RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY 
Four out of five Olympic rings are seen lit up during the opening ceremony of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, in this February 7, 2014 file photo.

This image is a great example of the cliche 'always expect the unexpected'.

Two days before, at the Olympic opening ceremony rehearsal, I had seen that the Olympic rings were supposed to open from a small, flower-shaped ball and then explode in flash of extreme brightness. The massive changes in light required a quick estimation as to how to adjust the exposure, so every photographer was anxious, knowing what was supposed to come next.

I had just reduced my ISO and increased my shutter speed when I noticed the top-right ring was not forming like the others. So I took a few photographs, still anticipating the next stage. But no. Nothing. The incomplete Olympic symbol just hung there before disappearing completely.

Did I manage to correctly adjust the camera settings for the unpredicted dull Olympic ring? Thankfully, you see the answer before you. Needless to say, it was the talking point of the opening ceremony, and became one of the most memorable images of the Sochi Olympic Games. - David Gray

RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY 
Pro-European integration protesters take cover from water sprayed from a fire engine at the site of clashes with riot police in Kiev in this January 23, 2014 file photo.

Everyday protestors moved up to the barricades, made from burnt buses and cars, to clash with the police. It was winter, cold, and police used water hoses to turn the streets in front of the barricades to ice.

The protestors kept moving up to the police positions to throw molotov cocktails and the police kept driving them back with rubber bullets and water hoses.

This was happening for many days. Molotov cocktails were everywhere - in the air, being thrown at the police and behind barricades ready to be used. The flag of Ukraine was seen everywhere, and one song was sang many times a day - the Ukraine anthem.

To shoot pictures every day in a bulletproof vest and helmet, while walking among the piles of burnt tires and avoiding rubber bullets was a challenge.



I was surprised by the strong desire of the protestors to change something in their life, how they helped each other - many people, including the very old, brought warm clothes and hot food to them. - Vasily Fedosenko REUTERS/Vasily Fedosenko (UKRAINE - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY 
A male red deer with antlers covered in bracken, walks through undergrowth in Richmond Park in south west London, in this October 3, 2014 file photo.

Although Richmond Park is only 3.69 square miles (9.56 square kilometres) wide and 650 deer graze there during the autumn deer rutting season, I spent nine hours on foot with my 500mm lens as well as shorter optics following the haunting and spine tingling barking of the male deer. Trying to find strong images of animal behaviour combined with attractive light and backgrounds.

The mist had long gone and the sun was dipping lower to the horizon when I found the male in the photograph in the undergrowth. I had followed him for roughly an hour before this frame, and an hour afterwards, hoping he would either get an even more impressive head-dress, pick a battle with another male or chase some potential mating partners...but eventually the light went and so did I shortly after. I think the bracken stuck amongst the deer antlers gives the picture a certain appeal by adding a little humour to a natural history photograph, with a hat-like appearance, plus the tongue out looks a little as if the deer is licking his lips! - Toby Melville REUTERS/Toby Melville (BRITAIN - Tags: SOCIETY ENVIRONMENT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY 
A cradle left behind by Syrian Kurdish refugees lies at the Turkish-Syrian border near Suruc, in this September 27, 2014 file photo.

A crossing point along the Turkish-Syrian border frontier was normally a hive of activity, with wailing children and families desperately trying to carry whatever they could manage across the dusty terrain.

To my surprise on this particular day, the refugee collection didn't start. Bewildered, I started to look around me. My eyes fell on an empty baby's cradle and I thought: "How is it possible for someone to leave behind such a basic, but important, thing for a baby? Were the owners in a hurry? Was there no space in the bus or truck?" As I photographed the cradle I thought how lonely and sad it seemed. For me, it signified a kind of hopelessness. If its owners had felt hope, perhaps they would not have left it.
I took four images using a 24mm wide-angle lens and photographed the deserted border area in the background aiming to illustrate the desperation the refugees feel, and the harshness of the environment, where baking sun can turn to driving rain in an instant. - Murad Sezer REUTERS/Murad Sezer (TURKEY - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST CONFLICT SOCIETY IMMIGRATION TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY 
Armed pro-Russian separatists (R) escort a column of Ukrainian prisoners of war as they walk across central Donetsk in this August 24, 2014 file photo.

It was an awful sight: A column of jaded and haphazardly dressed people walking along the street surrounded by armed rebels. Citizens were shouting curses and throwing eggs at them. The column was followed by street sweepers washing the road after the prisoners. The scene looked like a farce or copy of the parade of German prisoners in World War Two in Moscow in 1945.

I think this image perfectly shows the negative emotions of conflict: weakness, devastation, shame, fear on one side and spite, aggression, rage and desire for revenge on the other.

It reminded of a quote 'History repeats itself, first as a tragedy, second as a farce'. - Maxim Shemetov REUTERS/Maxim Shemetov (UKRAINE - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

Ifeoma Nwoye of Nigeria is carried away by her coach after she lost her women's freestyle 55kg wrestling semi-final at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, in this July 31, 2014 file picture.

The picture was shot during the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. In the image, the wrestler's coach is carrying her away after she lost her bout. It was not immediately clear to me whether she had been injured in the contest or whether she was simply upset at having lost. The Nigerian woman lost and was knocked out of the competition by the eventual gold medallist who easily overpowered her. There was a moment of serendipity as I followed the coach and wrestler out as the games logo formed a halo around her head which helps the viewer focus on the expression on her face. The whole moment was over in a second, and the tournament carried on.
If anything I suppose the picture shows that sometimes in sport a moment of crushing disappointment can be just as engaging as a moment of victory.

Mahindra Moto3 rider Bryan Schouten of the Netherlands fights with compatriot Kalex KTM Moto3 rider Scott Deroue (R) after they crashed during the German Grand Prix at the Sachsenring circuit in Hohenstein-Ernstthal in this July 13, 2014 file photo.

During lap 26, towards the end of the race, I was standing behind the tire barrier in the first bend waiting for the pack of riders. I decided to make this lap the last one before changing position to shoot the winner crossing the finishing line further up the track.

When the pack approached, two riders came skidding out of the pack, losing contact with their bikes and coming to a halt in the gravel traps a mere two metres away from each other.

It was impossible to make what had actually happened as the incident that led to the crash was obscured by the other riders. But Schouten seemed to be sure who was to blame. He jumped to his feet and started to lay into his compatriot, Scott Deroue, kicking and punching his helmet. After initially blocking the attack somewhat coyly, Deroue became equally furious and responded in kind. The two had to be separated by several medics and race attendants who struggled to bring the brawl to an end. - Thomas Peter REUTERS/Thomas Peter (GERMANY - Tags: SPORT MOTORSPORT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

A masked pro-Russian protester sits on a chair as he poses for a picture inside a regional government building in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine in this April 25, 2014 file photo.

On March 3, a couple hundred pro-Russian demonstrators stormed the Donetsk regional government building after clashing with police who were guarding the main entrance. They successfully entered through a side door, and in the end made it to the second floor where the parliament sits. Unrest continued to spiral in Ukraine and the following month separatists declared a "People's Republic of Donetsk". Two months after these initial attacks, protestors were still inside the regional government buildings and masked men guarded the barricades. I asked to take a series of portraits of these men. I saw a massive chair underneath a neon light and I picked my lens, adjusted the light, and people began to pose in shifts. Each subject was relaxed, and struck whatever pose suited him.

Later, they asked with interest how people in Europe see the situation in Ukraine and wanted to know if anyone supports them, and what will happen in the end. They seemed a bit scared. I didn't have a good answer to their last question. - Marko Djurica

Pro-Russian protesters attack a pro-Ukranian protester during a pro-Ukrainian rally in the eastern city of Donetsk in this April 28, 2014 file photo.

Around 500 people were waving Ukrainian flags and shouting anti-Russian slogans. After 30 minutes they started a protest march, but soon afterwards pro-Russian protesters turned up with baseball bats and sticks and clashes broke out.

I followed pro-Ukrainians who ran away to small alley, but as there was no way out they got trapped. After some 30 seconds, pro-Russians came and started beating them. For me the image was important because it shows how easily people who were living together for years can turn violent overnight because of politics.
Moments before I took this picture I remember I was hiding behind a tree because stones from both sides were flying around. I remember one stone hit Baz Ratner, our photographer who was covering the event with me. The biggest challenge while shooting this image was to not get beaten, because people were extremely violent and they didn't care if you were a journalist. - Marko Djurica

Actress Angelina Jolie cries at the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial in Potocari in this March 28, 2014 file photo.

I was covering Angelina Jolie's visit to the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial and Cemetery, commemorating the brutal murder of 8,000 people in 1995, when she started to cry. Afterwards, she was due to visit rape victims' homes in the town of Zenica, so many photographers fled to the entrance to capture her departure. But I stayed on the floor, shooting, and was one of the lucky few to see her tears.

Capturing this image was a challenge as there was a lot of travelling involved for very few photographs. The weather was hot, there was a lack of organisation and I was often bothered by colleagues. But this image had a great impact when the whole world wrote about her visit to Bosnia, this photograph was especially powerful because of her tears.

Angelina's tears and the photos I took meant a lot to me. I was happy because the whole world will hear about what happened in Srebrenica. But I was also sad, because of the reason for her arrival and because Srebrenica was mentioned solely in the context of war. - Dado Ruvic REUTERS/Dado Ruvic (BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - Tags: ENTERTAINMENT CIVIL UNREST TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY HEADSHOT)

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy sits on a bench with his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in Paris, in this March 23, 2014 file photo.

I was covering the first round of the French municipal elections in Paris and went to a local poll station in a school where Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy were due to cast their votes. Afterwards they exited through the courtyard to avoid the crowds outside and realising the door was shut, sat together on a bench while waiting for the concierge to fetch the key.

I had stayed behind in a school corridor to send out the photos I had just taken when I spotted the open door. I got inside the courtyard where there were two other photographers. Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla saw us, so I got only around 15 seconds to take their picture before their security staff stood in front of them.

Local women watch armed men, believed to be Russian soldiers, assemble near a Ukrainian military base in Perevalnoe in this March 5, 2014 file photo.

During Russia's occupation of the Crimean peninsular in Ukraine, masked men without insignia had appeared at Ukrainian army bases and important transport hubs all over the peninsular. Although they declined to say who they were, their Russian accents, military kit and license plates left little doubt that Moscow had sent them.

The locals believed they would protect them from attackers from Kiev and consequently welcomed the Russian soldiers like liberators, bringing them flowers and food and flocking to wherever they set up base as if a travelling circus had come to town. These two women had clearly dressed up for the occasion and flirted with the young men in uniform, who were visibly grateful for the distraction to their sentry duty.

Eventually, Russian soldiers became less anxious to be seen by foreign media chatting with their Ukrainian counterparts across the compound walls. - Thomas Peter

Smoke rises over Syrian town of Kobani after an airstrike, as seen from the Mursitpinar border crossing on the Turkish-Syrian border in the town of Suruc in this file October 18, 2014 file photo.

A U.S.-led military coalition has been bombing Islamic State fighters who hold a large swathe of territory in both Iraq and Syria, two countries involved in complex multi-sided civil wars in which nearly every country in the Middle East has a stake.



The Turkish military and police had declared the Turkish-Syrian border area a "military zone", which limits the ability of the press to move around.

In these days of modern warfare, the weaponry is more powerful than that in the old days. So all of my colleagues and I have to be doubly careful to ensure we do not end up in the line of fire, as positions of Kurdish YPG fighters and IS militants change quickly.

For all those reasons, to stay away is the only solution at the moment.

We ended up on hills about 2km (1.24 miles) away from Kobani using very long telephoto lenses, often more than 1000mm, to get a peek into the city while listening to the sound of war and smelling its scent.

Sometimes you see a shadow of a fighter hiding behind a building and more often you see the massive impact of heavy airstrikes.

It is a bit strange sitting there with lenses I usually use for sports photography alongside people from the area, who come to the hills to see what's going on. They bring binoculars and make tea - making it almost seems like a tourist attraction. - Kai Pfaffenbach REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach (TURKEY - Tags: MILITARY POLITICS CONFLICT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

A man is arrested by security as he tries to slip under the dress of actress America Ferrera (3rd R) in Cannes in this May 16, 2014 file photo.

I was covering the stars' red-carpet arrival for the film screening of "How to Train Your Dragon 2".

Suddenly Vitalii Sediuk, a Ukrainian journalist also known as a red-carpet prankster, tried to stick his head under actress America Ferrera's netted skirt.

No doubt feeling fabulous in her beautiful couture gown, the moment was clearly ruined for Ferrera.

I had only ten seconds to realise what was happening and take the shot. Security rapidly dealt with the culprit amid shocked looks from Ferrera and co-star Cate Blanchett. After a flash of appearing red faced and confused, the actress continued the red carpet walk as if nothing had happened.
