Siena International Photo Awards edisi 2016 yang berpengkalan di Siena, Itali menawarkan €1,500 (lebih kurang RM7,420) kepada setiap pemenang bagi 11 kategori yang dipertandingkan.

Ia telah menarik hampir 5,000 penyertaan jurugambar dari 130 negara yang menyertai pertandingan anugerah foto ini. Ia merangkumi subjek alam dan manusia yang meliputi kategori, alam semulajadi, sukan, senibina dan lain-lain.

Saya terpesona melihat gambar-gambar hasil bidikan 11 sang juara. Ia begitu dramatik dan mengagumkan dalam memaparkan kehidupan masa kini. Ia sememangnya memberi seribu satu makna dan buat kita berfikir sejenak tentangnya.

1. Monochrome

Tajuk: A Man Feeding Swans In The Snow
Lokasi: Poland
Jurugambar: Marcin Ryczek

“This photograph was taken in Krakow, from the Grunwald bridge. The nature-created contrast of white snow and dark water, separated by the straight line of the waterfront, serves as a reflection of the Yin-Yang symbol which represents opposing yet complementary forces.”

2. Warna

Tajuk: Phang Rang Fishing Net Making
Lokasi: Vietnam
Jurugambar: Danny Yen Sin Wong

“In a small village in southern Vietnam near Phan Rang, a woman wearing a typical cone hat is creating a fishing net in their traditional manner. The manufacturing of handmade nets is still a typical Vietnamese activity for women, which they carry on while their husbands are out fishing.”

3. Senibina

Tajuk: Warp Speed
Lokasi: Tokyo, Jepun
Jurugambar: Mike Hollman

“I took this shot while traveling to Tokyo on the Yurikamome Line, which takes its name from the common black-headed gull that populates the bay of said Japanese capital.”

4. Sukan

Tajuk: Artic Urban Skiing
Lokasi: Tromsø, Norway
Jurugambar: Audun Rikardsen

“A friend skiing at night, descends a 10 meter high clifftop in Tromso, Norway. The challenge was quite demanding, because the night was much darker than it appears in the photo. So much so, that it was impossible to see where one might land. The image is the result of a long exposure and the use of a specific flash pointed to capture the subject during action.”

5. Hidupan Liar

Tajuk: Sharing Resources
Lokasi: Tromsø, Norway
Jurugambar: Audun Rikardsen

“During winter in northern Norway, large biomasses of herring have overwintered in fjords during three to four dark winter months in recent years. This has attracted hundreds of whales and fishing vessels. The killer whales have learned the sound of the boats when they haul their herring bag nets and get attracted to the boats in hopes of an easy meal of leftover herring. A single exposure where Audun has used a self-made underwater housing.”

6. Alam Semulajadi

Tajuk: Sensazioni, Etna In Eruzione
Lokasi: Cesarò, Italy
Jurugambar: Giuseppe Mario Famiani

“This image shows the magnificence of erupting magma, ash and gas, during the first days of December 2015, which rose to a height of several kilometers above the summit of Mount Etna.”

7. Kembara

Tajuk: Strawberry Greenhouses
Lokasi: Nazilli (Aydin), Turkey
Jurugambar: Leyla Emektar

“To take this shot, I had to climb a relief, which allowed me to include interesting, colored greenhouses located near Nazilli. To make the picture more interesting, I waited for the moment when a Turkish peasant who was working with the strawberries entered the frame.”

8. Pelajar

Tajuk: Ofelia
Lokasi: Mexico
Jurugambar: Krishna Vr

“Ofelia, Ofelia I feel something is missing since you went away. Now all my thoughts are drowning, my words are less than before. Everything became blue but you.”

9. Wain

Tajuk: Joy Of A Farmer
Lokasi: Romania
Jurugambar: Gianluca De Bartolo

“A Romanian farmer shows his happiness after the harvest in Maramures. The population of this region still maintains a strong connection to the land and still carries out many agricultural activities manually.”

10. Photo Of The Year

Tajuk: Sardine Run
Lokasi: Afrika Selatan
Jurugambar: Greg Lecoeur

“During the sardines’ migration along the coast of South Africa, all marine predators are looking for sardines! I was lucky to be at the right place at the right time to photograph their capture.”
