I thought just narrowing the images down to a handful of finalists would be easier, but boy, was I wrong. We’ve got some real talent in our group! 

The masses have spoken and they’ve chosen this fantastic image taken by SheriBelle Karper, and I can see why! This image is wonderful, the streaming lights of traffic juxtaposed with the Getty Center standing tall and in focus is a testament to the city itself. The lights of the city also create a magnificent contrast to the dusk sky settling in LA. It’s a great example of the difference between taking a picture of something and making a photograph using the available elements. Ultimately, like all successful pictures, it just works.
