International Color Awards 2015

Hej,

Selv om jeg klarede mig bedre sidste år i den selv samme og meget prestigefyldte konkurrence blev jeg alligevel hammer glad over "kun", at blive nomineret i år, da jeg havde sendt billedet ind til en kategori hvor jeg ellers ikke er så aktiv, nemlig Fashion !

Det var nogle helt fantastiske billeder som var med i finalen i år - og det gælder alle kategorier. Utroligt inspirerende, synes jeg. Men igen, konkurrence billeder ER lidt ud over det sædvanlige : De er gerne taget et eller andet vanvittigt eksotisk sted, eller også har fotografen været der på det helt rigtige sted, det helt rigtige tidspunkt, eller også er de taget lige ud af fantasien og kreeret derefter. Spændende, men også meget tidskrævende.

Nå, men her kommer mit nominerede billede, og den pressemeddelelse, som de sendte med (og den er selvfølgelig på engelsk) :

"Portrait of a Pearl"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
