Judges Writeup





We had many good entries for this competition with the theme Shadow and Light. Many got mixed up with shadows and silhouettes, but some of those silhouettes had great light so they passed through to the shortlist. The shortlists started out quite large, and was then weeded down with the weaker versions of similar shots being removed.

Then it was down to the task ahead - the difficult choice of picking a winner.

After much deliberation we finally chose Clare Martin's "Shadow Play" - a beautiful European feeling fashion shot. The girl, caught mid air, in an emotional pose, leaves her shadow trailing behind in the sand. It's a gorgeous timeless shot that's balanced well, and has rich monochrome tonal range.

Well done to all those who were shortlisted. The number of entries was high and the standard very good so it's an achievement to get picked. Good luck with the next one.
