The panel of judges of the III Photography Contest: “Your Eye Outside”, chaired by the prestigious photographer Larry Merrill have awarded the following prizes: 

 1st Prize of 300€ for Mar Agra Roldán

 Larry Merrill´s comments on this photograph: 

“I admired this photo in particular because of its element of surprise.  It reconfirms none of my stereotypes of Istanbul.  Yet it engages architecture but in an offhanded off-balanced sort of way.  It’s tilted horizon emphasizes the inclined raised rows of brick and their shadows. The image is then anchored by the dainty symmetry of the three groups of three people distributed through the space”

 

2nd Prize of 100€ for: Borja Barros Cevallos

Larry Merrill´s comments on this photograph: 

“This image takes good advantage  of its unusual location and vantage point as well as extreme wide angle view.  It there are things to savor at every distance.  In the foreground there is the stone texture of the walls and columns, exterior feeling.  Also the iron work of the balustrade defines the limit of near space.  The overall view has borders that take in many of the beautiful features of the building, from the domed top to the floor level. The view of the light fixtures from above, in itself unusual, but from the balcony level they appear to float above the people at floor level, for whose benefit they hover”.

 

 

 3rd Prize of 100€ for: Álvaro Antoranz Miguel 

 

Larry Merrill´s comments on this photograph:

“I give this picture credit for using a oft-used technique–the picture of the picture– in a way that has a new element that takes advantage of an aspect of the digital camera that doesn’t exist in the analog machine.  That is the monitor screen.  Looking carefully there is a face reflected on the screen, possibly, though not necessarily, that of the photographer.  The face is superimposed on the interview view from ground level.  Also the prominence of the gloves being worn indoors raises the question of the temperature in the building.”
