Shadow Boxing

Your Shot photographer Rick Bergstrom watched these boxers train in Old Havana while waiting for the perfect moment. "I was captivated by how they moved in and out of the sunlight, creating shadows while being in the bright sunlight at the same time," he says. "I finally got this shot with the one man in complete shadow, back-lit against the yellow wall, while his opponent was in the sun, his sweaty back glistening in the light."
