The picture was taken in Calakmul, México, with the high speed technique, using three flashes, two for the subject and one for the background. I spent around 18 hours sitting and waiting for the hummingbird to feed on that specific flower. After many atempts I was finally able to get the picture that i was looking for. The hummingbird is a migratory species that reproduces in canada and the United States, and during migration reaches the south of México and central América.
Carpentry is an ancient trade of A.C. that in our postmodern era struggle to prevail in one of the oldest neighborhoods of my city Guadalajara. In Santa Tere, Don Manuel, has been his carpenter all his life and he shares his knowledge with the new generations. He, like other carpenters, seeks that this trade does not disappear. He is proud of this ancient trade.
- Рейтинг фотографов по странам и городам строится на основе 3-х лучших фотографий автора и их относительной позиции в каждой отдельной номинации. Рейтинг в номинации "Мобильная фотография" учитывается в меньшей степени для формирования рейтинга. В списке показывается одна фотография автора с лучшим рейтингом.
- В списке опубликованы только работы которые прошли 2-й этап голосования.
- The rating of photographers by countries and cities is based on the three best photos of the author and their relative position in each separate nomination. Rating in the nomination "Mobile Photography" is taken into account to a lesser extent for rating formation. The list shows one photo of the author with the best rating.
- Only those photos have been published in the list that passed the second stage of voting.
More recently, we have made an improvement and now we have a new feature - "Series uploading." Even now, you can download from 3 to 10 photos in the series, united by a common idea. Voting for the series will take place separately from other series in their nominations. vote principle remains the same as for single photos. At the moment, series uploading is available for nominations: "Children's Photography", "Wild Animals", "Staged Photography" and "Reportage photo". This feature is available for any improved account.
