Travel Photo Roulette Round 30 “Silhouettes”: And the Winner is…

This is the second round we are hosting the Travel Photo Roulette (the previous one being the round 20 “Clothes”), and it’s not any easier to pick the winner. Thirty travelers/travel groups joining us in this Photo Roulette 1st anniversary round “Silhouette”, and their silhouette photos are ranging from great to marvellous!

See all the silhouette photos!

Ryan and I can’t settle on a winner in the beginning, so we decided for each of us to pick several favourites, then we would pick the winner from the overlap. And here are our favourites:

Ryan’s pick:

As you see, Mike’s Angkor Wat and Hecktic’s llama are neck to neck now, since both me and Ryan loves them. Tough choice! Mike’s Angkor Wat is drop dead gorgeous, and we love the body shape and the hair fuss of the llama. If we could choose 2 winners, we would. Unfortunately, there’s one 1 can conduct the next round. So we can only choose 1. This breaks my heart :’(

Over several days of changing our mind, we finally made the decision:

Congratulations to Pete and Dalene from Hecktic Travels, the winner of this round’s Travel Photo Roulette, “Silhouette”!

It was a long day of travel to Ingapirca, Ecuador, but worth it as we saw beautiful ruins and this llama which which just happened to be in the perfect position while eating his lunch. © Hecktic Travels

We ended up choosing this one above other gorgeous and clever photos for its uniqueness. Llama captured eating, the body shape is so clear, the hair fuzz, the tail, the legs (and I don’t know what’s that between the legs). It’s high up above the clouds, you can see mountain in the background, and the higher cloud is blindingly white, decorating the blue sky. This photo makes us wish we were there with Pete and Dalene enjoying the moment.

So Dalene and Pete, now it’s your turn to conduct the Photo Roulette round 31! We are excited to find out your chosen theme!

See all the silhouette photos!

    Great choice guys. Well done. I must admit I didn’t envy your position having to choose one of those – there were some great entries this time around. But I like how you chose to fit in your honorable mentions.

    Alpaca power!
