What the judges said:

"Marcio has captured a spectacular vision of plant life in the cerrado, displaying the beautiful flowers of Paepalanthus chiquitensis, stretching out on countless filaments towards the first light of the rising sun. It is artistically and technically brilliant, deploying superb use and understanding of equipment, post-capture processes, colour and exposure. It has the ability to make us feel novelty and wonder, as if experiencing plant life on this planet for the very first time.

As ecosystems such as the Brazilian cerrado are under threat, this image urges us all to document, understand and protect our vulnerable landscapes, with even greater passion."

Managing Director of International Garden Photographer of the Year
