When we look at this image, the technical quality it self is blowing our socks off. But moreover, the image stands as a unique portrait where the soul has been captured and there is a location and some circumstances we keep imagining we know what are. For each time we look at this image, the people become more familiar, yet with a strong story we can only imagine, placed in a strong composition with a rock solid technical presentation.
Excellent and skilful use of light and texture / tone here, I really love this capture and also the balance of the mood and space. Very deserving winner, well done Tim
I took this photo at the RWB headquarter in San Francisco. The wall is completeley rebuilt in photoshop, the landscape outside is also composed. I lit the car and location with several Elinchrom Ranger Quadras.

This photo was taken at the marina in Crescent City, California in early November, 2010. I shot this with my Nikon D40 and the only post processing was to turn the picture black and white. I love pictures taken in the fog, for me it seems to give them a sense of mystery. Thank you for all the votes. Melani Johnson ~ Florence, Oregon
