Description Merit Award winner for Marinabay Countdown Contest 2009/10.Singapore fireworks ceremony during countdown to 2010 at Marina Bay. Again I was at the spot 8 hours before the 10mins show and was standing exactly in front of the televison crew platform.Here I am trying to imagine the future looks of Marina Bay skyline once the much anticipated SANDS opens while keeping fireworks as centre of attraction. I have composed fireworks as bouquet of flowers welcoming people in Singapore as the new year arrives.
Souvik Bhattacharya, Singapore Member Since June 2009 Artist Statement My interest about photography started 5 years back. It all began with an Olympus film camera and couple of my portrait and landscape shots were highly appreciated. From then this photography bug got in my mind and after that in another couple of years end up buying Sony Cybershot DSC-H1which was my first step to digital world of photography.
Around couple of years back entered DSLR world and result was quiet promising which in same time also very encouraging to go beyond limits.
