TOP PHOTO!

NPhoto - - Over To You… -

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.

Think you can take a shot as good? En­ter this

month’s com­pe­ti­tion!
