment

Thank you very much for this Mark Of Excellence award! I shot this picture in Tokyo during the Grand Sumo Tournament, using a Canon 6D, 2000iso, 220mm, f5.6, 1/400. I kept walking around the arena trying to capture the spirit of this multi-contrast ancient national sport: intense and calm, rapid and measured, force and grace. - Victor Mesny.
