I’d read about the WPPI Awards held in Las Vegas USA for a while and like usual, procrastinated in entering. I’d seen some of the big players in the Photography industry win awards here and thought Id have a crack at it. Now this particular image had a lot of work done to it and after bombing out in the Victorian Professional Photographer of the year awards in 2011, I took note of the judges remarks. I was dumbfounded and so late one night, probably after too many red wines, I made some subtle changes. And bingo it looked great. So I entered it along with other prints ( yes they bombed, more work to be done there ) to test the water. 3rd place in the Landscape/Nature category for an International USA Photography competition. Well I’m totally stoked, wrapped, thrilled …. oh what ever… So thank you judges and friends for seeing the beauty and simplicity of this stunning image taken In Melbourne heading down towards the Peninsula. I hope you all appreciate its serenity in our fast paced competitive world. If by chance you want a copy shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I can get you a gorgeous canvas to hang on your wall.
