APOY 2011 Results Round Two – Inside a Building

The results are in for the second round of APOY. We had some fantastic entries, covering many subjects. Here we publish the images of the three Canon prize winners and list the top 50 entries.

Steve Langton, of Lancashire, wins first place in our Inside a building round of APOY 2011. Steve will receive a Canon EOS 60D and EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens worth a total of £1,299.99. The 18-million-pixel EOS 60D was voted AP?s Product of the Year 2011. It can produce stunning stills or Full HD movies using the vari-angle LCD screen and has an ISO range of up to 6400 that is expandable to 12,800. The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens covers a 29-216mm (35mm equivalent) range and offers a multi-purpose zoom range from wideangle to telephoto, featuring a 4-stop Image Stabilizer and six-blade circular aperture.

Our second-placed winner is Lee Jeffries also from Lancashire, who will receive Canon?s 14.1-million-pixel PowerShot SX30 IS with a 35x zoom and case, worth £476.

Simona Bonanno of Italy finished third in the round and wins Canon?s 12.1-million-pixel PowerShot SX130 IS with a 12x zoom (equivalent to 28-336mm in 35mm) and case, worth £222.


1st Steve Langton, Lancashire 43pts

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, 24-105mm, 1/320sec at f/7.1, ISO 200

Steve took this image in the kitchen of a friend?s house near Bagni di Lucca in Tuscany, Italy. ?It was an old traditional Italian house that happens to have a great view from the window,? says Steve. ?I was trying to create the effect of A Room with a View, capturing both the attractive features of the traditional Tuscan farmhouse and the beautiful landscape outside?

Judges say We love the way the dining paraphernalia in the foreground balances with the view of the rolling hills outside. The rustic colours and use of natural light complement the image perfectly


2nd Lee Jeffries, Lancashire 42pts

Canon EOS 5D, 24mm, 1/120sec at f/4.1, ISO 100

?I took this image at the civic centre in Bolton, Lancashire,? says Lee. ?I originally wanted to capture the streaming light and the rest of the image developed from there?

Judges say There is something rather beguiling about Lee?s image. His sensitive portrayal of light and subject is quite breathtaking


3rd Simona Bonanno, Italy 41pts

Nikon D80, 18-35mm, 1/60sec at f/3.5, ISO 400

?Cinemas where I live used to be intimate and unique,? says Simona. ?Today they all seem the same and the people look confused and lost?

Judges say A superb composition, wonderfully executed ? well done!
