#3 Terje Kolaas – Pink-Footed Geese Meeting The Winter

"Thousands of pink-footed geese roost in central Norway in spring, on their way to the breeding grounds on Svalbard in the Arctics. Probably because of climate change, they arrive earlier every year and often the ground and the fields where they feed are covered by snow when they arrive. The geese tend to use the same paths, so when waiting for them in the air with a drone, photos like this one are possible."

#6 Phu Khanh Bui – Pray For Souls

"In the full moon of July, as part of the Vietnamese culture, women put on the traditional costumes called "Ao Dai" to join the colored lantern and flower-garland releasing festival on the river to pray for happiness and good luck to their families. May the souls of their dead relatives and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace in heaven."

#7 Henrique Murta – Habitat

"This series is about human architecture rising up from the wild. Nature, in its finest shape, with a human touch that ends up adding balance to the scene. Places where humans live inside dream lands. I am essentially a nature photographer, and the search for pure nature’s beauty has been one of my main life goals for more than ten years. Along this search path, I got surprised a few times by getting driven into a deep state of joy when finding balance between the natural landscape and human elements. That is usually not very common, and when it happens, it is worth taking some time to contemplate. And that is the idea of this series: I would like to invite your eyes to perceive all the elements of these complex compositions, and the way they fit to one another."

#18 Gheorghe Popa – Poisoned River

"This is a detailed photograph of one of the small rivers filled with poison. 'Poisoned Beauty' is a personal project that tells the story of the natural disaster in the Apuseni Mountains, but in a beautifully abstract way. This abstract colorful pattern is created by nature combined with the chemical waste resulted from the copper and gold mining process."
