We took a new approach to our photo competition, allowing you to enter via specialist photo competition website Photocrowd, which also enabled you to vote for your favourite pictures. Inspired by Sandra Bartocha’s work, the theme this month was ‘Flowers’. We had 1494 entries, and over 229,000 votes were cast.
The Expert Vote winner was Christopher Combe, for his vivid pink flower. The judges loved the way the image had a really strong colour, yet the flower itself seemed wonderfully delicate. Nick Jackson won the
Crowd Vote with his luminous purple lotus – an image which was also a big favourite with the judges.
Christopher is the winner of a fantastic Lowepro bag, while Nick will receive a bundle of guides to using Nikon SLRs and Photoshop worth £60.
If you’d like to pit your talents against other Nikon users, the theme for next issue’s competition is ‘ Tea’. It could be tea cups, portraits of tea drinkers, shots of tea ceremonies or tea plantations, macros of tea leaves, action shots of a slice of lemon falling into tea, a clipper ship… as long as there’s a tea connection, it counts! You can enter online at https:// www.photocrowd.com/c/47-tea and the closing date is 13 April 2014.
