1st Outdoor Swimming Pool, Bude - Paul Cooper, Hereford 50pts
Paul Cooper, Hereford 50pts Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 28-300mm, 180secs at f/8, ISO 200, Big Stopper ND filter, tripod When we featured an abstract round in APOY 2013, we were overwhelmed by the response. With this in mind, we knew we had to include an abstract round for 2015. This winning image from Paul Cooper succeeds in that it takes a mundane outdoor pool scene and renders it unfamiliar. Paul used a Big Stopper ND filter and Color Efex Pro to give the picture a weird abstract quality. Whats particularly nice is the consistency of tone the background is actually the ocean.
