The week’s winner of in our photo of the year series garnered over half the votes and is the biggest winner of the series so far with votes totalling almost 3 times that of its nearest rival. The image, a bright colourful moment where we see Spanish athlete Jose Miguel Perez diving into a snow of wake in the foreground absorbed in his race as media in the background crowd a position trying to capture the perfect shot. The green of the large trees and vibrant blue sky also portray the natural wholesomeness of triathlon environments.

Now we’ve had the reader’s choice its back to our camera artist Delly Carr for his choice and why:

At the time I didn’t think much of this image. But Paula Findlay surprised everyone that day and beat all the fancied favourites. So this picture now takes on a different meaning.

Her eyes tell you so much. You can see power, nobility, and ambition in her stare. And then look at all the blues in the image ..... her eyes, her swim goggles, her uniform, and the background. The colour blue is linked to consciousness, intellect, power and seriousness. Add a splash of the energy of the colour red, the colour of fire and blood, and she had the colour balance working perfectly that day to take on the world. And she did. - Delly Carr
