THE BEST OF BIRDS IN FLIGHT
The winners of our latest contest with Photocrowd have been revealed
In our most recent contest in association with Photocrowd we challenged you to submit your best images that successfully captured birds in flight, and after sifting through over 3,000 stunning photos the winners have been selected.
Both crowd-voted and expert winners will receive a Loupedeck (£220). Congratulations to all of the winners!
1ST PLACE WINNER WHOOPER SWANS IN FLIGHT
PHOTOGRAPHER: Haitong Yu OUR COMMENT: This striking and unique image really stood out for us from all of the other entries in this contest. The dark tones of the background really help to make the swans stand out, and the beautifully blurred wings serve to convey the movement of the creatures.
2ND PLACE INTO THE STORM
PHOTOGRAPHER: John Gooday OUR COMMENT: This is a very striking image of a red kite. The photographer has skilfully captured a sharp image of the bird while blurring out the background using a wide aperture and extremely long lens. This is the perfect image for the Birds in Flight brief.
3RD PLACE CHAOS!
PHOTOGRAPHER: Gladys Klip OUR COMMENT: This bright and wintry capture really caught our attention. Like the first-place expert winner, this is a unique take on the Birds in Flight theme that we really love. The movement is blurred, but is still noticeable and the swan’s head is wonderfully sharp.
