Congratulations to ePHOTOzine member Steve Crampton, aka CanonMan, who's won the Alta Pro 263 AGH Tripod courtesy of Vanguard!

His shot 'Height of summer' impressed the judges over at Vanguard with its sharpness. They commented that they liked the vast clarity of the shot.

"It’s difficult to shoot flowers when they are outside and even a slight breeze can interrupt the focus. That combined with the photographer’s ability to focus crisply on so many of the flowers at one time when they have such distance and depth between them (this can be difficult to do for more than two!) is worth rewarding", they said.

There were a lot of outstanding flower images submitted, so congratulations to all those that made the shortlist.

Take a look at the competitions page for more opportunities to win some fab gear.
