  • Thank you so much for this incredible recognition! My name is Angee Manns and I live on a farm in central Missouri with my husband and son. This image was shot right after a storm on the farm and I associate a wonderful memory with it. My 10-year-old was having the best time running and jumping in the mud puddle. I shot this with a Nikon D610 and Sigma Art 35mm lens. It was processed in Lightroom. Thank you again! I can't tell you what this means to me.

  • A portrait of a girl that is not exactly in focus, could also be an old photo.....timeless somehow. It is really interesting to look at. Captured at the right time. Spontaneous and honest. Congrats to this beautiful portrait!

  • An emotional picture in black and white. The contrasts between the light and the shadows are quite strong. But this attracts the attention to his facial expression, and this is the essential part of the photo. Well done!

  • A unique moment captured in black and white. Their facial expressions transfer a certain tension. That makes this picture really interesting to me. The tones are really good, great contrasts, beautiful light. A great picture!

  • Hi, My name is Marcus Clarke from Oz. living in Tottori city, Japan. It`s the least populated prefecture in Japan. Notice the other people at the beach.. Photo was taken with Olympus E-M5 m1, 12-40 2.8 lens PP was done with lightroom and color efex pro. The sky had nice clouds but the photo was a little bland. Tried a little too hard with PP I went to beach with the idea of capturing their mad dash to the beach. As kids are unpredictable, for some reason they took a detour to jump the fence.

  • I took this photo of a boy on Legian beach, Bali. The sun was setting behind him and he was enjoying the last light of a day at the beach. Capturing him at the height of a jump helped create a surreal image. This was taken with a Fujifilm XPro1 with Fujinon 18-55mm f2.8 lens.
