Judges Writeup




It's time to announce the winner of the Vanguard prize bundle we had up for grabs in the January 'Winter' competition. 

Judges at Vanguard have been deliberating the winner all weekend and from the very high standard of shortlisted entries, they found it very difficult to choose just one image to win the prize. 

After a lot of thought though, garymcparland's image 'Winter By The Lake' was chosen. Congratulations Gary! Here's what the judges at Vanguard thought of the image:

"This was a really tough decision as the standard was absolutely exceptional! We chose Winter by the Lake because the colours and composition are just stunning; the eye is drawn down from the muted sun tones to the crystal reflections of the mountains through the creamy smooth lake waters to the contrasting sharpness of the ice creating an ethereal and  fairy tale quality to the image."

Well done to all our runners up, too.

This month, we have Nikon 100th anniversary souvenirs up for grabs in the 'Weather' competition

Good Luck!
