Third Place, black and white 

Armed with his Minolta 800si camera, Larry Carter went to the North American International Auto Show to snap the perfect shot. "I was waiting all day for that shot!" he exclaimed. Carter finally got his chance, using selective focus to zero in on the patron in the mirror, while blurring out the figures in the background. "You can’t tell who it is. That’s what I like about it," he explains.

Though it’s only been a hobby until now, Carter hopes to pursue photography as a career in the future and is currently studying his craft at Breithaupt Career and Technical Center in Detroit. He has had his work displayed for the Make a Wish Foundation, and also at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

As for the type of car in the photo (a Jaguar), that was carefully planned too. "I wanted to use that particular car," he says. "My wife wants a Jaguar someday."
