APPA 2015 Results

Young Monk at Gangtey BhutanI just returned from Melbourne where I went to watch the judging of the Australian Professional Photography Awards (APPAs) where I managed to achieve 3 Silver awards… Of course I submitted 4 Gold with distinction images (at least in my mind), but something happened to them on the way over and they transformed to three silvers and one bombed out completely at 78 (No award, Silver award starts at 80 points).

The judging was certainly fierce, and there were no free rides handed out.  I look back on many of my past entries that got easy silvers, and I doubt they would even get a look in now. I think that really shows how the standard of photography in Australia has risen, my own with it I hope, and the competition is now very intense.

Santos Beach at Sunset

February 22nd, 2011

Another image from Brasil shot on the Hasselblad XPan (which i didn’t sell on the weekend), This is Santos Beach, the same beach as this previous post of the soccer players.  I lived in Santos for about 3 months back in 2003, as you can see from the buildings on the waterfront, its quite a big city, certainly by Australian standards.  Big and densely populated, with a big wide flat beach that is always packed with people running, playing football (soccer), swimming surfing reading or walking.  Brasilians love their beaches.

Sunset Surfers on Santos Beach-Brasil
