Global-wide photography 2011 winners

December 22, 2011
National Geographic announced their 2011 global-wide photography contest awarding not only a warm financial prize to its three winners but world-wide publication in their magazine.The winners were taken from digital submissions on three categories of people, places and nature while judged by three National Geographic photographers.

The water flinging dragonfly photo titled Splashing, was captured by Shikhei Goh, a photographer in Indonesia’s Riau Islands while they were both caught in a sudden downpour.

It was described as a ‘very striking macrophotography image that rose to the top of the nature category for me because of its originality, beautiful light, rare action in a close-up image, as well as its technical perfection,’ according to judge Tim Laman to the National Geographic.
