Pentax Winners!

The Pentax K-1 and D FA 15-30mm F2.8 are winners...

I entered four pictures taken with the K-1 in the Captured at Kew Category of the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition in October not expecting to go far. In November two of them got shortlisted and then in January I was informed that an entry had won an award – Commended, Highly Commended, Finalist, 1st, 2nd or 3rd place.

Now my picture "The Sackler Crossing" has been awarded 1st Place in the Captured at Kew Category of the competition:

The Sackler Crossing
Awarded 1st Place
International Garden Photographer of the Year
Competition 11
Category Captured at Kew

It was a very cold January morning in Kew Gardens as I stood on the north side of the lake, watching the sunrise over the Sackler Crossing. The vibrant reds of the foreground Cornus beautifully complemented the hues of the morning sky. The crossing was named after philanthropists Dr Mortimer and Dame Theresa Sackler, whose donation made its construction possible.

I've attended the press launch of the IGPOTY winners exhibition at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew where my picture is on display. I was also presented with a certificate and prize.

The exhibition is now open and will tour the UK and abroad. My picture has also been printed in lavish book of the competition and has already appeared online/print. Kew Gardens have now sent me a prize.

I'd never entered a competition before!

You all have this wonderful camera and lenses so go out and see what you can achieve.

SUPER DUPER!!. Glad to see a picture taken by a Pentax get an award, but credit where credit is due: it's the photographer who made the image.

This. I'm not disputing the quality of the camera or lens - they're both excellent - but it's still the photographer who makes the image.

Congratulations!
