English-Language Edition Winner: Places
By Subhrajit Basu, India


A wrestler tosses his opponent out of a game played on the streets of Kolkata, India.

The image was chosen as the best places photo from English-language reader submissions in the National Geographic Society's 2008 International Photography Contest.

"The context of place is so important for this picture and why I think it deserves the honor in this category," said freelance photojournalist and judge Tyrone Turner. "I keep looking at all of the faces in the background and the building behind the wrestlers."
