Prize Photos The judges of the English language portion of the National Geographic International Photography Contest were captivated by the "mysterious style" of a woman's portrait, a cow's "sense of dignity," and an unlikely urban scene in India. The photographers of these three images each received a Leica D-Lux 4 digital camera. The contest's winning and honorable- mention photographs can be viewed at ngm.com. PEOPLE Joshua Monaghan Enmore, Australia His subject wasn't in the mood to pose for an "honest" portrait. "Maybe that helped the photo," Monaghan says. PLACES Subhrajit Basu West Bengal, India Wrestlers vie before a rapt crowd in a business district, Basu's vision of the "unexpected" quality of Indian life. NATURE Wendy Erlendson Manitoba, Canada "Cows seem to like me," says Erlendson. To get her angle, she hugged the ground---behind the safety of a fence.
