Dutch photographer Michael Echteld took his winning photograph while in Italy. He explained: 'This image was taken on the inner court of the Pallazzo Publico in Siena, Italy. While looking straight up, the patterns and symmetry in the architecture are wonderfully amplified. The asymmetrical position of the Torre del Mangia nicely disrupts the symmetry. The lighting for this shot was difficult. Five different exposures were taken and blended and balanced in post processing.'
