• YOUR SHOT|ngm.com/yourshot Brynn Bayman Crowthorne, England British students roll down the dunes in "cartwheel pairs" near the Gobabeb research station in Namibia's Namib Desert. "I'd just made them sit still for 45 minutes to take in the beauty of the landscape," says geography teacher Bayman, 44. "Their reply was to show off their youth. By the time they reached the bottom, they had sand in every part of their clothing and hair." Mátyás Sarvady Budapest, Hungary "When I visit my grand- parents," says Sarvady, 26, "I see how time has changed them. But with a camera in my hands, I feel like I have the power to stop time." After wait- ing two weeks for the weather to cooperate at his elders' home in Săcueni, Romania, he did just that. Photographing them at a summery table in a wheat field resulted in this shot.
