Estonian Photographer Wins Category in Worldwide Competition ({{commentsTotal}})


A photo taken by Estonia's Külli Sparre has been named as the best in the Enhanced category in the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards.

Sparre's picture, titled “Rescue Operation,” will go against the other nine category winners, picked from 70,000 entries, at the end of April for the title of “Open Photographer of the Year.”

“Many months were needed to set up the picture. I had a clear vision of what it should look like,” Parre said, reported today.

She added the hardest detail was getting the water-filled aquarium to the scene of the photo.

Her and other finalists' photos will be exhibited in London in May. For more information click here.
