European Parliament picks its pollution pic winner

The European Parliament has chosen the haunting "Ploiesti Refineries" snap by Brussels-based amateur photographer Michael Moscholios as its pollution award winner

The shot, taken in Romania, illustrates the damage pollution can do.

Describing the way he takes photos Michael Moscholios says: "I use the camera in an intuitive manner, trying to capture impressions spontaneously rather than to impose a composition on them. My subjects are continually revisited and reinterpreted."

For "Ploiesti Refineries" the 49 year old he says that the colour of the sky and the "planting" of the girl symbolises ways in which pollution should be dealt with.

The photo shows, in the background, the beauty of a sunset and the dark silhouette of an industrial area and, in the foreground, an illuminated woman in white.
