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.”
