The winners of the fifth Epson International Pano Awards have been announced. This year’s competition had 3971 entries submitted from 870 photographers in 54 countries—the  largest for panoramic photography, with $40,000 in cash and prizes.

Dennis Ramos, the winner of the 2014 Open competition, said of his image (above), “It was a beautiful cloudless day with some patches of rolling fog over the bridge. My friend and I decided to go fishing that mid afternoon. I found out that my reel wasn’t working so I grabbed my camera gear instead. I took a lot of shots around including this long exposure panoramic shot of the bridge. It took me a lot of time waiting and shooting in between the fog to get a good exposure. While waiting during long exposure times, I wished I had my fishing rod as well.”



Julien Bastide from Montreal said of his image, “This is a view from below of the ‘Échangeur Turcot’ which is a three level freeway interchange. This is a well known structure in the city, because of its old age. It will be soon demolished and reconstructed. This pano has been made from three horizontal pictures, taken with a Canon 5D MarkIII and the amazing 17 mm TS-E lens (using the shifting mode).”
