Rhythm in the Red Square

Igor Ivanko, a photojournalist from Moscow, Russia, knew there would be fireworks and a band at Moscow's International Military Music Festival. "I drew this picture in my head in advance," he says. After he found the best angle, he framed the shot—with a slight tilt—to include the full bursts of the fireworks. This photograph was featured in the November 2016 issue of National Geographic magazine. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
