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.
