These 22 excellent pictures have been shortlisted for the Sony World Photography Competition 2012 and no doubt they all are super fantastic.

If i were the judge of this competition, it would ave been really difficult for me to choose the best one as every picture is great in its own way and deserves to win something.

These spectacular images include a spectacular array of colours and subjects from around the globe.It includes historical moments, beautiful landscapes, detailed close up and everyday portraits.

This year 112,000 entries were recorded from 171 different countries.

An eye catching picture shows the tranquility of Baltic Sea while another one show a stunning sunset at Lake Tekapo in Southern Canterbury, New Zealand.

'Looking at the vast collection of shortlisted work across the categories, is truly gratifying this year', says Astrid Merget who is the creative director of the awards.

'Within the Professional awards, the bodies of work are beautifully presented and distinctive, whilst in the Open categories, the single snapshots are diverse and demonstrate excellent skill within the amateur market. '

I would like you to go through these stunning and amazing pictures and give your diverse comments.
