Thank you to all the photographers that participated in the Playing With Exposure Photo Contest, sharing their best photos showing experimental exposures. Congratulations to the winners and finalists, and a special round of applause for the Grand Jury Winner who wins a Samsung NX500 Interchangeable Lens Camera.

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Patrick Güller for his collaboration as a guest judge. Patrick Güller is a self taught photographer from Switzerland. His passion for visual arts started early as he already loved filming his surroundings when he was a child. After getting his first DSLR camera he also felt interested in photography and decided to start a landscape account on Instagram. Since then, a lot of things happened and he is now working with Canon Switzerland and traveling around the world to fully live his passion.
