    Title: 'The Paharganj Three-way intersection' - New Delhi, India⁣
    Paharganj, and particularly its primary thoroughfare Main Bazar, is a bustling backpacker enclave full of budget guest houses and tiny shops selling everything from hippie clothes to incense. There’s a mix of casual bakeries, no-nonsense eateries serving classic Indian dishes, and rooftop restaurants whose menus feature global fare like pasta and falafel. Nearby New Delhi station is a major railway hub.⁣ © Seungwook Lee

Finalists

– 1st Prize: Manuel Armenis

“ This image looks like a Mondrian painting. The shadows and the lit walls draw the viewing in as well as the fabulous pop of red. I like a shot that incorporates signage. The girl is in great position with a shadow on her back as well – All in all a very successful street photograph.” – Cheryl Dunn

– 2nd Prize: Seungwook Lee

“I generally don’t like to rely on double exposure for a good picture, but this went the extra mile with a triple. This works great to convey the frenetic energy of the streets in Indian cities. The street to building horizon line stays consistent which is well thought out and I love the color pallet. I have been to India many times and this is really the way the streets make me feel. Well done.” – Cheryl Dunn

– 3rd Prize: Andrea Torrei

“Capturing a candid street scene is always a challenge. The photographer’s eye must stay alert while remaining discreet, allowing things to unfold naturally, forever observant and anticipating life. For a particular combination of light, movement, color or shadow is only ephemeral; An instant to hopefully capture the beauty of daily life, the memory of a time and place and the humanity of a moment.” – The Independent Photographer Editors
