‘Life in Macau’ … Macau is probably better known as a gambling city near Hong Kong, but very few know that it is the most densely populated city in the world – over 18,000 people packed in a km square. High rise residential buildings are everywhere in town. Picture: Antonio Leong, Portugal.

‘African Mystery’ … The photo was taken during my last trip in Kalahari (Kgalagadi Park, South Africa), last September. The Kalahari lions are famous for their black mane. After a long drive through the park, I came across two of them, sharing a springbok kill. A violent fight took place between the two to get the best pieces. They ultimately headed towards the nearby waterhole, where they got a rest during the sunset, which gave me the perfect opportunity to capture their legendary beauty.
