March of the coots Andrew George
Netherlands

Nominee

"March of the coots"
The winter at the start of 2010 was one of the first strong ones in years again in The Netherlands. The lake in the local park in Eindhoven where I live was almost completely frozen. It just had snowed. Perfect conditions to photograph these black Coots in contrast with the white snow. I’d observed the Coots for a couple of days already. I’d shot a whole series of photos. All of a sudden I saw the scene I was looking for. They formed a group and started to walk back to the hole in the ice to go back in the water. While they where walking the scene reminded me of the documentary film “March of the Penguins”. Equipment: Nikon D700; Nikkor 70-200 AF-S VR 2.8 type II, ISO800, F8.0; 1/60sec.; handheld.

Australia

Nominee

"Men of the Forest"
After extensive logging and forest clearance for oil palm plantations, Orangutans are now found only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. As these Orangutans descended from the forest canopy to feed, I was drawn to their profiles and their expressions; so human and full of feeling.

Pelican Portrait Nicole McTaggart
Australia

Nominee

"Pelican Portrait"
This photograph was taken at Taronga Zoo’s new Southern Oceans exhibit, where the resident Australian Pelicans (Pelecanus conspicillatus) were resting in the sun. One bird was sitting near the enclosure fence, allowing for an extreme close up, frame filling portrait. There was minimal colour in the photo so I converted it to black and white, emphasising composition and tones.
