Here's what the jury has to say about this photo:

@michal_vavro's flashed up photo had us all wondering what the story behind it is. Is he trying to catch something or mocking someone in the middle of a heated argument? Either way, it perfectly captured the classic "surprised" look!

Runners-up:

Credits: zoepanayi, photos-for-locals, melissafro, kwiat7, strangebutrubbish, meitads, moreira, dumao, alcastan & jmcedo

More Photos from the Submission Box:

Lomographer @michal_vavro will get a voucher worth 50 EUR for the Lomography online shop while the runners-up will receive 15 piggies each. All winners qualify for the year-end Ten And One - Annual Lomography Photo Awards under the "Human Stories" category.
