Don’t look down.
The Ruwanwelisaya is a Buddhist shrine in the ancient city of Anuradhapura, in north-central Sri Lanka.
Clement De Silva’s extraordinary shot of a group painting the famously all-white dome is a poignant reminder that the 9 – 5 grind looks different around the world. For you, reader, it might involve excel spreadsheets in an air-conditioned office, or shovelling bricks on top of each other with the right amount of mortar. For these guys, a work day involves standing on a makeshift ladder 55-metres in the air, giving an ancient place of worship a fresh lick of paint.

The quality of submissions never ceases to amaze get lost’s editors, every issue it's only getting harder and harder to choose a winner.
This issue we saw a particularly impressive bunch come through—from distant Mongolian sand dunes to urban Japan and onto a boat in the Thailand's Krabi region.

The Mt Hagen Cultural Show is a fusion of colour and chaos, with tribes converging on Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea to display their distinctive singsings. Antony Philip’s lovely portrait of a young tribe member in the midst of things transports us to another place.
