Sea Challenge

Walking on the beach in Aqaba, Jordan, at sunset, Your Shot member Ulrich Lambert saw teenagers jumping from a pier into the Red Sea. “I shot from the pier using a wide-angle zoom because I wanted to capture not only the diver, but also his audience, as it was a kind of challenge between them,” he writes.
