This was another of those competitions where it was fairly easy to pick a shortlist from the large number of entries. But from the shortlist it became harder to narrow down the winner. To be honest in the top ten any one could have taken first place. They are all extremely good in their own way.

In the end there's only one prize winner in this competition so we chose Stevie's Safari shot. We liked the smaller size of the subject in the shot to show a sense of wilderness, and the dark sombre stormy sky adds to the drama. The animal sitting on the third to provide a balanced composition and its colour harmonious with the backdrop. One that would look good as a spread in a magazine. Well done Stevie, the runner-ups and all the shortlisted for being selected in one of the more challenging competitions.

Steve is the lucky winner of a Canon PowerShot SX1 IS, Canon PIXMA MP620Wi-Fi ready inkjet  printer & 2 x packs of Photo Paper Pro II.

Congratulations.
