Photo Editor’s take on the winning image

A dynamic view of a common dosa, fried to a rich, golden brown with the masala snugly tucked at its core. Excellent composition; Arya has chosen an angle not normally attempted. Shot with an open aperture, the shallow depth of field has added to the beauty of this photograph.

Shonali's take on the winning image

We liked this picture, in particular, because its unusual angle gave a fresh perspective to this familiar, commonly photographed dish.
