Pink Submissions #02 Editor’s Picks
(Special Feature & Winners Announcement)
Proudly Sponsored by Cathay Photo.
05th September 2014, Singapore – Following our first successful run of the Pink Submissions by Pink Photographers Singapore (PPSG) a few weeks ago, we decided to do a Round 2. Our Sponsor Cathay Photo had given the theme “Color Changes Everything” for this round so that all submissions will be based on this theme. Within hours of posting the theme, entries poured in. In total, we received over 60+ submissions from the ladies at PPSG and this round, the photo standards are fiercely competed and the creativity level raised to a new high.
“These are (the submitted photos) beautiful photos. Our marketing team had a pretty tough time deciding the winners. But we finally managed to pick the three that best depict the theme given by us and we liked best!” – CT, Cathay Photo.
We were not able to feature every submitted photos so the Editor had picked out the below photos from the crop to run this feature.

Now color really changes everything here.” – AL, Editor.
Editor’s Pick #10 – Photo by Magdalene Teo-Yong

Editor’s Pick #11 – Photo by Nicole Wong

Editor’s Pick #12 – Photo by Sue Levens
“Sue submitted this snapshot of a girl walking near the water feature at Marina Bay, Singapore. The huge deep colored flower display casted its reflections on the lotus pond creating an interesting scene.
