I thought it would be easy to select the winners, but I hesitated a lot between many pictures. So thank you all for your support. It is not easy to pay homage to Henri Cartier-Bresson as his images are very hard to emulate, and I was very happy about the quality of the posts.

Honorable mention, in no special order:






THIRD***PLACE
Margaret Lew’s moment is very evocative of the multiple pictures HCB took of behind the window scenes. I like the contrast between the naked mannequins and the warmly dressed woman.


SECOND***PLACE
This picture by Robin Lew immediately attracted my attention, with such a contrast; the movement of the man walking, looking ahead and the bizarre men sitting and watching, and a straight geometry.


FIRST***PLACE
Juan Leon’s picture reminds me of the classic HCB picture of a man jumping over a puddle. There is a sense of movement; the boy jumps and barely makes it, while another boy watches. The succession of pictures, while not in the HCB tradition, works very well. Congratulations Juan!

Congratulations to Juan Leon and the other winners and thanks very much for the 3rd place, it was a nice surprise!
The topic you chose was a good opportunity to review the work of Cartier-Bresson and to learn from it.
