K5 Image wins!

This image was selected, as one of 50 winners, to be displayed at the Brunswick Street Gallery, Melbourne as part of the Genuis Printing PureGenius Compeition 2012. There were around 1,000 entries so I am pretty thrilled.

I have made sure I mentioned that it was taken by a Pentax K5, which will be displayed online and at the gallery.

The dynamic range that was produced by the K5 allowed for the creative processing in this image.

A great camera and I am proud to promote it!

Thanks for the comments. Yes it is my shot Adam.
I used a Sigma 10-20.
The K5 never ceases to amaze me!
