I really like candid shots like this. Just a wife relaxing on the sofa watching the tube, and the black-and-white works very well with this comp.

Congrats. I like it, and it did fit the theme. It's in my top five among the candidates. A lot of the entries, although technically exceptional, were too posed.

I'm very happy to have received this award! A Big thanks to zeissimages.com and Zeiss for the opportunity and Torralba and Seal for selecting my photo.

The story behind the photo: Benguela is a city in Angola to where, me and my wife, moved 4 years ago. I took a job in a construction company managing a building site. My wife found a job a bit after moving in but the company didn't afford to pay her for very long. She couldn't find a job after that, too overqualified, so the afternoons on the couch became her blues. So also a very big thanks to her for being there and enduring it for me!

Thanks you all for your compliments!
