A photography novice has won an iPad for his spectacular sunset shot of Porirua s central city area. Shane Wetzel, a mechanic at his family s business Porirua Cycle & Mower Centre, won a Porirua Chamber of Commerce s central business district photo competition -- part of a campaign to get people enthusiastic about the city centre. Hundreds of photos were entered. However, Mr Wetzel s shot stood out for the three judges -- chamber executive director Holly Thompson, Mayor Nick Leg- gett and Kapi-Mana News reporter Andrea O Neil. I m quite blown away, actu- ally, Mr Wetzel said. I ve always enjoyed taking photos but I ve only started taking them seriously lately. Mr Wetzel submitted 14 photos in the competition, going out with his camera in the morning, at lunchtime and in the evening in the hope of getting a good shot. The winning shot was taken at sunset from Heriot Dr, by Bunnings, using a tripod and Mr Wetzel s Fujifilm SL 300 camera. The sunset was a stunning orange already but Mr Wetzel used photoshop to make sure the photo reflected its magnificence. Ms Thompson said the photo was a reminder of how beautiful Porirua s city centre could be. It just captured something I think we all forget, she said. What we wanted was to see the city through other people s eyes. The photo competition was a huge success and would be repeated regularly, she said.
