Yuen uses a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera because it can handle harsh conditions like rain. It also creates beautiful distorted perspectives.


He uses Adobe Camera Raw to adjust the tone and color of the photo. Next, using Adobe Photoshop, he highlights the main attraction of the picture. He also uses vertical panoramas.

Yuen always wanted to apply for the contest and judge his skills through high standards.


Hornung, the winner of the year's photograph, is a human resources consultant based in Germany. He has a side job as a freelance photographer.


A trip to Ireland inspired him to photograph landscapes. He enjoys traveling within Europe to capture the beauty of nature.




Kai feels happy to have images that are his own, images that he found.

This contest is a remarkable opportunity for every landscape photographer.


As the annual entries grow, so does the range and diversity of locations and styles.

According to Peter Eastway, landscape photography could either highlight global challenges or create an ideal landscape of the imagination. It is up to photographers to choose.


Ultimately, images that communicate something gain more attention in the competition.
