Yvonne Lu New York United States 3rd Place
It s all about those unique and sometimes surprising moments along the journey for Yvonne Lu who captured a quiet yet captivating image of a couple on a train. She noticed the pair as she travelled along the Hudson Valley River on her way home to New York City. Lu was taken by the beauty of this scene just a few seats away from her own and silently snapped the shot. The couple she explains looks like they don t need anything else in the world. I also found the romantic vintage feel very entrancing. The two looked as if they could be coming back from a movie set. She relies on the iPhone to capture moments like these because it lets her take pictures quietly without disturbing her subjects. She also loves the ability to post her photos to social sites like Instagram and share them with the world instantly. Lu whose Chinese name is Yichieh is a Taiwan born fine arts photographer who currently resides in New York.
