The Walk Leader competition is always one of the hardest to judge
There are so many great entries from so many talented leaders around the world — it just’a really tough job. Last year was a particularly tough one to judge, and this year it’s that tough once again. Maybe more.

Although there’s only one winner, I felt there were some images that were so good that even though they didn’t win a prize, they still deserved to be recognized, so I’m displaying my “Honorable Mentions” first, then we’ll reveal our winner.

I present our 10 Walk Leader Competition Honorable Mentions (in no particular order):

Leader / Photographer: Bruck
Photo Walk: São Paulo, Brazil

My Comments: I’ve gotta say, I would never have guessed a shot taken in a men’s room would wind up winning a phase of this competition, but this is no ordinary image. The way all the colors work so perfectly together, along with the expression of the gentleman in the foreground (and how he’s framed in the image), along with how the room itself is a little distorted — it’s just such a cool shot. It’s the kind of shot that wins contests — like this one. :) Well done, Bruck. I super dig it! :)

As Walk Leader Competition Winner, Bruck will receive:

  • Canon EOS RP Mirrorless Camera with RF 24-105mm F/4L is USM Lens and PIXMA PRO-10
  • Adobe All Apps Membership
  • $250 B&H Gift Card

  • $25 Rocky Nook gift card
  • Skylum Luminar 3
  • $250 Westcott Gift Card
  • Think Tank – Signature 13 (Gray) Camera Bag

Congratulations to all the Photo Walk Leaders Competition honorable Mentions and our Winner!

We still have one more prize competition left to go — the Mobile (Cell phone) photography category, which we’ll announce next week.

Have a great weekend, everybody and we’ll see ya back here on Monday :)
