6 Stunning Photographs from 2016 International Travel Photography contest

 Travel photography is appealing and absolutely stunning. These Travel pictures you are about to see indeed define the mantra "Pictures speak a thousand words". From different parts of the world, Travel photography has only one language, detail and substance( My opinion)


The photograph above was taken by Portuguese photographer Joel Santos who took the overall crown and was named Travel Photographer of the Year based upon portfolios he entered in both the Land, Sea, Sky category and the Journeys & Adventures category. He took the image of this fisherman in Ghana on the  Lake Bosumtwi in Ashanti

This is my favourite(This picture says a lot from poverty to disease. The irony in this picture is glaring).

 The image you see above of an elderly man smoking was taken by Chinese photographer Ruiyuan Chen, who submitted portraits of the impoverished Yi people living in China’s Daliang Mountains. This picture helped him win the Mankind Portfolio category.


My Second Favourite

Another British photographer, Craig Easten, won an award for his Land, Sea, Sky Portfolio. He took the stark photograph below of a Buddhist monk walking along West Kirby Marina Lake in Merseyside, England.  

Michele Palazzo from Italy won the Cities: Architecture & Spaces category for her imposing image of New York’s Flatiron building during a raging snowstorm.

A Best Single Image was also chosen in the Mankind category, and this award went to British photographer Jeremy Woodhouse. His winning photograph, taken of an old woman cutting grass to feed her livestock, was captured in Coltesti, Romania.

Many of the honorable-mention photographs were quite spectacular, including this image by Martin Siering of Germany. He made this shot of the erupting Batu Tara volcano on Indonesia’s Komba Island for the Land, Sea, Sky category.
