First curator's choice
Congratulations Omesh Meena!

Vinod Babu.V:It's a very bizarre image for me as the buildings look so gloomy (so is their future) and these workers are heading towards them. It sort of creates a very uneasy feeling in me, especially this juxtaposition of huge buildings, concrete and this family. Even the muted color tones add a lot to this grim scene. I can keep looking at this photo for days!



Second curator's choice
Congratulations Tejal Mewar!

Vinod Babu.V:A very well shot balanced image with beautiful color tonality. The composition of this photograph makes me keep looking at it and the flash and the expression on the lady's face has added a lot to this photograph.




Special Mentions

Vinod Babu.V
Vinod Babu.V: These brick kilns are very tough places to work and I have personally heard people talking about their ill-treatment shown by their owners. As the photographer writes, its indeed his daily fight!

Vinod Babu.V: Wonderful balance all through the frame. The hidden face brings a certain kind of mystery into this image.



Congratulations Jeffrey De Keyser!

Vinod Babu.V: Harsh contrast and the three tines make this an amazing photograph. I like it for the reason being not too revealing making the viewer do the guesswork.


Vinod Babu.V
Vinod Babu.V: It's just magical how the concrete wasn't dripping at one particular spot, making the man behind clear. The dusty texture of the land and the color makes it gloomy.


Vinod Babu.V
Vinod Babu.V: This photograph is beautiful and it's almost like a painting but still, this is very dangerous and many have lost lives doing this dangerous job.

Vinod Babu.V: For a moment I thought it to be the same man!
