  1. As an aspirant painter in oils, I love the different dynamics that water can give to something. Depth, reflection, distortion all contribute to bring a picture of water to life. I think this photographer has chosen a brilliant theme to work with and I am excited and intrigued to see more of his work. To own a print of his photograph would inspire me to paint better and I would be very proud to own one.

  2. My Fiancé and I are busy buying a house, if we get the one we both have our heart set on, this would look amazing in the dining room 🙂

  3. I asked my mom what she wants for her birthday this year (on December 8th), and she said that she has always wanted a beautiful art piece or some amazing photography to hang in her lounge, and I wish I could make her dream come true. Sadly, I don’t think I can afford to do this for her, so this would just make my year, to be able to win the competition and give her the beautiful piece of art that she deserves!

  4. “Ansel Adams said “Most creative photographs are departures from reality and it seems to take a higher order of craft to make this departure than to simulate reality.” I agree only in part. I think also that we humans like to order, to pigeonhole, our reality, and that a camera has the power to show a different reality, one we may not readily recognise, but one which is no less a reality for all that.” – Simon Sephton!

    His work is so amazing and so relevant to what is currently happening in Cape Town with the drought! it would be an honour to win this!
