Cocoa, FL— "Hall Road Park Backwater," a High Dynamic Resolution color image taken by local photographer, Ed Quillian, was selected to be among the top 14% photograph artworks out of over 10,000 photographs submitted in the 34th International Annual Spring Photography Contest color category, and has been awarded a "Finalist Certificate". The "Hall Road Park Backwater" photograph will also be published in the hardcover book "Best of Photography 2014" produced by Photographer's Forum Magazine.
Ed says “It has been an honor to be a published photographer. Being a finalist in an international photography competition has been a dream. Utilizing High Dynamic Resolution with the color image, brings out the dark shadows in the image and enhances the details of the photograph. It makes you stay in the photograph and look at it. As a photographer that is what I am trying to achieve from the viewer."
