Photographer of the year 2015 in projected digital image
The competition had 54 PDI entries, images that had scored 9 or above in previous competitions. Our congratulations to Marian Guess who was chosen as the winner for her image entitled Paris Metro.
Here is what Marian says – “Visiting Paris with friends we had a fairly long Metro journey and I was playing around taking pictures of reflections in the carriage windows and blurry pictures of the platforms and people on them. The carriage was full with people standing and I noticed the girl sitting opposite me in her green coat totally absorbed by her headphones. If she noticed me at all she probably thought I was taking more pictures out of the window. However the lens was relatively wide angled and she fitted into one side of the frame as I took the otherwise blurry picture of the platform. I only took one shot.”
TECHNICAL SPECS: Taken on a Sony RX100 in RAW, 0.25 seconds at f5, ISO 400.
Post processing in Lightroom with a slight crop to the left side and minor adjustments to clarity, shadows and sharpening.
