Kelby Announces Grand Prize Winner
Scott Kelby announced the grand prize winner today for the Lightroom 2 Wold Wide Photowalk. Suhaimi Abdullah from our neighboring city, Singapore. Congratulations to him as he wins the Adobe Creative Suite Premium, Lightroom 2, a $500 B&H Photo Gift certificate, a Wacom tablet, the Peachpit Book Bundle, and MPIX prize package, and more!
Here is what Scott had to say about the winning shot:
I chose Suhaimi Abdullah’s shot from the Singapore walk, of a bird flying overhead an industrial-looking street. To me, everything from its composition to its colors told a story. It looked almost surreal, and at the same time, totally believable because we’ve all been in a concrete jungle and have been suddenly reminded of nature and it’s inclusion (or exclusion), and I thought this image just portrayed that beautifully. In the end; I just couldn’t stop looking at it, and it is the one I’d want hanging in my home or office. For whatever reason, it just spoke to me.

I thought it was interesting that one of the runners up, Rui Lebreiro’s shot from the Porto, Portugal was a very similar to TYs. Quite frankly, I think had TY processed his image less or even left it color it might have been a on Scott’s blog today.
