Above: The subject’s name is Busaba, a well cared for Indochinese Tigress whose home is at Khao Kheow Open Zoo, Thailand. I had taken many portraits of Busaba previously and it was becoming more and more difficult to come up with an image that appeared any different to the others. Which is why I took to observing her more carefully during my visits in the hope of capturing something of a behavioural shot. The opportunity finally presented itself while watching Busaba enjoying her private pool then shaking herself dry. In all humility I have to say that Mother Nature smiled favourably on me that day! - Ashley Vincent (Nature, Winner)

Above: The Battle of Flour- This particular battle takes place during the traditional parade of Città della Pieve. The three Terzieri challenge each other with blows of bags of flour in a spectacular and chaotic battle in which fly in a few minutes quintals of flour. The air quickly becomes saturated of flour and in some moments is difficult to breathe. - Andrea Cittadini (People, week 8)
