Which of these pictures is worth £76,000? Winning entries for the world's biggest prize in photography
Incredible photographs chronicling breathtaking vistas and scenes from all over the world are to go on display in London later this month.
An exhibition showcasing the winning and shortlisted images from the third Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA) will open at London's Royal Geographical Society in late September as part of a global tour.
It is the first time the awards have visited the UK. The theme of the competition this year is 'Beauty of Light'.

Those are some incredibly good pictures.
Some are spectacular, others pretty pedestrian, IMHO.
They are, I discount the middle east pictures because they are painful at this time in our country, but I would vote for any other the others. That canoe picture was haunting.
I looked at the pictures before reading the article, and was puzzled by the large number of Arab photos—which are, in fact, very beautiful.
Then I read the article. Not surprising that there are a number of desert photos, since this contest is for the Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award.
Oh, well. Could be a much worse use of that money.
I’m surprised that £76,000 is the biggest prize in photography!
Here is my photo of a polar bear eating vanilla ice cream in a snowstorm.
others pretty pedestrian, IMHO.
Gotta agree. I like the guy in the canoe, but the rest are the usual photographic ‘cliches’.
The wrinkled face, the ‘costumed natives’ etc.
The only one missing is the Praying Hands...
My picks: the first one, with the sand dunes - and the Aurora Borealis in Iceland.
The b/w of the guy in the canoe is a close runner-up.
It was composed by (although not photographed by) Ray Nagin, of Chocolate City, LA in 2004.
My favorite was the boat with the flamingos, but they were all good photos.
All I can say is where da women?
