  • Thanks for the recognition. I am a German photographer and have been measuring Asia since the early noughties. In the broadest sense, I am interested in cultural and biodiversity, more precisely animism, dogmas and rituals. The time of the first lockdown I spent in Sumba Barat, Indonesia. A number of pictures honored here were taken there. I thank the jury and would like to express my kind respect to everyone who has been honored here. All the best from Germany, Wolf

  • Very simple and almost one-color composition that is pleasant to the eye, and surprising once you grasp what you are looking at.

  • Trying to impress with a soft and gentle song, if looks like. Unusual expression for a large, strong animal like this.

  • Hello ! My name is Bettina and i`m a german photographer. I feel deeply honored and i`m very happy to get part of this wonderful gallery. I shot this picture at the zoo. After this gorilla had eaten, he sat on the grass for a while. He was watching me and making funny grimaces. That was the perfect time for this shot. (Canon 5D Mark IV, 600mm, f/6.3)

  • Quite beautiful to look at, well-balanced tones and colors. The excitement for the window to open seem to be something we share with the plant.

  • Many thanks to the judges for the comment on the photo and its inclusion in the Mark of Excellence. I'm honored. With a small space for the roots, this plant presented a strong impulse in search of light, wrapping the iron grid in a soft hug. It is no longer a window with a view, but the window is the view. The camera I used was the Nikon DF with the pre-ai Nikkor 35mm f2.8 lens. Miguel Bartilotti - Brazil
