USA URBAN LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2014 AWARD WINNER
30th May 2014
I am thrilled and delighted to announce that I am the winner of the USA Urban Landscape Photographer of the Year 2014 Competition.
This photograph was taken last year along the waterfront at Chicago, near to Navy Pier. The aluminium canoes arranged and suspended by steel wires, were part of an open air art exhibition. I was attracted by the texture of the metalwork and the subtle effect the warm morning light was having on the otherwise cool appearance of the bare aluminium structure.
This is the first year of this Competition, inspired by and led by Charlie Waite and supported by the leading Landscape Photographers in the USA.
Charlie and 12 of the best US Landscape Photographers, including David Muench and Art Wolfe, made up the panel of judges.
I entered 12 images into 3 Categories. 7 went through to the semi finals and 3 went into the finals. 1 of these 3 was the award winner for the Urban Landscape category. I was even more thrilled to be told by Charlie that the decision on my image was unanimous.
