Talking about the award winning photo, Tran Kien said he took it while making a tour in Cinque Terre, Italy with his wife and two friends. “We rented a car in Rome and drove to Cinque Terre. At sunset, we arrived at a small town. On the beach, watching people doing stunt sports, I saw a boy climbing to where I was standing and made a nosedive from a height of roughly 25m. I was lucky to capture the moment in the sunset when the light and the action were idyllic.”
