Waiting for the signal – Andrew Pringle

Waiting for the signal.

This photo was taken just outside Didcot station as the driver and fireman waited for the points to change. I was a long way off so used my 100 ñ 400mm lens to take this image. This helped as they were unaware of me as I captured a moment from a bygone age.

1st Place

Arctic Terns – Duncan Cooke

This is an old image taken with my first DLSR, Canon 400 and kit lens,and does have some quality issues, but I really like the composition of the two birds interaction.

In the colour version the quality problems are more obvious, but most of those are lost in the conversion to B/W.

1st Place

Acorns – Duncan Cooke

Autumn produces some great colours and that’s what I tried to capture with this image.

Using a tripod allowed a higher f stop and greater depth of field and meant a slow shutter speed wasn’t a problem.

 

 

 

 

 

2nd Place

Aldingham sunset fantasy – James Marsden

The sunrise was taken at Aldingham Beach.

I have used photoshop to add the tree and the water using the software and a tree used in a old picture i had taken to create the shot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3rd Place

Great Gable – Duncan Cooke

Wasdale, one of my favourite places in the Lake District.

The light dusting of snow picks out the detail in the rock formations and the Winter light gives great clarity.

Rydal Cave – Craig Breakey
