Aung Chan Thar of Myanmar won the prize for Best Mobile Phone Photo with his picture “Sunset,” which captures a fleeting moment of ethereal beauty as the sun dips below the horizon and casts a golden glow on a nearby pagoda.

“That evening, the clouds were overcast, and it was raining, so I could not see the sun. Fortunately, just before sunset, the sun rose through the clouds and mist, creating a beautiful evening. Due to the sun, the pagoda became brighter, and I captured this moment,” Aung recalled.

Storm-chaser Jamie Russell of the Isle of Wight, United Kingdom, captured the public’s attention with his photograph “Departing Storm Over Bembridge Lifeboat Station.” It featured a double rainbow against a gloomy sky and, less obviously, the color reversal in the lighter, pastel “shadow” rainbow.

Jamie came close to missing out on the winning photo. He explained that he had traveled west to east across the island, following storms hoping to photograph incredible rainbows. He said, “I reached Bembridge as the final shower departed, and in a panic, waded into waist-deep water, fully dressed, just to compose this scene!”
