The annual New Hampshire Professional Photographers Association (NHPPA) was held April 19th-22nd and included a print competition that was open to all active members of NHPPA or any other Professional Photographers of America (PPA) affiliate organization. Entrants were allowed to submit up to 5 images.
This Image scored a 95 out of a possible 100 points and earned the award for Highest Score by a First Time Entrant. It was the second highest scoring image in the competition. It also received a Judges Choice Award by guest judge Nancy Green, as well as a Blue Ribbon Merit award.
I was visiting NYC for the weekend and wanted to capture a different perspective of the Brooklyn Bridge. I shot this with a long lens from the Seaport at Pier 17 in Lower Manhattan. A bright milky white sky helped create the scene. I loved the lines connecting to the people walking the bridge, the people connecting with each other, and the bridge itself connecting Brooklyn to Manhattan.
Nikon D300. 70-200mm f/2.8 lens with 1.7x teleconverter @ 340mm. ISO 200. f/4.8. 1/1000 sec.
