Award Shortlist   

Prestigious Portsmouth

By LynneJoyce  
Starting with the iconic Spinnaker Tower, a first of a couple of series of photographs taken during trips to this wonderful city. Our first visits were simply in transit to and from Spain, then we took my stepdaughter down for a whale-watching trip and stayed for a few days to await her return - quite long enough to fall in love with the place.

Portsmouth is a photographer's delight with loads and loads of visual treats around every corner, historic, architectural and aquatic. I love the place and hope to go again and again.

Thanks for looking and I hope my images communicate my delight in the place.

A wonderful set with V1 taking my vote. A happy reminder of a visit to the city a few years back, sadly long before I owned my present camera!

An excellent set documenting the harbour area and activity going on there. Perhaps my favourite is the one of HMS Illustrious as she is facing scrap and we will never see her like again.

V2 gets my vote for sure . Used to live near there in the 80's on my boat

Super set of pictures shows Pompey at its best. years I since have been there in daylight, (we usually drop dog with parents in New Forest, then catch night boat to France, before anybody gets the wrong idea!). Need to make the effort next time I'm down there. Spinnaker at night, lit up is pretty impressive, I think you would definitely do a good job on that.

Hello Lynne, A really enjoyable group of photographs from a place that it is half a lifetime since I was there. Believe it or not I used to sail out of these waters years ago, but from Gosport. I am going to look forward to seeing your other photographs. Regards, Richard
