Orangutan in The Rain by Andrew Suryono, Indonesia

Orangutan in The Rain by Andrew Suryono, Indonesia

“I was taking pictures of some Orangutans in Bali and then it started to rain. Just before I put my camera away, I saw this Orangutan took a banana leaf and put it on top on his head to protect himself from the rain! I immediately used my DSLR and telephoto lens to preserve this magic moment. Image location: Bali, Indonesia”

Timeless Affection by Arief Siswandhono, Indonesia

“Fina (the girl in the picture) is the younger of my two daughters. Fina used to be scared of cat, which was the reason why we decided to adopt two kittens. We wanted Fina to learn how to live with cats, how to hold them, how to care for them and how to treat them as family members to help her overcome her fear. Now we can proudly say she did! Day by day, 7 months passed by and today Fiona and the cats are best friends, and love and care for each other. In this picture I wanted to show how gracefully they’re together in a frame with Leon, one of her babies.”

“King Penguins live in large colonies in South Georgia, a speck of an island in the South Atlantic Ocean and just below the Antarctic Convergence.

“Cube houses (Dutch: Kubuswoningen) are a set of innovative houses built in Rotterdam and Helmond in the Netherlands, designed by architect Piet Blom and based on the concept of “living as an urban roof”: high density housing with sufficient space on the ground level. Blom tilted the cube of a conventional house 45 degrees, and rested it upon a hexagon-shapedpylon. His design represents a village within a city, where each house represents a tree, and all the houses together, a forest.”

Covered by Courtney Colantonio-Ray, USA

“So much of a portrait relies on the face in a photo. But when it is covered, we can see a whole different side of a person through their movement, their posture and even what we think the expression on their face will be when it is finally uncovered.”

 

The Trace of an Ancient Glacier by Miquel Ángel Artús Illana, Spain

The Trace of an Ancient Glacier by Miquel Ángel Artús Illana, Spain

“Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America’s tallest peak, 20,320′ Mount McKinley. What used to be glaciers are now white and blue rocks that contrasts with red, yellow, orange and green tundra of this vast natural paradise. The image is taken in Autumn when the colours multiply and make the landscape truly remarkable.”
