2. Micha Koralewski Kozieg owy Poland 1st Place
You can find a striking moment when you least expect it if your eyes are open to it. Michal Koralweski came across one of those moments as he strolled through a market square in Warsaw and spotted an accordionist playing traditional Polish songs. As soon as he saw the bearded musician he knew he had to take the photo. His face was the first thing I noticed Koraweski says so expressive and beautiful in it s own way. It was like an open book. You could almost read his life story from the wrinkles. He was able to get the image he wanted without disturbing the rich atmosphere by snapping the shot with his iPhone. Koraweski who resides in the old and beautiful Polish city of Pozna? tries to pick up inspiration everywhere he goes. Even when he s walking the same streets every day he ll look for new angles intriguing lighting or distinct moods. He s also interested in using his art to illuminate the emotions of people around him. Although he s busy with two demanding jobs and three energetic children he keeps his eyes open and ready to find the next captivating image.
3. David Craik Surrey United Kingdom 2nd Place
The only restriction on a photographer is the photographer s own imagination according to David Craik. This philosophy shines through in his photo of Starlings that had come to snatch the crumbs off his table at a coastal caf? in the United Kingdom. While a photo of birds may seem ordinary the compelling image Craik created is astonishingly unique. After the first bird landed and I saw the shadow on the white wall behind it he explained I knew this was a great image to be captured. Now it was just a case of operating the iPhone properly and finding the best composition. Craik s experience as a wildlife photographer showed him that you can rarely force a photo to happen. Patience is key and can pay off in enormously rewarding ways. Some may think I m mad he said but one of the most exciting things about wildlife photography is the waiting. His inspiration often comes from compositions shapes colors emotions and subjects he hasn t experienced before. He s also inspired by the work of other photographers. For him it s not about re creating the same images but rather imagining an entirely different photo that conveys the feeling he just experienced.
4. Yvonne Lu New York United States 3rd Place
It s all about those unique and sometimes surprising moments along the journey for Yvonne Lu who captured a quiet yet captivating image of a couple on a train. She noticed the pair as she travelled along the Hudson Valley River on her way home to New York City. Lu was taken by the beauty of this scene just a few seats away from her own and silently snapped the shot. The couple she explains looks like they don t need anything else in the world. I also found the romantic vintage feel very entrancing. The two looked as if they could be coming back from a movie set. She relies on the iPhone to capture moments like these because it lets her take pictures quietly without disturbing her subjects. She also loves the ability to post her photos to social sites like Instagram and share them with the world instantly. Lu whose Chinese name is Yichieh is a Taiwan born fine arts photographer who currently resides in New York.
