I love that this photo won. It wasn't necessarily a curated shot, as I was having dinner with one of my best friends and his new beau, and after dinner he showed me these cheap mood lights that he had just purchased from Ikea that he was planning to set up in his kitchen underneath the cupboards. I had my camera with me and asked if we could experiment with the lights and see what sort of images we could come up with. The overall quality of the image isn't that great because of a high ISO setting and I have a tendency to under expose all of my photos, causing a decent amount of noise on my old 5D MKI. The impact of the shot overshadows any technical flaws for me, and I'm glad I didn't trash the shot for not being technically perfect.
