This is it, the contest is almost over. This was a fun contest to run and submission taught me a great deal about how we all see friends in different ways. It has also taught me that for the next contest we have here, I’d wanna have prizes that are globally available. (More on that in the upcoming week).

"You poke his eye out, I’ll catch it" by yousaf.khokhar wins a two-week body rental from BorrowLenses.com
This is a wonderful moment, friends walking along, unguarded and unposed. There is comfort, familiarity and humor, very important elements of friendship.
And, as a street photograph it reminds me of Henri Cartier-Bresson and the decisive moment. The gestures and composition are perfect, the figures at right are interesting and it is all very spontaneous, captured at just the right time. I also really like the quality of the photo, it reminds me of film (so much so that I had to find out what it was shot with – a Ricoh GX100).
3rd Place by Brian Auer:
" " by Faraz Shah wins a two-weeks lens rental from BorrowLenses.com
I’m a sucker for black and white photos, and this one is exceptional. I love the strong lines throughout the image, and the scene looks great with such high contrast. The main subject is a good strong character and the lighting on him is great. I also like the little slice of reflection where his hand meets the wall near the window.
The Really Cool Part:
This is where you can help to make the winning submission. Each submission has a number. Add your favorite number as a comment. In two weeks from now, I’ll tally up the votes and declare a winner. (Click the Image to seeit bigger).
A great Gear Swap Review:
Silvio Padron participated in the first part of the project and did a great Nikon/Canon gear swapping review. So Silvio wins a one week lens rental from BorrowLenes.com.

I like the tender moment this photo captures between Father and Son – and the fact that it was shot by his brother makes it all that much better. The low key lighting looks really great on the subjects too!
