Sony Ericsson World View competition
2007's World View winner, Wang Feng from China comments on the image that won him the prestigious title: "I took the image after my car fell into a ditch and got covered in mud. As I was trying to get the car out, the fly landed on the windscreen and I thought it was the perfect picture. I would not have captured it if I had not had my camera phone with me."
