Congratulations to Stian Nesoy who has won our Landscape Photography Competition with his image ‘Starry Night’. You can see his image, the two runners up and the top 20 selected images at The Bridge Lounge in London from 26 September to early 2017.
These unique ice crystals were captured on a frozen river the high mountains of Norway’s west, winter of 2016. The image was shot in the narrow window of time between the river freezing over, but before snow blanketed the landscape. All while open water was found nearby, allowing the hoarfrost conditions needed to form the crystals. Seen here the crystals were at the largest I’ve seen before snow covered them.
In order to accurately capture the scene in faint moonlight, it was necessary to capture many focus points across the scene along with varying exposure times. All of which was painstakingly put together in post processing of the image.
The top 20 photographers are: Andrea Silva, Angela Baschieri, Avinash Little, David Neve, Diego Cappella, Donna Richardson, George Digalakis, Joanna Fenning, Jodie House, Max Mann, Nicolas Lopez, Philip Moore, Richard Harris, Sandra Wilks, Stephen Knight, Stian Nesoy, Teng Ruen Ban, Thomas Hancock, Vaibhav Kaul and Viktoryia Vinnikava.
You can see these wonderful images from 26 September – early 2017.
Street photography has been a passion of mine for longer than I choose to admit to and normally I just shoot for myself, as I enjoy spending a day out on the streets of London looking for opportunities.
However it’s always nice to get a chance to measure yourself against your peers. So when I saw the London Photo Festival launch a street photography competition on social media, I jumped at the chance to enter. I then forgot about it until it was announced that I was one of 20 finalists to be exhibited at the Bridge Lounge, near London Bridge, from over 1000 entries from all across the world.
Even more amazing was that at the preview launch evening it was I announced that I was 2nd runner up winning a trophy and a cash prize! I feel it an honour to have my work recognised in this way and it has inspired me on to go out and shoot more street photography whenever I get the opportunity.
The top 3 cash prize winners of our new street photography competition will be announced tomorrow evening – keep posted to find out who they are!
