Title: Come to Debbie...FISHY FISHY...

Photographer: Goh Donald

Date taken: August 2011

Location: Bishan Park, Singapore

Behind the scenes: I brought my daughter and nieces to this little stream near our home on a sunny evening for fun fishing. The sun was good and it cast a strong reflection on the water as my niece attempted to fish. I love the sheer concentration on her face when I took this shot to reveal her silhouette reflected on the waters.

Title: Flying High

Photographer: Justin Sculli

Date taken: June 2010

Title: Porto

Photographer: Gerard McCarthy

Date taken: April 2011

Location: Douro River, Porto, Portugal

Behind the scenes: This photo was taken on the southern banks of the Duoro River in Porto, on the first sunny day of my April sojourn through Europe. After a bitterly cold London winter, I was stoked to be able to finally walk around in my T-shirt and thongs. I love the way that the expired film has created a purple tinge across the photo, really emphasising how alien the sunny skies felt after three months of winter darkness.

Camera used: Canon EOS 3000 with expired 35mm film

Title: The Legend of Gatbawi

Photographer: Eric Erickson

Date taken: October 2010

Location: Mokpo Harbour, Ch'ungch'ong-bukto, South Korea

Behind the scenes: This picture looks across the Mokpo Harbour to the walkway that takes you past the Gatbawi rock formations that tell the story of a son who stood vigil at his father's grave until he, too, died, leaving the two bamboo hats that eventually turned into rock.

Taken on our day off from setting up and officiating at the 2010 South Korean Formula 1 Grand Prix, this was the start of a two-hour walk around the harbour taken in scenery that was both exotic and beautiful.

I like the picture for the overall beauty of the scenery; the texture of the rock against the clean sharp line of the walkway and reflection of the still harbour water; the boat in the foreground, which places the location with the Korean characters; and the memories it evokes.

Camera used: Olympus E-300

Title: Dusty Oodnadatta

Photographer: Caity Noonan

Date taken: August 2010

Location: William Creek, South Australia

Behind the scenes: As part of the Great Australian Outback Cattle Drive, we departed Anna Creek Station in the early morning and finished in William Creek. There was a deep calmness while riding along the Oodnadatta Track in the crisp morning air. With only the sounds of the slow moving herd and the occasional cracking of whips, the clear and endless horizon created a feeling of sheer freedom.

Camera used: Canon IXUS 130 IS

Title: Through Stone Pillars

Photographer: Stephen Paice

Date taken: February 2011

Location: Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Behind the scenes: Within the walls of the temple, Cambodian Children dress in traditional wear to make money for photos. As I walked past I noticed a good angle though the countless pillars that make the temple. Manual focus on I got three good shots before they moved. I like the depth and the candid nature of the photo. The best photos of people are always when they don't know they are being photographed.

Camera used: Canon EOS 550D, Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC

Busselton, Western Australia

Title: Busselton Jetty @ Sunset

Photographer: Alex Feeney

Date taken: March 2011

Location: Busselton, Western Australia

Behind the scenes: I was lucky enough to travel to Busselton with work recently and couldn't resist a visit to the most famous icon in the area. Busselton Jetty is the longest timber-piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere at a length of 1.8km. It really comes alive when the sun starts to go down over the Indian Ocean and all the fishermen come out to try their luck at catching some dinner. During the day, especially during the summer holidays, it can be very popular with the local kids for seeing who can do the best to jump into the water below.

Camera used: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ25

Title: The Olgas

Photographer: Jeremy O'Meara

Date taken: June 2011

Location: The Olgas (Kata Tjuta), Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory, Australia

Behind the scenes: I was on a boys week with a mate from Sweden. We were checking out the area around Uluru and ventured over to The Olgas. From the lookout, and with the view of Uluru (to the far right), I couldn't possibly not take a photo. In fact, this was a set of photos compiled into a panoramic.

Camera used: Canon PowerShot S2 IS
