Both crowd-voted and expert winners will receive a Vanguard VEO DISCOVER 41 bag (£69.99) and VEO AM-204 monopod (£34.99). Congratulations to the winners!
1ST PLACE WINNER
PHOTOGRAPHER: Chee Keong Lim
OUR COMMENT: We really love this black and white shot – the photographer has captured the dramatic landscape with absolute skill. The image has been very well timed and the beams of light streaming through the clouds really make this photo particularly special.
PHOTOGRAPHER: Hlaing Myint Min
OUR COMMENT: The abstract feel of this stunning shot really stood out for us. It isn’t instantly clear what the image is of and this helps to draw the viewer in. The three figures help to tie the image together and the high-contrast tones make it very impactful.
PHOTOGRAPHER: Kevin Evans
OUR COMMENT: This image has been composed very well. We love the angle that the photograph has been shot at and the long exposure has blurred the sky beautifully. The tones here are really nice and the viewer’s eyes are pulled straight into the centre of the image.
