“I had the idea of shooting this particular performance a while back, but never found the time or place. This was perfect. After a few takes things got a little weird. Two people came by to play some tennis on the other court. As they got closer they had no idea what was happening on my end. They seemed very confused watching me just lying on the ground and making weird holding positions. They didn’t know whether to play or call for help. When I was all done, I showed them the somewhat final result and both of them said Ohhhh! I get it”, Martin Sanchez.
The 2nd Place of category “People” belong to “Waterlily” by Helios1412. “A woman harvests water lilies in a pond in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam”, Helios1412.

The 2nd Place belong to “Dawn on Mercury Tower” by Alexeygo. “I was sitting on a bench at the square near Moscow International Business Centre in search of a beautiful reflection in the mirror windows of Mercury Tower. While on the flight, I saw industrial climbers. I liked the way their work looked from that perspective: they seemed to wash the city itself, not just the building’s windows”, Alexeygo.
