Foto8 award

Foto8 Award & Summer Show 2008
We are pleased to annouce that the winner of the Foto8 Award for 'Best in Show' at this year's Summer Show, goes to....Guido Castagnoli for his image: Street to the main station, Shimada City, Japan 2007 taken from the series Provincial Japan.
The judges were impressed by the high standard of all the work but they were particularly drawn to the colouring and mysterious 1950s, bleached effect of Castagnoli’s print, commenting: “This is an image that will continue to be intriguing each time one looks at it. It is both strange and beautiful.”
stay tuned for more from Guido in the Fblog, soon....

I love this shot. It's has a 50s feel to it. I love the color and the lack of cars!
