The Capture the Colour Photography Competition Has A Winner
And…it’s Wes from Johnny Vagabond.
And so I have travelled around the world through other people’s photos, drunk and giddy with power to begin with before becoming rather overwhelmed by all the talent out there by the end.
So, to rustle up a well worn and thoroughly familiar cliche, it really was difficult to choose a winning entry from all the fantastic photos that we saw.
But in the end, we had to get our heads together and choose just the one winner, and it was Johnny Vagabond with the picture published above, taken on the side of the Ganges River in Varanasi, India.
I also loved this shot he took in Antigua, Guatemala as well as the blue-tinged sculptures from Kathmandu below:
But wait, there’s more great travel photography…
But in actual fact, ladies and gentlemen, we cheated a little – and I’m not afraid to admit it. When the competition began, there was only going to be one cash prize for the overall winner. But then, as the photos were so, so good, the idea of a second and third prize came up as well.
And so, second place goes to Edith Levy with this beautiful buttercup yellow shot of a bicycle in Florence called An Italian Vignette.
Third place, meanwhile, goes to Anthon Jackson who blogs at Wanderings over here. His prize-winning shot was a snap of a boy throwing himself into a pool of green water in Fatehpur Sikhri in India. Personally I fell in love with his yellow shot called Soccer Silhouette that was taken in Laos (see below.)

That’s a wrap for the #capturethecolour contest, though. I hope you’ve had fun taking part and I hope it’s given you some inspiration to grab any camera you can get your hands on and to get out there and get snapping.
