Judges Writeup




We had lots of entries for this competition, and the standard was so high that it was almost impossible for the judges over at Epson to pick our two winners!

After much deliberation, the judges chose shots from ruurd and Coleslaw as the joint winners.

The judges over at Epson were impressed by the shapes and tones used in Coleslaw's shot, 'Nanven': "A mixture of contrasting shapes and colours worked together to create a visually stunning image.  The gentle curves of the rocks, dramatic angles of the boulders against a straight horizon were intriguing. The graduation of colours from the grey foreground, to the warm golden tones of the boulders and bright blue of the sea were quite beautiful." They said.

They thought that the clarity and colours of ruurd's image, 'butterfly' made it stand out from the rest: "This image captures every detail of the butterfly’s wing right down to the individual water droplets. The vivid colours of the stem and bright design really bring the whole image to life.  The contrast of the colours against the background provides dramatic impact. Simply breathtaking."

Congratulations to both of our winners, you've both won an Epson Expression XP-605 printer!

Thanks to all those that entered, and we look forward to seeing your photos in our next competition.
