|Competition Winner : First Prize|
The gentle and tender feeling which is being transported so sensitively through this photograph is truly priceless. The closed eyes, fingers, hands, arms and the private emotions, captured in black and white, makes it a strong image. The chosen depth of field and the crop with two similar couples in each in their worlds is wonderful.
New York City's Central Park in July 2011. Boris, a pedicab driver, approached me to ask if I needed some help around the Park. At dusk he said "you have to see this" Magic! Tango in the Park at dusk! I am humbled by this award and I wish to thank the judges for selecting my small photo in the sea of such great talent on this contest.
