‘Moon silhouettes’ by Mark Gee (Australia). This is a deceptively simple shot of figures silhouetted against a rising moon. By photographing the people on the observation deck from a great distance, the photographer has emphasised their tiny scale compared with the grandeur of our natural satellite. Close to the horizon, Earth’s turbulent atmosphere blurs and softens the moon’s outline and filters its normal cool grey tones into a warmer, yellow glow.
