2014 Winners

 

2014 Major Open Winner :

Dennis Ramos, USA


The Sunshine Skyway Bridge in St. Petersburg, Florida
It was a beautiful cloudless day with some patches of rolling fog over the bridge. My friend and I decided to go fishing that mid afternoon. I found out that my reel wasn't working so I grabbed my camera gear instead. I took a lot of shots around including this long exposure panoramic shot of the bridge. It took me a lot of time waiting and shooting in between the fog to get a good exposure. While waiting during long exposure times, I wished I had my fishing rod as well.

2014 Major Amateur Winner

Ben Neale, AU


Light
Arnhem Land, Australia.  The birds are Australian brolgas, it was taken from a powered paraglider and is a 3 image stitch. 5d mark2. I submitted this image because I found the abstract nature of the clay lake and the contrasting subtle interplay between the Brolgas very compelling. It was a tricky shot as I was out shooting landscapes that day at 35mm and knew I would have to get very low to capture the Brolgas in great detail, with a lot of sharp turns and some near misses it all came together in just 3 frames out of 200.
