Hi All,

Once again we were overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of photos received for the Travel themed Sony Photo Challenge.
After much thought and filtering, our Travel judge, Duncan McEwan, has chosen the following three photos as the winners:

1st: Transportation – David Peskens


Many fine images of aircraft were submitted, but this one caught my eye because the minimalistic approach and a large expanse of sky leave so much to the imagination. Jetting off to where? Even the trees have a feeling of some far off place and only closer examination reveals the cars making their own individual journeys. The component elements may be small, but the overall effect is evocative.
Prize is a NEX-5 camera from Sony

2nd: The Wall of Ice – Sacha S

Locations don't get much more exotic than this. The colour composition is strong, with the warmth of the mineral stained rock in the foreground contrasting well with the blue of the glacial ice, while the soft monochromatic mountains in the background add a mystical quality.
Prize is a NEX-3 camera from Sony

3rd: Man and Dog – Jan Enkelmann

Man and dog by Jan Enkelmann

A lovely candid shot of man and his best friend. Well, not quite, as the man appears in a world of his own, oblivious to the friendly dog seeking his attention. A touch of humour, coupled with a well-balanced composition and restricted colour, make for an eye-catching image very much in the photo travel genre.
Prize is a Cybershot camera from Sony
