You can watch exceptional photography and amazing photographs from the National Geographic Traveller Photo Contest. More than 17,000 Global entries had come in from various categories as Travel Portraits, Outdoor Scenes and Spontaneous Moments.
The first place was won by AnuarPatjaneFloriuk for his underwater click of the divers swimming very close to the humpback whale, in an island of the Western Coast of Mexico. The winner says that it was not a planned shot.
This happened when he was clicking photos near the head of the Whale, and all of a sudden, the whale began to swim towards the divers. When the flow and composition seemed right, Anuar said that he clicked this photograph. Both amateur and seasoned photographers can submit photographs for the competition which is currently in its 27th year.
