Paragraph 1

A French photographer has won a photography . Nicolas Lefaudeux won the prize in the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2020 competition. This is run by the Royal Observatory in the UK. Mr Lefaudeux won the $17,000 prize for his photo of our galaxy - the Andromeda . Andromeda is two million years from Earth. It neighbours our Milky Way galaxy. Lefaudeux used a technique called tilt-shift to take his photo. The result is a photo that makes Andromeda look amazingly close to us. In the photo, we can clearly see the bright, oval-shaped galaxy in the of space. It is surrounded by other stars and celestial objects.
