China Blue and the Great Move
Cormoran fisherman Matty Karp (Haifa, Israel) Photographed April 2007, Yangshu, China
A great migration Romeo Starcevic (Vinkovci, Croatia) Photographed January 2009, Kenya
These are two of my favorite photographs from the Smithsonian Magazine's 7th Annual Photo Contest. In Cormoran fisherman the silhouettes in the mist look like a stage backdrop. More dramatic effects with silhouettes are seen in A great migration. You can enlarge the pictures by clicking on them.
You can see many beautiful photographs by the winners and finalists by visiting Smithsonian.com .
