Kudos to Chris Bellezza, a Harrington College of Design Commercial Photography student whose image "Papa" was named an Editors' Favorite in National Geographic's 2011 Photo Contest.

Included in the "People" section, Bellezza's image is an editorial-style portrait of his 95-year-old grandfather, who was a photographer as well. Chris captured the image with his Canon 7D body and Tamron 17-55mm zoom lens, showcasing not only his grandfather, but also his grandfather’s collection of vintage cameras he had used over the years.
