While you are waiting for me to finish the video edit on our last Puerto Rican Photo Challenge, we have a new competition for you guys to judge. This time I take a back seat and let Lee Morris and Pye Jirsa of SLR Lounge battle head to head in the streets of Old San Juan.
For this competition I decided to mix it up a bit and move to the streets of Old San Juan. If you've seen our previous Puerto Rican Photo Challenges, we normally explore areas that are less visited and often overlooked. In this shootout, I decided to explore the most popular area of the island to see what interesting backgrounds and scenes Lee and Pye could find.
So far in the series, we haven't really brought along models or focused on the overall theme or styling, but since Pye is a great portrait photographer and Lee obviously struggles with landscapes, I thought it would be fun to incorporate a local model into this shootout. We were lucky to get the lovely Yuanilie Alvarado to walk with us through the streets, and as you'll see in the upcoming competition video, she brought such a high energy to the entire shoot. Although Lee and Pye took tons of images in all sorts of different scenes, ultimately they both had to cull their images down to one single file to submit for the contest.
Below are the two submissions that we need your help judging who took the best photo?

I will reveal both photos to Pye and Lee in 24 hours as well as the final readers poll to determine who won this shootout.
