NPhoto - - Competition -

Cap­tur­ing a statue or mon­u­ment is, on the sur­face at least, ex­tremely sim­ple. The sub­ject is static, out­doors and most are in­stantly recog­nis­able. This ease can lead to sim­ply snap­ping a sharp im­age with­out con­sid­er­ing the en­vi­ron­ment, or how the light af­fects the shape and colour. Be­ing able to move around and use the back­ground can make a static ob­ject shine.

Phil Cooke’s shot of a mir­rored statue on Loch Earn at St Fil­lan’s, Perthshire, uses the beau­ti­ful sur­round­ing land­scape to em­pha­sise the statue, show­ing tech­ni­cal skill and cre­ativ­ity. Catch­ing the light at just the right point, and us­ing the available colour to such an im­pres­sive de­gree, made this im­age stand out to both judges and vot­ers alike.

If you’d like to see what the judges and your fel­low N-Photo read­ers have to say about your own im­ages (and have a shot at win­ning a fan­tas­tic Man­frotto 3N1-25 PL Pro Lite Cam­era bag worth £200, pic­tured right), why not en­ter our lat­est com­pe­ti­tion on­line at www.pho­ The theme this time is ‘Nightlife’, and as al­ways, the more creative the in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the theme, the bet­ter – but do stay on-theme!
