Here is what Tim had to say about the win:

This is great news!

I've been trying to win this contest for years! I've had a tough week and winning has made it better!

The photo is comprised of a few ambient and flash pops. I had the dickens pulling that view on a sunny day and good thing I had my trusty AB800's.

I would like to thank (in no particular order) Barry Mackenzie, Tony Roslund, Scott Hargis (his biggest fan), Wu-Tang, Roehner/Ryan, Nick Marshall, Tony Colangelo, Larry, the entire PFRE community and my clients who let me photograph that masterpiece.
