Another 'Commended' from the Photocrowd Expert Judges

June 10, 2015

Delighted to get another Commended recognition in a Photocrowd competition – this time from the expert judge of the recent Interiors competition Andy Carver. The brief was to submit a shot taken indoors in what was described as ‘dazzling palaces and cosy living rooms, dark libraries and sterile offices, imposing factories and elegant restaurants’.

I opted for a rather urban shot, taken in the San Petro train station in Rome last year. I was standing there worrying how I was going to get my two weeks’ worth of cruise luggage in a wheelie case up the stairs (before wussing out and taking a taxi to the port!) when I noticed the fabulous curves of the windows and the way the light was shining through onto what was otherwise a pretty dull scene. Click the picture on the right to see the full image, or view it in my Urban Landscapes Gallery.

I know it’s not an obviously beautiful shot, so it was great to get the recognition from such a well-respected expert judge. As well as running photography workshops through his company See-41, Andy Carver takes pictures of both interiors and events, shooting everything from the Serbian Royal Family to Chelsea Football club. He was also commissioned by the Mayor of London to photograph the London 2012 Olympics.
