Two Images Nominated By Judges
Delighted to share that two of my images were nominated in the 10th Annual International Color Awards. Alas no wins, but still nice to get a couple of images chosen out of the 6178 entries. In a slight departure from my normal work, one of the images was in the Abstract category and the other in Fine Art.

Nominee In The People Category
Somehow managed to miss this completely! One of my images, titled Street Style, reached the position of nominee in the people category of the International Color Awards announced in April 2015.

The image was shot on a Leica M9 and processed in Adobe Lightroom. The image was then finished in Alienskin Exposure 6.
Four Images Nominated
Happy to share that four of my images were nominated in the 9th B&W Spider Awards, against stiff competition from 8508 other images. Although none of the images went on to win, it’s still nice to get nominated.
Here are three of the images, all from the People Category:

The fourth image is a figure study in the Nude category and as a result contains nudity, so if offended by such imagery, kindly consider this before clicking on this link.
The images were all shot on Leica cameras (Type 240 and M9) and Leica lenses, processed in Aperture and Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2.
