A photo by a Buena Vista University senior David Ekstrom has been selected in the finalist category of an international contest sponsored by Photographer's Forum magazine and Nikon. He is a digital media major from Odebolt.
Of over 16,000 photos submitted for the competition, 1,116 were selected as finalists. His photo will be included in the Best of College Photography book to be published later this year by Photographer's Forum.
David took the photo — entitled "Overlook on Ponte Vecchio Bridge" — near sunset in Florence, Italy in 2012 when he was on a BVU January interim travel course. He used a Canon 60D camera set at 1/60 second, an aperture of f/3.5, and ISO 300, with minor touchup using Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
