Competition Results Round Four - Interior Architecture

APOY 2013 Competition Results Round Four – Interior Architecture

Bill Sell, of Carmarthen, is the winner of our Interior Architecture round of APOY 2013. Bill will receive a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 with Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Asph Mega OIS and Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 Asph lenses worth £1,347.98. The G5 is a digital single-lens mirrorless camera with a 16.05-million-pixel, four thirds, Live MOS sensor.

 It has 6fps high-speed continuous shooting, a 3in, 920,000-dot articulated LCD touchscreen, and a 1.44-million-dot EVF. The Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 Asph lens has a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture that provides superb image quality with minimum distortion, plus a beautiful soft focus.

Our second-placed winner is Helen Groumas, of Berlin in Germany, who will receive a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 worth £469.99. This high-spec compact camera has a 10.1-million-pixel High-Sensitivity MOS sensor, f/1.4-2.3 
(24-90mm equivalent) Leica Vario-Summilux lens and full manual control.

Ian Butterworth, of Wetherby in West Yorkshire, finished third in the

round and wins a Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS1 (in white) worth £119.99.

Panasonic claims that the 16.1-million-pixel XS1 has the world’s

slimmest body profile, and it’s certainly skinny with a 14mm-deep body.

Its 5x optical zoom with 24mm ultra-wideangle lens and tiny form make

the XS1 the ultimate carry-it-with-you-everywhere camera.

Red door

Judges say:’Sometimes during the judging process a shot just leaps out at us right away. Bill’s brilliant interpretation of the brief is definitely one of those shots. The strong red against the deep black is a such a striking sight that we couldn’t help but award Bill first place in this round’.

2nd Helen Groumas, Germany 45pts

Olympus OM-D EM-5, 20mm, 1/4000sec at f/2.2, ISO 1600

‘Town in Box’

Judges say:’Like Bill’s shot, Helen’s image has a truly distinctive look. Every element of this shot works. The person, the camera position and the tonal range are great. It’s a very rewarding image

Canon PowerShot G12, 1/8sec at f/3.2, ISO 400

Duveen Gallery

Judges say:’We awarded Ian third place because of the quiet and reflective atmosphere of his image. Its tranquil nature appealed to the judges, but more than that it’s a confidently composed and nicely lit image and a more than worthy third place.’
