“His face was the first thing I noticed,” Koraweski says, “so expressive and beautiful in it’s own way. It was like an open book. You could almost read his life story from the wrinkles.”Michał Koralewski

2nd Place, Photographer of the Year
“After the first bird landed and I saw the shadow on the white wall behind it. I knew this was a great image to be captured. Now it was just a case of operating the iPhone properly and finding the best composition.”David Craik
3rd Place, Photographer of the Year
“The couple looks like they don’t need anything else in the world. I also found the romantic, vintage feel very entrancing. The two looked as if they could be coming back from a movie set.”Yvonne Lu
