Winner of the 2015 SMH "The Big Picture" Travel Competition

30th December 2015
Japan trip in 2016
This is just so exciting - a trip for two to Japan compliments of Singapore Airlines, Conrad Tokyo and The Hyatt regency in Kyoto! The competition was run by the Sydney Morning Herald "Traveller" section called "The Big Picture". It was a Travel photography competition. My winning photograph was called "A Leap of Faith" - it is a moment, an impala in flight with a single baboon as a spectator. The judges comments were:

"The image creates a light-hearted scene that is balanced in composition - as though it was contrived, yet we know it could not have been. The frame is panoramic in shape which, if cropped, could have accentuated the moment but we feel that the space on the right balances the jaunty leap. The photographer has captured a great moment of travel"

My cousin Wendy has agreed to travel to Japan with me and we are looking forward to planning a very exciting and very much appreciated trip!
