'Two' Competition Winners

Here are the winners of our 2022 'Two' photography competition.

As usual, we were amazed by the quality of the images we received. With so many strong contenders, picking a winner was by no means easy.

After much debate, we selected three winners and one honourable mention.

Massive CONGRATULATIONS to our prizewinners and THANK YOU to everyone who entered!

First-prize winner Mohanan Oruvayalil will receive an Apple Watch plus bonus strap (total value: $400). Second prize, a LEE Filters Big Stopper ($120), goes to runner-up Samantha Zauscher. In third place, Saša Huzjak wins a Karl Taylor Technical Lighting Pack.

1st Prize 


Mohanan Oruvayalil

We love this beautifully composed shot of two horses emerging from the mist. The way the sunlight diffuses through the fog creates a lovely ethereal atmosphere, with the angular shadows adding to the effect. Capturing moments like this is harder than it looks, and the quality of this image is a testament to the photographer’s keen eye. Well done, Mohanan!


2nd Prize

Lee FIlters Big Stopper Prize

Samantha Zauscher

An intriguing image that captures our attention and draws us in. The lighting is excellent and the use of beige and grey tones across the background and the clothing creates a sense of thematic coherence. Excellent work, Samantha!

3rd Prize

Lee FIlters Lighting Gels Technical Pack Prize

Saša Huzjak

The lighting in this portrait of two young musicians is exquisite. The scratches on the cello, which could easily have been removed in Photoshop, give a sense of the history and character of the instrument. We also enjoy the composition, with the two figures and the cello arranged in descending order by height, and the vertical bow echoing the lines of the cello strings and stand. Bravo, Saša!

Highly Commended


Vladimir Cosic

The reflections, the use of natural light, the ghostly atmosphere created by black-and-white tones – a lovely shot worthy of an honourable mention. Nice job, Vladimir!

    Dear Karl and the team, thank you very much for the recognition of my photograph! I am, of course, absolutely delighted by this news! 🙂

    Although the Karl Taylor LEE Filters pack will definitely come in handy in my work, I’m more and truly grateful for the constructive review of the photo and very kind words.

    Congratulations to Mohanan Oruvayalil, Samantha Zauscher and Vladimir Cosic – amazing work!
