Setinggi-tinggi tahniah kepada seorang jurufoto tempatan Georgetown Penang bernama Jeremy Tan yang telah berjaya meraih tempat ketiga dalam pertandingan Travel Photographer of the Year Contest 2016 untuk kategori Cities.
Memaparkan gambar bangunan tertinggi di bandar Georgetown iaitu Komtar yang sedang dipanah petir, akak berasa bangga sekali apatah lagi akak baru - baru ini pun telah berpeluang untuk makan di sebuah restoran yang terletak di bangunan yang tinggi ini. Haa...kerlas...
Lightning seemingly strikes Komtar Tower, the most iconic landmark of George Town, capital of Penang state in Malaysia. It is symbolic of the rejuvenation that the city, famous for a unique blend of centuries-old buildings and modern structures, has enjoyed in recent years. While many of its old neighbourhoods fell into neglect in the 1990s and early 2000s, UNESCO World Heritage listing in 2008 sparked a transformation, and today, they are all part of a vibrant tourist destination.

|This photo was taken on my last trip to Guangzhou, China. This place is the school dormitories of South China Normal University. When I was hanging around, most of them were taking a break. After lunchtime, they needed to go back to study. Photo and caption by Wing Ka H. LOCATION: Guangzhou, Guangdong Sheng, China|
|Marrakesh, Morocco, is an exciting city for any traveler, but I was tired of walking on the crowded street and being asked for money from local people, so I was looking for a place to settle down. Even though there were a lot of people in Ben Youssef Madrasa, it was still a more quiet and relaxing place than outside. Suddenly a beautiful reflection appeared on the shallow pool when I was taking a rest. Photo and caption by Takashi Nakagawa LOCATION : Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco|
"Lagunas Baltinache (Atacama Desert)"
|I made this photo during my recent photographic expedition in Atacama Desert, in April 2016. I embarked alone on this adventure to find images not yet published of the most arid desert in the world and its contrasts. Despite the Atacama Desert being one of the best places on the planet to do night photography, in my prior research I discovered that there were not many night photos in the main tourist destinations there.

|I was in the Brazilian Pantanal along the Rio Negrinho. I realized that the river, at certain points of the loops, created places where there were many yacare caimans. I saw a yacare sink suddenly, and I immediately looked for the best location to photograph when it resurfaced. The whole thing lasted only a fraction of a moment.

"Wherever You Go, I will Follow"
|It was when I drove back home feeling disappointed with the fact that I had finished the day in vain without any anticipated subject that I heard the joyful voice from the car window like “quack, quack!” There they were: red foxes. Around the end of the winter, they meet the season of love; they care for and love each other enough to make us jealous. Photo and caption by Hiroki Inoue|

"Rooftop Dreams, Varanasi"
It was 5:30 a.m. and I had just arrived in Varanasi, India, off a sleeper train. I got to my guesthouse and instinctively climbed the seven flights of stairs to see the sunrise over the famous Ganges River. As I looked over the side of the rooftop terrace, my jaw dropped in disbelief. Below were mothers, fathers, children, cats, dogs, and monkeys all sleeping on their roofs. It was midsummer in Varanasi and sleeping without air-conditioning was pretty difficult. Can you spot the curry? Photo and caption by Yasmin Mund LOCATION : Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India
|The winter in Inner Mongolia is very unforgiving. At a freezing temperature of minus 20 and lower, with a constant breeze of snow from all directions, it was pretty hard to convince myself to get out of the car and take photos. I saw horsemen showing off their skills and commanding the steed from a distance. I quickly grabbed my telephoto lens and captured the moment when one of the horsemen charged out from the morning mist. Photo and caption by Anthony Lau|
