Argus 2008 finalist2008 seems to become a rather succesful year. After having won this years Grasduinen competition, I am very happy to announce that my image of a common blackbird singing on a streetlight was chosen as a finalist in the ‘night’ category of the 2008 Argus photo contest.

Whether my photo is awarded a prize, a highly commended nomination or nothing at all will be announced during the award ceremony in December. Until that time, all 60 nominated images are to be found on the Argus website.

The public can choose their own favourite, and this photo will be awarded the ‘prize of the public’. So if you are reading this blog, you might as well click here and vote for my photo! The whole process will only take a few mouse clicks and a minute of your time.

Common Blackbird on streetlight; Canon 20D w. 500/4 IS and 1,4X; 1/30s at F5,6 and ISO 800; Beanbag from garbage bin.
