Interface Images photo selected as an editor's choice in Canon Professional Network competition

One of David Smith's images of Guatemalan women fruit sellers has been selected as an editor's choice in a Canon Professional Network (CPN) competition of travel, landscape and architecture images worldwide. During September CPN readers from around the world submitted their travel, landscape and architecture images for review by GEO Saison Picture Editor Karin Rogers.

In a multimedia presentation she chooses 32 pictures and talks in detail about her favourite ones.

She also gives advice to photographers hoping to make a career in travel photography. Rogers told CPN: "Ten years ago [GEO Saison] would have been content with showing beautiful, calm landscapes. Nowadays that's not enough - you want to meet the people [of a destination], you want something more personal, livelier, more action."

Rogers said that her final choices are all images that would be considered by GEO Saison. "Being a travel magazine, we want to show the beautiful world. [Our stories] are always on the positive side," she added.

David Smith, founder of Interface Images commented this image (above) was taken on a recent tour of Central America at the UNESCO site in Antigua, Guatemala. I agree with Karin's comments about this image and is the style of ethnic life and portraits we love to photograph across the world.
