1st Place | Photo of the Month | 50th Month

Misty Morning, by Sanjoy Sengupta
Starting from a hotshot point and shoot camera in late 80s to a Nikon FM10 film camera in late 90s, Sanjoy Sengupta used to get 32 out of 36 exposure wrong to a day of digital cameras like canon Powershot A520 and a decent hybrid version canon SX20IS, which were with him wherever he went to capture some beautiful moments, moments of life which would be cherished forever. Then when he finally could not resist the alluring pricy Nikon DSLR, his actual learning started from that moment. Sanjoy’s photograph Misty Morning awarded in the Photo of the Day Award in the category of Artistic Photography, as it scored a solid 70 (Value 13, Clarity 13, Composition 18, Style 13, Skill 13) from our international jury of 5. The number of Tweets, Facebook shares, and StumbleUpon Organic Views boosted the popularity of the photograph, raising its score to 7.18 from social media (Facebook Share 4.48, Tweets 2.7, StumbleUpon Organic View 0.000, and Comments 0), and in total 77.18, the highest score in this competition for the 50th Month.
