A Canadian photographer has triumphed in this year?s Travel Photographer of the Year (TPOTY) competition.

Dr Larry Louie, an optometrist who specialises in ?humanitarian documentary? photos, won the TPOTY with a portfolio of b&w images that judges praised as ?stunning and highly atmospheric?.

?Larry demonstrates a strong understanding of light and tonal range so often missing in digitally-captured b&w imagery,? said competition founder Chris Coe.

Larry said he captured the images using a Canon EOS 5D.

His prizes include a £1,000 cash bursary and a trip to Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.

Meanwhile, Kat Waters, 17, from Britain, won the Young Travel Photographer of the Year title.
