Contest winner: J. Vos
®claryl: Was the winning picture a spontaneous idea? Why did you pick this picture?
JV: The picture was taken in a serie of photo's of my team during the Tour for Life. I picked this picture because it has nice colors and shows some of the endurance that you were looking for: cycling in the burning sun, while the power in his body floats away.
®claryl: Where did you take this photo?
JV: During the fourth stage of the Tour for Life, which took the riders through the Jura.
®claryl: Was there a special reason for taking this photo?
JV: Like most of my photo's just to have nice pictures for my teammates.
®claryl: Why did you decide to enter the competition?
JV: I'm just beginning with photography and I was wondering wheter I could compete …
®claryl: What is it about photography that particularly appeals to you?
JV: The colors are kind of surreal, because of the backlight.
®claryl: Which picture have you decided to have framed?
JV: A picture I took during the Mini Marathon on Berlin Tempelhof. I like the rigid architecture and the contrast with the child.
