Gran Premio: Winter Horseman, por Anthony Lau

01GrandPrize

“El invierno en Mongolia Interior es implacable. Con una temperatura de menos de veinte grados con la brisa constante de la nieve desde todas las direcciones, era bastante difícil convencerme a mí mismo para salir del coche y tomar fotos. Al menos hasta que vi a los jinetes de Mongolia mostrando sus habilidades. Agarré rápidamente mi teleobjetivo y capturé el momento”.

Primer premio – Naturaleza: “Allí donde vayas, te seguiré”, por Hiroki Inoue

02NatureFirstPlace

“El romance está en el aire. Era la hora del día inmediatamente después de la puesta del sol. Oí una voz. ‘Dondequiera que vaya, te seguiré’, decía”.

Primer premio  -Ciudades: “Ben Youssef” por Takashi Nakagawa

03CitiesFirstPlace

“A pesar de que había una gran cantidad de personas en Ben Youssef, el ambiente era muy tranquilo y relajante en comparación con el de las calles de Marrakech. Estuve esperando mucho tiempo el momento perfecto para disparar”.

Segundo premio – Naturaleza: “Doble atrapamiento”, por Massimiliano Bencivenni

04NatureSecondPlace

“Fotografía tomada en el Pantanal de Brasil … Cuando descargué la imagen no podía creerlo… La naturaleza sabe siempre damos magníficos eventos, pero a veces es extraordinaria”.

Segundo premio – Gente: “Sueños en la azotea, Varanasi”, por Yasmin Mund

05PeopleSecondPlace

“Llegué a mi casa de huéspedes en Varanasi a las 5:30 am, instintivamente subí los siete tramos de escaleras hasta la azotea (que era  la más alta del vecindario) para ver la salida del sol sobre el famoso río Ganges. A medida que el sol se levantaba miré por encima de la parte derecha del balcón y me quedé boquiabierto con incredulidad.  Había familias enteras – madres, padres, hijos, hermanos, hermana y todos los perros durmiendo en la parte superior de sus casas. Fue a mediados de verano en Varanasi y dormir sin aire acondicionado resultaba difícil”.

Segundo premio  – Ciudades: “Silenciado”, por Wing Ka H.

06CitiesSecondPlace

“Esta foto la saqué en mi último viaje a Guangzhou, China. Este lugar es una residencia de estudiantes de la Universidad del Sur de la China. Cuando estuve dando vueltas por allá, la mayoría de ellos estaban descansando. Después de la hora del almuerzo, tenían que volver a estudiar. Los dormitorios estaban mal y desordenados”.

Tercer premio – Naturaleza: Lagunas Baltinache (desierto de Atacama), por Victor Lima

07NatureThirdPlace

Las lagunas de Baltinache, también llamada Hidden Ponds, son un conjunto de siete lagunas de agua salada situadas en la zona de la Cordillera de la Sal, cerca de San Pedro de Atacama, en la segunda región del norte de Chile, en el desierto de Atacama. Después de mucha investigación, creo que soy el primer fotógrafo en publicar fotos de la noche de este lugar, pero todavía es necesario confirmar esta información”.

Detalles tecnológicos: la foto ha sido hecha en una sola toma. El primer plano estaba iluminado por la luz de la luna.

Tercer premio – Gente: “Vida remota a -21 grados”, por Mattia Passarini

08PeopleThirdPlace

“Un anciana de Kinnaura, un remoto pueblo de Himachal Pradesh, cargando madera para calentar su casa”.

Tercer premio – Ciudades: “Ensueño celeste”, por Jeremy Tan

09CitiesThirdPlace

“Un rayo golpea aparentemente la torre de Komtar, el icono más importante de  George Town, capital del estado de Penang en Malasia. Es un símbolo de la renovación que la ciudad, famosa por una mezcla única de edificios centenarios y estructuras modernas, ha disfrutado en los últimos años. Mientras que muchos de sus barrios viejos cayeron en el abandono en la década de 1990 y principios de 2000, aparecer en la lista de Patrimonio de la Humanidad en 2008 provocó una transformación, y hoy en día, todos ellos forman parte de un destino turístico vibrante”.

Mención de honor categoría Gente: “El gimnasio Muscle Beach”, por Dotan Saguy

10PeopleHonorableMention

“Un levantador de peso levanta una barra cargada con pesas gruesas, mientras que un culturista realiza una parada de manos aérea en el gimnasio “Muscle Beach” en Venice Beach, CA”.

Mención de honor categoría Ciudades: “Dividido”, por Kathleen Dolmatch

11CitiesHonorableMention

“En el helicóptero hacia el sur en Central Park West  se puede ver claramente la división entre arquitectura y el Central Park. La foto fue tomada el 5 de noviembre de 2014, un día antes de mi cumpleaños número 27. El vuelo fue mi regalo de cumpleaños”.

Mención de honor categoría Naturaleza: “Osos en el iceberg”, por John Rollins

12NatureHonorableMention

“Esta foto fue tomada desde lejos, en el mar de hielo de Davis Straight, frente la costa de la isla de Baffin. Esta madre oso polar y su hijos están colocados encima de un enorme iceberg. Para mí, la relativa “pequeñez” de estas grandes criaturas en comparación con la inmensidad del iceberg en la foto representa la precariedad de la dependencia del oso polar en el mar y el hielo marino para su existencia”.

Grand Prize Winner: “Winter Horseman”, by Anthony Lau

01GrandPrize

“The winter in Inner Mongolia is very unforgiving. At a freezing temperature of minus 20 and lower, with a constant breeze of snow from all directions, it was pretty hard to convince myself to get out of the car and take photos. I saw horsemen showing off their skills and commanding the steed from a distance. I quickly grabbed my telephoto lens and captured the moment when one of the horsemen charged out from the morning mist”.

First Place Winner – Nature: “Wherever you go, I will follow you!!”, by Hiroki Inoue

02NatureFirstPlace

“Romance is in the air. It was the time of day immediately following sunset. I heard a voice. “Wherever you go, I will follow you” the voice says”.

First Place Winner – Cities: “Ben Youssef” , by Takashi Nakagawa

03CitiesFirstPlace

“Even though there were a lot of people in Ben Youssef, still here was more quiet and relaxing compare to the street outside in Marrakesh. I was waiting for the perfect timing to photograph for long time”.

Second Place Winner –  Nature: “Double trapping”, by Massimiliano Bencivenni

04NatureSecondPlace

“Picture taken in the Brazilian Pantanal… when I downloaded the CF did not want to believe it…The nature knows we always give magnificent events but sometimes extraordinary”.

Second Place Winner – People: “Rooftop Dreams, Varanasi”, by Yasmin Mund

05PeopleSecondPlace

“I arrived at my guest house in Varanasi at 5:30am, I instinctively climbed the 7 sets of stairs to the rooftop (which happened to be the highest in the vicinity) to see the sunrise over the famous Ganges River. As the sun was rising I looked over the right hand side of the balcony and my jaw dropped with disbelief. Below were families – mothers, fathers, children, brothers, sister and dogs all sleeping on the top of their houses. It was mid summer in Varanasi and sleeping sans AC was difficult”.

Second Place Winner – Cities: “Silenced”, by Wing Ka H.

06CitiesSecondPlace

“This photo was taken on my last trip to GuangZhou, China. This place is a school dormitories of South China Normal University. When I was hanging around, most of them were taking a break. After the lunch time, they need to go back to study. The dormitories were smelly and messy”.

Third Place Winner – Nature: “Lagunas Baltinache (Atacama Desert)”, by Victor Lima

07NatureThirdPlace

“The Baltinache Ponds, also called Hidden Ponds are a set of seven salt ponds located in the area of the Salt Cordillera, near San Pedro de Atacama, in the second region of northern Chile, in the Atacama desert. After much research, I believe to be the first photographer to publish night photos of this place, but it is still necessary to confirm this information. t”.

Tech Details: Photography done in one shot. Foreground was illuminated by the moonligh.

Third Place Winner – People: “Remote life at -21 degree”, by Mattia Passarini

08PeopleThirdPlace

“Kinnaura tribal old women in remote village in Himachal Pradesh carrying big log back home to warm up her house”.

Third Place Winner – Cities: “Celestial Reverie”, by Jeremy Tan

09CitiesThirdPlace

“Lightning seemingly strikes Komtar Tower, the most iconic landmark of George Town, capital of Penang state in Malaysia. It is symbolic of the rejuvenation that the city, famous for a unique blend of centuries-old buildings and modern structures, has enjoyed in recent years. While many of its old neighbourhoods fell into neglect in the 1990s and early 2000s, UNESCO World Heritage listing in 2008 sparked a transformation, and today, they are all part of a vibrant tourist destination”.

Honorable Mention – People: “Muscle Beach Gym”, by Dotan Saguy

10PeopleHonorableMention

“A weightlifter lifts a barbell loaded with heavy plates while a bodybuilder performs an aerial handstand at the Muscle Beach Gym in Venice Beach, CA”.

Honorable Mention – Cities: “Divide”, by Kathleen Dolmatch

11CitiesHonorableMention

“In the helicopter looking south on Central Park West – dividing the architecture and Central Park, on November 5th 2014, a day before my 27th birthday. The flight was my birthday gift”.

Honorable Mention – Nature: “Bears on a Berg”, by John Rollins

12NatureHonorableMention

“This photo was taken far out on the sea ice in the Davis Straight off the coast of Baffin Island. This mother polar bear and her yearling are perched atop a huge snow covered iceberg that got “socked in” when the ocean froze over for the winter. To me, the relative “smallness” of these large creatures when compared to the immensity of the iceberg in the photo represents the precariousness of the polar bear’s reliance on the sea and sea ice for its existence”.
