    عدة وجوه Annual Photos Contest Winners 2005 !!.

    First Prize: Leng Bai

    14-day trip for two to Guatemala, including Lake Atitlلn and Antigua.

    "Photography is a good way to dive into life, to record life," says Leng Bai, a clerk at the First Northeast Electrical Power Engineering Company in Tieling City, China, who has been taking photos for more than 20 years. He captured this shot of 80-year-old musician Zuozheng He in Yunnan Province in the city of Lijiang, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Most of Lijiang's residents belong to the Naxi ethnic group. He is playing traditional music on the Chinese lute. "Naxi ancient music is a precious asset to China," explains Bai. "Since today few people can play the music, I am worried about its future. That's why I wanted to use the camera to record the image." (Hasselblad 503CW, 50-80mm zoom lens, Kodak VS100 film.)

    Second Prize: Larry Louie

    Six-day walking tour for two in County Kerry, Ireland.

    Canadian Larry Louie, an Edmonton optometrist, took this photograph in the "blue city" of Jodhpur during a trip to India in 2004. "I was wandering in some of the back alleys when I noticed an elderly lady sitting in the shade in front of her home. The blue buildings of the area seemed particularly intense in the shade on a bright, sunny day," explains Louie. As he was trying to communicate with the older woman, her daughter came out of the house. "The moment the daughter stopped beside her mother, the whole scene seemed complete, balanced. The rest was just luck; the way the clothing and shoes were so complementary to the background, providing an almost monochromatic image." (Contax N1, Zeiss 24-85mm zoom lens, Fujichrome Provia film.)

    Third Prize: Andy Lin

    Six-day windjammer sailing cruise for two along the Maine coast.

    "I am in awe of photography's ability to transform thought and emotion—the artist as modern-day alchemist," says New Yorker Andy Lin. A photo editor for Overspray street art magazine and drummer for the rock band Nozomi Phoenix, Lin also tends bar on Manhattan's Lower East Side. He took this photograph of a former bonded laborer who was painting at Vidhayak Sansad, an organization in Maharashtra, India, that has identified and released slaves for more than 20 years. "It was one of the most magical and inspirational places I have ever been," says Lin. "There are good fights being fought all around the world; our media doesn't always inform us of them, but there are victories." (Asahi Pentax 6x7, Pentax 45mm lens, Fujicolor NPZ 800 film.)

    4th Prize: Fakrul Islam

    Olympus Camedia C-770 digital camera and a copy of the National Geographic Photography Field Guide.

    Fakrul Islam forgot his raincoat on an evening outing in his native Bangladesh. When there was a sudden change of weather, Islam ran for shelter, from which he looked out on this scene. "Nature's beauty attracted me to the image," says Islam, a political science lecturer in Sylhet, a city in northeastern Bangladesh on the Surma River. Islam says that whenever he's not working, he likes to take photographs. "My theory behind photography is to capture unusual presents for the future." (Nikon F601, 19-35mm Sigma zoom lens, Fujichrome Provia 100 film

    5th Prize: Catherine Hall

    Olympus Camedia C-770 digital camera and a copy of the National Geographic Photography Field Guide.

    Catherine Hall was traveling in the Nevada desert when the temperature soared to more than 100 degrees. She found refuge from the heat and dust in a tent, where she encountered a man doing yoga. "His white, sand-covered feet had an amazing contrast against his dark skin," she says. Hall, an assistant for professional photographers, says everyone in the tent thought she was crazy when she lay down to get the shot. "My camera often gives me the ability and courage to approach people with different backgrounds." (Canon EOS 3, Canon 28-80mm 2.8 L series zoom lens, Kodak E200 film.)

    6th Prize: Charles Meacham

    Olympus Camedia C-770 digital camera and a copy of the National Geographic Photography Field Guide.

    Charles Meacham, who won Traveler's 15th annual photo contest, teaches English in Taiwan to support what he describes as his "traveling, photographing lifestyle." Meacham had been traveling by public bus in southern Ethiopia for about a month when he came to a small village just outside the Omo Valley. There he took this portrait of two tribal boys. "Too many people focus on the poverty and problems of a destination," explains Meacham. "I see these things, too, but I also see beautiful people wherever I go." (Canon 1v, Canon 28-70mm 2.8 L series zoom lens, Fujichrome Provia 100 film.)

    7th Prize: Sheila Pressman

    Olympus Camedia C-770 digital camera and a copy of the National Geographic Photography Field Guide.

    Sheila Pressman, a research scientist who lives in California, took this photo on a rare cloudless day in Neko Harbor, Antarctica. "I had my camera out, ready to shoot when one penguin stopped beside the whale bones and posed for me," says Pressman. "The sun created an intensity of color, and the penguin added a touch of whimsy, which were both irresistible." (Canon PowerShot G5 digital, built-in 7.2-28.8mm zoom lens.)

    8th Prize: Jim Kane

    Olympus Camedia C-770 digital camera and a copy of the National Geographic Photography Field Guide.

    Jim Kane of Philadelphia, who started the travel company Culture Xplorers, has done some exploring of his own. He took this photograph during Semana Santa in Antigua, Guatemala. It was nearly dusk when Kane heard music from a children's procession and headed outside. "I came across these two boys trying to reignite the copal incense they were carrying in the procession. The purple robes, the gesture of holding the burner, the fact that they were lost for a moment in their own world in the middle of one of Latin America's largest religious celebrations, all combined to create a moment worth capturing." (Nikon D70 digital, Nikon kit 18-70mm zoom lens.)

    9th Prize: Chantelle Rytter

    Olympus Camedia C-770 digital camera and a copy of the National Geographic Photography Field Guide.

    Chantelle Rytter was the first person to arrive at the top of an Atlanta skyscraper on Valentine's Day morning. Rytter, who works in event planning, enjoys photographing from balconies. "The shifts in the weather and light over a terrific distance satisfies my eye like watching the ocean," says Rytter. "The fog blanket is always my favorite. It only happens a few times a year and not for very long. It is a magical perspective on a familiar scene. It's clearly Atlanta, but Atlanta dreaming." (Canon PowerShot S1 IS digital, built-in 5.8-58mm zoom lens.)

    10th Prize: Alex Rostocki

    Olympus Camedia C-770 digital camera and a copy of the National Geographic Photography Field Guide.

    Alex Rostocki snapped this photograph during Semana Santa in Seville, Spain. "I got this shot on an extremely narrow street in a 'people jam,' which allowed me to get so close that I was standing in the procession," explains Rostocki, an attorney who lives in Connecticut. "I was fascinated with the eyes of the penitents peering out from their hoods." During the week Rostocki was in Seville, he never saw a penitent remove a hood. "It was these little mysteries that drew me to take this photo." (Nikon D70 digital, Nikkor 18-70mm zoom lens.)
