We are also proud of Tang Tawanwad Wanavit‎ for his continued effort and showing improvement in leaps and bounds. He is a hard working photographer and we wish him all the best. Congratulations once again.

Vineet Vohra and Rohit Vohra – This is a wonderful image, intriguing at first and the viewer is forced to stop and have a second look. Good use of flash here, it captures the gaze very well. One can feel the tension created within the frame. Could be easily passed off as a wildlife shot, however it shows the street photographers approach in creating this inspiring scene.

Tang wins a copy of Tales of Tono by Daido Moriyama
