Our ‘Wide An­gle View’ com­pe­ti­tion win­ners show­cased

we chal­lenge you to take the most cre­ative and ar­rest­ing shot around a theme, and share it with the on­line com­mu­nity at Pho­tocrowd

(www.pho­tocrowd.com), where you’ll can browse the en­tries and vote for your favourites. The best en­tries re­ceive a cri­tique from our judg­ing panel – and one win­ner re­ceives a spe­cial prize!

Your mis­sion in is­sue 191 was to cap­ture a wide-an­gle view. The judges were blown away by the high stan­dard of en­tries in this com­pe­ti­tion, with gor­geous shots taken from all around the world. The fol­low­ing win­ners all did some­thing a lit­tle spe­cial…

This month’s photo as­sign­ment is to shoot into the wild! You can find all of the de­tails over the page…

We love this wide-an­gle view of the Bo­li­vian salt flats. On a ba­sic level this photo more than sat­is­fies the com­pe­ti­tion brief, but its spirit of ad­ven­ture gives it a win­ning edge.

Travel is a great way to widen your ex­pe­ri­ence of the world – and through the stun­ning aes­thet­ics of this scene, Guy is invit­ing us to be­come part of the ad­ven­ture too. The min­i­mal com­po­si­tion and sub­tle colour pal­ette are sub­lime. The use of re­flec­tion and care­ful po­si­tion­ing of the ve­hi­cles work per­fectly. Kit Canon EOS 350D with 18-55mm lens Ex­po­sure 1/200 sec at f/10, ISO 100

The beau­ti­ful black-and-white shapes in this im­age give it a graphic look that al­most makes it feel like an il­lus­tra­tion. There’s a de­cid­edly Escher-es­que qual­ity to the an­gles and the per­spec­tive, and it’s dif­fi­cult to make vis­ual sense of what’s go­ing on, which adds to the in­trigue. The harsh monochrome con­ver­sion, high con­trast and grain­i­ness all add to the artis­tic qual­ity of the im­age. No shoot­ing in­for­ma­tion

Joe Stein­man

Not your typ­i­cal wide-an­gle scene, this vi­brant im­age is packed with lus­cious de­tail that in­vites you into the lo­ca­tion, search­ing for lit­tle vi­gnettes of nat­u­ral life hid­ing in the shad­ows. The tones have been han­dled well, with a good range of de­tail in both the high­lights and shad­ows with­out ap­pear­ing over-cooked. The com­po­si­tion is per­fectly bal­anced, as the gen­tle arch of the tree’s branch curves across the top of the frame, and the wa­ter and light leads you into the dis­tance. Kit Canon EOS 70D with 18-35mm lens Ex­po­sure 1 sec at f/16, ISO 100
