Shannon Lee has won the cat photo contest. Shannon lives in London, England, and was originally from Durban, South Africa. This photo shows that sometimes it is enough that only a small part of a photo is sharp and in focus, and that the blurriness and colours of foreground objects can be used to great artistic effect. Shannon has won $291.60 and a Leica C worth $700.
