Mark French's shot deservedly triumphed over more than 12,500 entries in the CBRE Urban Photographer of the Year awards for 2013.

‘I had recently moved to Hong Kong and was struck by the immensity and quantity of advertising on display, especially on the trams which are a unique feature,' Mark says. ‘As I watched closely, I noticed that the advertising images on the side of the trams made an interesting contrast between the passengers' expressions and faces, and in this case with the driver who seemed to be checking his reflection during the morning rush hour.'
