Here’s the finalist number six in the Nature India Photo Contest 2015:
Subrata Bal, Rourkela, Odisha, India
Photo Caption: ‘Wooden Frames’
Subrata shot this black and white frame while staying in a hotel in Kargil, Jammu and Kashmir. At a glance, the picture gives an illusion of a conical rooftop in the background when seen through the wooden planks in the foreground. The rather simple architecture gets another clever dimension when seen through this angle. He says this about the picture: “Most part of this hotel was made of wood. While sipping a cup of tea in the balcony, I saw the wooden pattern and a queue of white towels being dried on a string. I liked the frame and captured the moment.”
Congratulations Subrata and all the best for the final round!
The Nature India photo contest 2015 with the theme ‘Patterns’ has received a huge number of entries. The theme was conceived with the idea of appreciating the art in all things science — geometric, natural, abstract, under the microscope, in/on the human body or in space.
Both amateurs and professional photographers, scientists and non-scientists have sent in entries shot on mobile cameras, point and shoot cameras to high-end DSLRs. Choosing the final three from across countries, landscapes, demographics and cultures will be a tough job for the Nature India design and editorial team.
As a run up to the final announcement of three winners, we are rolling out the top 15 finalists (in no particular order of merit) this fortnight on the Indigenus blog as well as our social media platforms (Twitter and Facebook). The final results will be announced within November 2015.
Nature India’s final decision to chose the winner will be partly influenced by the engagement and reception he/she receives here at the Indigenus blog, on Twitter and on Facebook. To give all finalists a fair chance, we will take into consideration the social media engagement of each picture only during the first seven days of its announcement.
So watch out for the rest of the finalists. Promote, share and like your favourite entries with the hashtag #NatureIndphoto.
