Photo Finish for Central Park


While it may look simple enough, the photo above has been awarded first place in the Fall Photo Contest.

The pic — shot by Czech Republic-native Jan Dospel — is of the Park’s atmospheric lake at sunset. Dospel has been shooting on the side for some 40 years and says Central Park is one of his biggest inspirations

Dospel’s pic was given top honors by a panel of big-shot judges including: Diana Edkins, Director of Exhibitions and Limited Edition Photographs at the Aperture Foundation and Sean Corcoran, Curator of Prints and Photographs at the Museum of the City of New York.

Dospel wins a two-night stay at the Jumeirah Essex House hotel — which co-sponsored the contest — located right on the Park itself.

Nice one!
