There are astonishing moments in everyday life that are worth capturing. Positively, there is such thing as photography in our world. Outputs coming from different lenses bring life stories into eternity and moments which have reminisced time to time. It can also be a source of international connection and understanding.
This year, the National Geographic Society department in charged with travel engagements initiated a competition wherein almost 18,000 unique moments took part. The world and its wonders have been justified, again through this endeavor. Let's look at some of the photos which made a huge societal impact, and appeal among the competition judges:
This is the "A Celestial Visitor" by George Martin from the UK. It is a perfect photographic account of a rarely showing celestial event, Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy shower!
Armen Dolukhanyan's eyes were very particular. Why? You will rarely see a couple who happens to be policemen in the same point and the same time.
Norway unbelievably has this lush night sky. This work is none other than "Sumo Waggle Adventure" captured by Arild Heitmann.
Endless fantasy in White Frost, only in Pestera, Romania. Folks. Its's Eduard Gutescu's very own "Romania, Land of Fairy Tales".
"Dog Walker" masterpiece submitted by Johanna Siegmann, captured the dogs and Leslie, the one who works to maintain good dog lifestyle
Christopher Martin's entry "Winter Work" tells a story of a worker in Alberta, Canada who melts the ice around airplanes to avoid flight complications.
"Highlanders" is a practical face of a meticulous agricultural activity. Poland natives in this photo are about to do hays, maybe for their livestock, or for them to sell.
One night at the eastern Italian Alps, a sauna shot was made. Apparently, Stefano Zardini named it "Sauna in the Sky", and it came out as one of the meritorious hits in this year's photographic competition.
Stefane Berube was in shock because their photography team was finding all day for rhinos to shoot with, but they were unfortunate. Unexpectedly, the morning after, their subject they're looking for became easy as 1-2-3.
The entry which garnered 2nd Prize in Contemporary Issues was shot by Ronghui Chen. The image (in red hue) is overly filled with particles that bear possible serious health problems to workers.
Cosmin Bumbut's photograph entitled "Intimate Room, Targsor Penitentiary, Romania 2011" explains that with the recently enforced policy in Romania's prisons, a detainee with a partner can experience two hours of being with him/her, in spans of either every month or every three months, depending on the situation.
Landing at Second Prize, General News Category, Massimo Sestini, an Italian contender told that this is part of the campaign 'Mare Nostrum' which brought more than 100,000 refugees from Libya.
As admitted by the photographer, giving up happened before this. "Silk Skies" created by Jamen Percy, Australia never fails its audience to feel hopeful, even when blue.
Intense! Why not? An Oman-based camel racing is better at being that.
The first time I looked at it, it's more of a painting, but it's actually not. Maybe, it's magic as a visual media, as well as the depth of its message drove this at the top.
Anuar Patjane Floriuk, the photographer, narrated that whales were photobombers. I know that now, she's million times thankful to the whale because it brought her gold.
