Photo: Enjoying time at home by Ekachai Prasertkaew

In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, we decided to make the theme of our latest 500px Photo Quest “Women driving change.” Photographers all over the world sent in their best photos of bold and strong women.

Whether it was a photo of a science professor or volunteer wildlife firefighters, the portraits captured women making positive impacts on the world and inspiring others.

The winner was selected by our guest judge, Gabriela Tulian (read our interview with her to find out what it takes to be a successful lifestyle photographer). Her favorite was Ekachai Prasertkaew’s photo “Enjoying time at home.”

Gabriela Tulian explains what drew her eye to this image: “A simple scene beautifully composed and enhanced by the softness of the light coming through the foliage of the trees. We can clearly appreciate the power of light creating a magical composition. An idyllic moment between a mother and a daughter.”
