For the second time in a row, and the fourth time this contest year, Chor-Yin George Chan of Kingsbury, Australia wins, this time with his first place Star Mono image In the Slum. This month's judge, J. R. Schnelzer said:
"I love images that either tell a story or wrap you into the image and this is exactly what this month's POM does. The dark foreboding location has a unique bright spot, which by enhancement draws the viewer into the image. Wanting to know more, wanting to discover the lost stories, wanting to experience the sense of place. This is what makes this image so compelling. Excellent use of the monochrome media."
