Capturing the perfect moment sometimes involves planning, but most often it is about being at the right place at the right time. When Our World in Focus announced The Perfect Moment Contest, they received entries from 50 countries. They write: “We were astounded by the variety, ingenuity and quality of entries in this year’s contest. Open to all genres, we were pleased to see images of landscapes, people, wildlife and more.”
There are plenty of photo competitions around. Some are free, some are paid. Some offer prizes and some only bragging rights. Our World in Focus is a site that aims to be cheap to enter, but still offer a worthy prize.
Their latest Landscape photography competition got some amazing entries, but the winners are nothing short of breathtaking. Hit the jump to see the top photos and get some insights on why each of the winners was selected.
