Great news here! I’m happy again this year to announce that I’ve won an Honorable Mention for the shot “Sunrise on Amaharashi” in the PX3 Prix de la Photographie International Award 2015.
The winning shot, submitted in the “Landscape” category, is a reinterpretation of the photograph “Amaharashi dark gold sunrise” that you probably already know (you can find it on this website as well as in my gallery on 500px), in which I’ve corrected some processing errors. I’m pleased to know that my work has been positively judged by a panel of first-class judges and I hope that you would appreciate it as well.
Events like this are a great reward for my work and represent a real fuel that makes me put more and more passion and commitment to put on images my love for our beautiful planet, despite the many obstacles and difficulties I’m facing recently.
I’d like to congratulate with the many great photographers who have taken part and the ones who have been awarded in this 2015 edition of the PX3 Prix de la Photographie.
