Judges Writeup




The judges were transported all over the world when trying to pick the latest winner of the Santa Vanguard competitions. The theme was 'Cityscape' and among the entries we had shots of the New York skyline, panoramas taken closer to home and interesting abstract shots of buildings.

Up for grabs this time was an award-winning Vanguard BBH-200 Series Ball Head and the lucky winner is derekhansen with his shot 'Flightpath'.

Here's what the judges said: "This shot was a real eye-catcher and there's no doubt that it was taken in the city. We really like the use of strong lines that guide your eye to the plane which seems to sit perfectly in the middle of the three structures. The different, strong shapes of the buildings, plus the reflections add an extra level of interest to a shot that really shows that sometimes, setting up in the right place at the right time can help you capture a really impressive shot! It's a clever image that has great composition making it a worthy winner of this week's prize."

Well done to derekhansen, the shortlist and thank you to everyone who entered.

Head over to the competitions page now to see what gear's up for grabs this week on ePHOTOzine.
