NAUTICAL PHOTOGRAPH COMPETITION 2020
and the winner is...


Many thanks to Anthony Cullen for braving the unenviable task of judging. He has offered the following observations:

I thought the winning shot was very atmospheric, good use of reflections and nice composition. Overall very strong entries with thought given to:

Leading lines (5,9,14,17,19,22,24,26,36,37)
Silhouettes (1,8,15,19,33,37,42)
Backlighting (1,5,8,15,16,17,21,33,37,42)
Composition (1,2,5,6,8,15,17,19,21,24,25,26,33,37,42)
Time of day (2,7,15,26,21,22,33,42)
Reflections (2,15,17,26,19,21,33,38,42)

and, very importantly, for a trying 2020...humour (11)”!

 

Thanks to everyone who has supported this competition and particularly Lee Foster, who had to work out how to do it!
