2012 Contest Winner

By Jorge Torralba

[size=14]Thank you all very much for participating in the 2012 photo contest. All entries submitted were exceptional and showed how varied the artistic talent of all photographers can be while adhering to the contest theme.

I am told it was not easy selecting the winner. However, the final say came from Tony Rose. Tony has been in the photo industry for over 40 years and has had a very special relation with Leica cameras. Tony operates which is one of Leica’s top dealers and has provided exceptional customer service. Tony selected the following image as the winner of the 2012 Leica Images Photo contest.

“The balance between the main subject and the candles proved very effective for this photograph. It immediately made me wonder what the girl was doing or thinking. Was it a spiritual moment for her?”

Congratulations are in order for Herman. Better known on as member hepagter.

A great thank you is in order for Tony of for his generosity in sponsoring this year’s contest. I would ask you all to visit prior to your next purchase decision. All members will be offered best pricing possible.[/size]

:) Congrats, Herman. Wonderful pix. You deserve it.

In the 'Far east', I got to know more about Karma; and may you always add positiveness to the circle of life.

Herman, my heart goes out to you on the death of your father - he raised a caring and compassionate son, which makes me think he was the same. Your winning photo has always been one of my favorite of your images, and in its way seems very appropriate as a memorial to your father - to light a candle in tribute.

My best, Diane

photography is a passion that unites people in good times and in bad, you're experiencing both at the same time, but I hope that the embrace of all we will be a comfort.
congratulations on the award and for your professionalism.
