And so after a lot of deliberating, our mentors have decided unanimously that the winner of the first PCI Uber contest to be none other than....

Rakesh J.V. !!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D

Hearty congrats Rakesh !!!!

Some of the mentors comments about his photo were -

"Personally, Rakesh J. V. 's shot grabbed my attention -- with my mind moved away from the subjects and into the overall photographs instead."

"feels like 3D effect"

"I'll go for choosing Rakesh's shot. It's got a 'different' look to it and I know I'll remember it for a while."

One critique that a mentor had was - " I really, really, really wish he'd cropped square and got that splash within the dark area of the frame as the grey edges are just doing nothing for the pic."

A hearty congratulations to him and thanks to everyone who participated. :)

@Rakesh - Please PM me and doc Rajesh your address details and a small write up about you with a photo that will go up in the hall of fame ! :D
