Congratulations to Monique van Genderen with this image entitled 'Twins in the Dutch Dunes'.

Monique says ''Wow, thanks for choosing my picture for third place.''

''On the picture you see my niece Hanne and my nephew Thomas. They are twins. Ever since they are born I make a new picture of them when their birthday is coming up. On March 18 they will turn 8 and my sister thought they would not be interested in a new photoshoot anymore, because that probably isn’t cool anymore. But I would have never guessed that my nephew was the one to request another photoshoot. This actually wasn’t the picture he choose, he choose a picture where he was standing very cool with his legs crossed and looking really cool in the camera. Little detail, his twin sister was not in that picture!! J  

That picture was not suitable for their new birthday picture off course. But this one is. I really love the fact that they are absolutely not focussing on me but on the high sand dunes they we’re running of. This picture really makes me happy.  

We particularly choose the time during sunset with an “almost” clean sky. The light is so beautiful when the sun sets.  

Picture shot at ISO 200, 57 mm, f6.3, 1/800''
