  • I had this particular frame in mind hence I waited for long hours until I finally got this dream shot. The main challenge in getting this frame was the shooting level.

  • We can hear the wheels spinning in the wet surface in this one. Also, we can’t tell who is who, and till they reach the finishing line it doesn’t really matter in this game.

  • Si tratta di una "classica di primavera"... La Milano-Sanremo! La corsa ciclistica più conosciuta che viene corsa il sabato dopo il 19 marzo. Quest'anno il tempo non è stato clemente e la pioggia ha accompagnato gran parte del percorso. Al passaggio sotto "la torretta" di Savona, le nuvole basse e la pioggia, mi hanno concesso l'uso di un tempo relativamente alto per poter fermare la scia colorata degli atleti che sfrecciavano verso Sanremo.

  • Dramatic rescue work it looks like, with water even on the lens. We like the unique perspective as seen from inside the burning building.

  • Elegant capture with overview and balance. It makes us feel part of the game, even it is inside a building not visible from the outside.

  • Hi, My name’s Sam and this shot was from a road trip which took us from England to Bornholm (a Danish island) and back which I took with my wife and kids over two weeks last summer, 2017. The diver in the photo is my mate Tim, whose family also took the road trip. He’s a keen swimmer and wanted to get better at diving, so if any opportunity arose, he was there on the diving board. It was quite a magic time of day, late afternoon, we’d been driving around looking for somewhere to swim and we found this camp park with this secluded bay where families were playing, swimming, just hanging out.

  • Playground in color. Perfect composition and the right moment makes this photograph an excellent display of what enthusiastic childrens minds can make of a not very interesting or inviting concrete construction.

  • Futuristic photograph that reminds us of the 1980’s music scene as well. Our mind goes like the lines, many different ways!
