Sigma “Eye of the Photographer” Competition…

by on Jan.16, 2013, under Life, Photography

Last year I’d entered two images into a photography competition sponsored by Sigma, and didn’t think much more of it as you do…

I received an email late last week indicating I’d won a prize and had anyone contacted me about it yet…

Anyway to cut a long story short I’d won first place in the “Eye of the Photographer” competition.

The best part about this is I’d won $3,000 of my choice of any Sigma lenses for which I’m particularly happy. This is especially good news since with my recent move to FX I was seriously eyeing off the new Sigma 35/1.4 and their 15mm f/2.8 fullframe fisheye and wondering which of the two I might be able to convince the boss I could buy. Now my decision rests on what third lens I’m also going to choose – their highly regarded 85/1.4, the new 105/2.8 macro or something else…

… and the image which won was this “Starry Eyed” image taken out in country NSW

NIKON D7000 + 12.0-24.0 mm f/4.0 @ 12 mm, 60 sec at f/4, ISO 1250
