A strong moment, not only of the sunset and Doha in the background, but having an interesting figure in the foreground to create a relationship between the elements.

When I saw that shot by Raul Montecinos of the three shadows on the broken-down wall and the Qatari girl walking through, I was really happy with the shot. When Raul said that he was making a composition of the three shadows and then saw the girl walking into the frame and waited to make the picture, well, I was just floored. It takes a lot of experience to develop a sense of anticipation in photography, that you can see what is going on in the frame and you can choose the moments to press the shutter. Raul was making images at this point, and not just taking pictures.

It is a beautiful frame, using the window of the boat and catching a sense of the sea.

Wonderful framing of the city with the ornate doorway of the mosque.

A beautiful moment catching the pigeon mid-flight- with the lines of the building adding to the composition.

Wonderful seeing here- using the reflectiveness of the walkway to see the minaret of the mosque and the figure of a person in traditional garb.

I love the clean composition and the moment where he caught the swinging climber in just the right moment.

I like the simple composition, and the blue background, how we focus right on the subject- and it was right in our theme of people and nature.
