Martyna’s image, entitled ‘Handplant at Tatra Mountains’ shows a snowboarder as he performs a daring manoeuvre.

The 2012 contest, which carried the theme ‘The moment that knows no limits’ was held on Flickr, where members voted for entries shortlisted by competition judges.

‘I have been photographing for so long. Winning this year’s Carl Zeiss Photo Contest makes me proud and shows that my efforts have paid off,’ said Martyna.

The runner-up was named as Mac Kwan from China.

Entries were required to have been shot using a Zeiss lens.
