Painter - 40pts, Second place
Roberto de Andrade, Brazil Olympus C-60Z, 1/125ssec at f/7.1, ISO 100 Roberto began photography shooting mainly Kodak Tri-X 400 black and white film. Last year he rediscovered his passion for the hobby by uploading his work to numerous photo-sharing websites that gave him feedback on his work. A web designer by day, Roberto spotted this painter from the window of his office. I waited about 15 minutes for him to get in the position I wanted while I composed my shot, he says. I like minimalist compositions and simple, effective views. Judges say, 'Robertos keen eye has helped him make a simple, graphic image that is bold and attention grabbing. Well done.'
