3rd place Human Connection Award: People & Planet Ocean
Radim Klimes Australia
"For me, this image was all about capturing the aesthetic power that the ocean allows humans to embody," says photographer Radim Klimes. "I found it important for the primary focus to be free from distraction and thus decided to shoot in an overcast setting and edit in black and white. This is my personal interpretation of how the ocean allows for elegance in a unique and powerful way."
