Carlos Duarte (Carlos Duarte) took this photo during one of his travels. He said: "This picture was taken in the valley of the Omo (Omo) in Ethiopia. I and my guide came to the village Arbor (Arbore). Talking with the warden, I looked to the right and saw us approaching brown tsunami. It was amazing: women tried to protect themselves from a sandstorm, wrapped in shawls, and I just closed my eyes. Deciding that the storm had passed, I opened my eyes and saw a boy sitting on an old tree. I hastened to make his portrait - behind him already billowing clouds next sandstorm ".

This photo was taken Royzens Nicolas Baudin (Nicolas Reusens Boden) in Sweden. He said: "I shot in natural but controlled conditions. Some pictures can not be made on the nature - or it would require a lot of time and money, which is why photographic workshops are held in strategic locations and attract all those who wish to learn the basics of photography (lighting, camera work, composition, etc.) . Seminar participants are given the opportunity to take pictures like this. Although I controlled the situation, this frame is not staging. I led a seminar in which we photographed tree frog, known as the red-eyed tree frog (agalychnis callidryas), Costa Rica. Suddenly, the frog jumped on the branch where he slept this huge beetle-titanium ... I was all prepared in advance, I just changed some settings and pulled the trigger ... the rest is history ".

They behaved somewhat perplexed, because with them was not their mother. They looked around, and then I saw their mother, who came up to him as if nothing had happened, and they calmed down. The moment was beautiful, and I am very happy that I was able to shoot it ".
