  • "The Turkish Steps, 'Scala dei Turchi,' is a white cliff in Realmonte, Sicily, made of a soft limestone and a blinding white marl. Natural erosion has created steps on the cliff face, making it look soft and sinuous, like a 'big meringue covered with sprinkles.' Only after shooting this image, while watching it on a bigger screen, I noticed a newlywed couple in the frame kissing for their wedding photo shoot at the edge of the cliff," says photographer Placido Faranda. </br></br> 2018 Sony World Photography Awards -- Open, Landscape & Nature

  • An aerial view of Glacial River in Iceland. "While crossing the bridge, I noticed some pattern in the water and wondered how it would look from the sky. I stopped the car at a turnout after crossing the bridge and flew my drone to capture this image. I included the bridge and the car to give an idea of the scale. This river flows to the ocean and becomes part of the sea," comments Manish Mamtani. </br></br> 2018 Sony World Photography Awards -- Shortlist, Open, Travel

  • Klaus Lenzen explains, "The picture was taken in summer 2017 from 35 individual images of swimmers at the triathlon in the Dusseldorf Media Harbor. I was able to take a picture of them from above, while the athletes crossed a pedestrian bridge capturing their very individual 'breathing techniques.' I was inspired by the work of Andreas Gursky, therefore I took the individual images with the highest possible sharpness. That enables me to display or print the overall picture in large format." </br></br> 2018 Sony World Photography Awards -- Shortlist, Open, Enhanced
