Leading Instagram shots

Mexico Town, Mexico – Axel Alvarado

The colour palette, which includes muted pink hues and vivid violets established from the utility inexperienced of the foreground, is effective in particular perfectly when crowned by the dreamy blue sky, and the still-dimly-lit avenue lamps total the overall result with their warm, golden glow.

Siberia, Russia – Yan-Kei Clare

Why we like it: From the tangled network of ice cracks slicing by means of its lower fifty percent, to the central figures being dwarfed by the towering, craggy rock development, this specialist frame of Siberia’s Lake Baikal is whole of drama. The glistening solid ice attracts the eye towards the vivid white of the snow at the rock’s base, which seems all the a lot more monolithic when performing as a backdrop for the image’s brightly clad (but miniscule) explorers. This is a cleverly crafted shot of nature at its most panoramic.
