Have you won Sony's Twilight competition? - Sony Europe have chosen the winners for their Twilight photography competition.
Michael, and his wife Philomena, will be flying off to the Iguazú Falls in Argentina while Andrew will be taking his wife Michelle, for a belated anniversary trip to Venice in Italy.
Andrew's image is of Whiteford Lighthouse, the only remaining cast iron lighthouse in the United Kingdom. It is located in the Burry Estuary off the coast at Whiteford Point near Whiteford Sands, South Wales. The lighthouse is no longer in operation and being where it is, it's quite a trip to get to it. Andrew waited a long time for the outgoing tide and good weather to coincide with the evening light for the shot.
Andrew, who's been a member of ePHOTOzine for four years, said: "Unfortunately all of these things came together on the day of my anniversary so thinking quickly, I announced that for our anniversary we were going on a picnic - no guesses as to where we went. We both enjoyed the evening, even though it took an hour to get back to the car in the dark, and it was great to get the pictures I wanted."
Michael Murphy is a skydiving photographer and his image was taken just before the last light of the day, just after the sun had set on the horizon. Just inside the Visual Flying Rules for skydiving.
"From a photographic stance there are many difficulties facing a photographer trying to capture this type of shot,” explained Mike who's also been a member of ePHOTOzine for four years.
"My intention with this shot was to catch the formation on the hill or steepest part of the exit. This was the only shot that was usable on this jump and everything just worked out as planned."
Andrew added: "It's absolutely fantastic to win the competition. The picture was inspired by so many fantastic landscape photographers on ePHOTOzine. I didn't think I was in with a chance given the company I was in. But it just goes to prove, 'you've got to be in it to win it'! Now I can take the wife somewhere she deserves!"
Sony were hugely impressed with the quality of images that have been submitted. They said: "ePHOTOzine readers really seemed to embrace the challenge of depicting what twilight meant to them in their photography."
Well done guys!
