Joel Chan from the US has won the cars and transport photos competition. Joel has won $194.40 and a Leica C camera worth $700. Joel shot this photo with a Canon 5D Mark 3. The lighting in the photo is fantastic and I can imagine a lot of post-processing work was done to make it look this good.
Congratulations to Paul Borg Olivier from Valletta in Malta who took the winning shot. Paul has won $8,850.00 and a Leica M MONOCHROM body worth $8000.00.

The I SHOT IT Team
Goran Jovic from Croatia has won $590.00 and a Leica C worth $700. Goran has many super photos on his website: goran-jovic.com. Goran excels at taking photos of people from all of the world. Goran uses a Canon 5D which is seriously good camera, but we hope he will make use of the Leica C which can easily fit in a pocket.
The second horse competition has been won by Sarah Koutnik from Austria. Sarah has won $180.00 and a Leica C camera worth $700. More of Sarah's photo can be seen on her website: sarah-koutnik.de and her flickr page.
The I-SHOT-IT website will now automatically adjust its layout depending on whether you are using a phone or tablet. In the website settings page there is a new setting which allows you to override the automatic detection.
We have a new star in the world of macro photography. Ondrej Pakan from Slovakia has won. You can see more of his excellent photos here: 500px.com/biker11. Ondrej has won $156.00 plus a Leica C worth $700. Ondrej really gets the most out of the Canon MP-E 65mm lens. The colors in his photos are superb.
Máté Bence has won his fourth I SHOT IT competition with this super photo of a fox. Máté is someone that will stay in a hide for days or camp out in freezing conditions to get that one perfect shot. Hard work and dedication has shown that he can produce great photos again and again. Máté has won $224.00 and a Leica C camera worth $700.
Richard Schabetsberger has won $1,395.00 and a Leica X2 Camera worth $2000.
