Caught Special - 59

Participated in the Sony World Photography Awards contest conducted in London recently, second time in three years. It is a very popular and highly competitive contest where several thousands participate from around the world. This year's contest had over 230,000 photographs entered into the competition.

The contest this year had the following nine different categories against which one photo each was to be submitted.
          1. Architecture
          2. Arts and Culture
          3. Enhanced
          4. Low Light
          5. Nature & Wildlife
          6. People
          7. Smile
          8. Split Second
          9. Travel

Though my pictures did not get shortlisted in the contest further, I had selected the top-3 picks from my collection for all the categories that you can see here.

A collage of all the 27 photos can be seen above. To view individual images, go to full view of the images seen below.
