Scorpio by Ian Kippax
Scorpio: National Historic Ships UK’s winning image, Scorpio, taken by Ian Kippax from Ely in Cambridgeshire.

The winners of National Historic Ships UK’s 2012 photography competition were revealed at a prestigious awards ceremony yesterday, which took place onboard HMS Belfast with guest of honour HRH The Princess Royal presenting the awards.

NHS-UK’s annual photography competition, now in its third year, offered five categories up for grabs with a team of expert judges looking for entries with imagination, creativity and unusual perspectives in capturing the spirit of the UK’s maritime heritage.

Ian Kippax from Ely was chosen as the overall winner for 2012 with his image, Scorpio, being chosen from over 450 entries as the image that truly captured the judge’s attention, and scooping the £1,000 prize to be spent directly on one of the vessels on the National Register of Historic Vessels of his choice. A copy of Scorpio was also presented to HRH The Princess Royal as a commemorative gift.

New for 2012, NHS-UK also launched the search for the Young Photographer of the Year, encouraging primary and secondary school children to showcase their photography skills. 15 year old Hannah Davies from Bishopston Comprehensive School in Swansea was the winner of this coveted award with her entry, 'Mumbles Lifeboat Station', and received a digital camera for her school as well as a visit to a historic vessel for her and her class.

Strong, gritty image with strong mood but very very processed - a subject currently running in the forums. The rain is only visible where there are buildings as background and a little in the very strong halo on the buildings. I know rain will vary in visibility according to background but it does look odd and false - no apparent rain in the top left at all. I don't mind PS but sometimes, and now more often, the winners of comps are those who edit the best .. But this looks more like PS gone a little too far and not used subtly ... (tin hat on).

Hmmmm.... that is exactly my thought about the rain, it is a bit too uniformed
