International Photography Awards IPA

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

The  International Photography Awards (IPA)  is one of the most important photography competitions in the world. In this contest, based in Los Angeles (USA), take part prominent professional and amateur photographers from all over the world. This year’s 2010 entries spanned 103 countries worldwide with approximately 15,000 photographs.  Jurors had the challenging task of reducing that number to 330 winners from all the categories.  The photographers participate in two groups: professionals and non-professionals, which in turn are divided into 63 sub-categories or themes. My work ” 2000 Years ” was awarded with Honorable Mention in ” Historic Architecture ” category Professional.

The picture ” 2000 Years ” was taken in October 2008 in the ruins of the Roman Forum in Rome, Italy. After a sunny day, came suddenly a storm threat. The sky became dramatic and the panorama showed the relentless passage of time. With a special white balance on my camera, I could highlight and capture the scene.
