Crow of Lviv
Author: Jack Savage (GB)
Location: Lviv, Ukraine
Description: This Gothic inspired piece is inspired by the beautiful city of Lviv, whose churches and architecture cast a spell over me whilst visiting last year. An image that lets Dostoevsky meet David Lycnch in the 1940's era of film noir processed through my trusty vehicle of Photoshop CC.

Description: The Tuileries Fair hosts many attractions. Access is free so it's a wonderful place for a street photographer to spot very different people. In one of the attractions, children played in inflatable transparent plastic balls in a small pool. Their parents stayed around the pool taking pictures, and so was I. I spent quite some time circling the pool, taking multiple photos, and this one is my favorite. I had just bought my first Leica camera a few days before and started to shoot in 28mm after doing so in 35mm for years. So this picture to me is an important leap in evolution.

In order to complete this work on Gypsy culture and to develop a strong empathy with it, I chose to live with them for some time.

Location: Trincomalee, Sri Lanka
Description: Due to the civil war, for decades nobody has fished in the waters around Sri Lanka. This created an unintended marine reserve which flourished with marine life, including sperm whales like this one. Now that the war has ended fishers seem to be making up for lost time. How long this whale stronghold will remain is unknown.
Majestic Freedom: White Stallion
Author: Bev Pettit (US)
Location: Arizona, USA
Description: White Andalusian Stallion photographed in Skull Valley, Arizona. He was having fun kicking and running around in a large area where he had been released after being kept in a small stall. His friskiness showed his personality and free spirit as he ran and reared. I loved the form shaped by the muscles in his neck exemplifying his beauty.
