Just by taking a look at the lengthy collection of shortlisted photos you can see that the level of entries for the first Vanguard competition was exceptionally high!

The judges didn't have an easy task when it came to picking an overall winner and lengthy deliberations did take place!

However, as with all the Vanguard weekly competitions, there could only be one winner and the judges finally decided that the first of eight weekly prizes should go to ePHOTOzine member heatherb with the shot titled 'Holy man, india, Jaipur'.

The judges commented on how you're drawn straight to the subject's eyes and how he really 'pops' from the frame. It's a great environmental portrait that's a worthy winner of the Vanguard Actus Plus 323CT tripod!

Congratulations to the winner, well done to all who made the shortlist and thank you, also, to everyone who took the time to enter.
