A riot of colour: Shortlist for Sony World Photography awards provides a real challenge for the eye

From a smartly-dressed man on the London underground, to dragonflies and a surfer riding a wave at sunset, these are the stunning images all vying for top spot in the world's top photography competition.

The shortlisted images in this year's Sony World Photography Awards have been unveiled, and as usual include a spectacular array of colours and subjects from around the globe.

The collection of pictures on this year's list features everything from historic moments and spectacular landscapes to everyday portraits and detailed close-ups.
