Dee Zunker’s “Esperson Reflection”

Photographer Dee Zunker
Title Esperson Reflection
Category May 2013 / Gold / Color / Second Place
Location Downtown Houston, TX
Reason For Making the Image I had walked around the Neils Esperson Building making images of reflections on several occasions trying to capture the old charm of the architecture. I walked to the front door to peak inside, turned around and saw the framing of the reflection by the columns. The sun was in teh right spot to make the reflection pop.

George Phile’s “Statues”

Photographer George Phile
Title Statues
Category May 2013 / Special Assignment “Beyond Appearances”/ Third Place
Location Dublin, Ireland
Reason For Making the Image My wife and I were on a Transatlantic Cruise from Harwich, England to Boston with our daughter and her family and we saw these people in Dublin, Ireland.  I thought it was an interesting picture of fake statues and a real dog.  I didn’t have but a moment to take this picture because of the crowds of people shopping and had no way to set it up so there was a great background.  So I had to take some of the good with some of the bad and the picture turned out fine.

George Phile’s “Riding the Wind”

Photographer George Phile
Title Riding the Wind
Category May 2013 / Bronze/ Color / First Place
Location Fort Funston, San Francisco, CA
Reason For Making the Image I am from San Francisco and have visited there at least one a year for the last 50 years or so and knew that Fort Funston was an ideal place for watching hang gliders.  I was in San Francisco for three weeks in May and spent parts of a couple of days at Fort Funston and took lots of pictures.   The one I entered seemed to capture the moment just before he heads north again. I liked the hang glider with the background of the coast as opposed to just the hang glider with the sky as background.
