THE WIN­NER

With the day fin­ished, it was time to re­view the im­ages and pick a win­ner from our three tal­ented read­ers...

Pick­ing an over­all win­ner was an al­most im­pos­si­ble job. Each of our three read­ers took amaz­ing shots, but one im­age stood out. Chris Sweet’s stun­ning im­age shows the pho­to­graphic X-fac­tor and his abil­ity to re­act to a sit­u­a­tion and turn it into a photo op­por­tu­nity.

So Chris, how does it feel to have won?

“I still don’t feel like my feet are back on the ground yet! Hon­estly, when Matty told me I had won, you could have knocked me down with a feather. I want to thank Matt and Jeremy for be­ing great sports and Andy for his ad­vice on the day.”

Tell us about your shot...

“The idea be­hind the im­age came to me late in the day. I was search­ing for some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent when I no­ticed two pad­dle board­ers. The sun was get­ting low and I vi­su­alised a shot with them in the frame near the arch so I thought, ‘if you don’t ask, you don’t get’ and ap­proached the board­ers. They obliged and the im­age worked out per­fectly.”

Andy Far­rer was on hand to of­fer es­sen­tial ad­vice.

Chris (pic­tured here and above) turned in a great set of im­ages.
