And the Winner is…

The second DLR photo competition prompted a huge response.  The standard was very high and it was difficult to come up with just 10 pictures for the shortlist but we did and it was then down to you.  As soon as the polls were open, votes started pouring in.  Hundreds of people chose to vote and we’re very grateful to you all.

The Winner of the Digital Lightroom Movement and Motion Competition is..

Steaming Round the Bend by Helen Cherry

We’d like to say a big thank you to all those who entered the competition and a special thank you to those whose pictures made the shortlist.  This was a very difficult competition to judge and the voting reflected that.  Click on any of the pictures below to enjoy the runners-up slide show that includes links the photographer’s blogs.  They are well worth a visit!

We are just finalising the details of the next competition which will now be launching tomorrow.  I can tell you that the theme is going to be ‘Still Life’.

    My top choice glad you agreed – keep watching

  13. This was my favourite too, congratulations to Helen for a wonderful win. All of the photos were superb, so well done to everyone else, too (especially David for his lock gate, which was my second favourite).

  14. A note to them who manage the site; not all the shortlisted photos have their sites linked (you can still go to the individual sites by copying the text and using Google).

    That said, it had an enjoyable time exploring the works of the people shortlisted. I might not agree with the rankings, but not because of a lack of quality in the photographs featured above.

    Having looked at all the associated sites, I am amazed at the other works by the contributors. Congratulations to all; winners especially, but also to everyone involved.

  15. Congratulations all winners. Especially I want to talk about the first one, it really takes me with her… amazing shot. Thank you, love, nia

  16. Congratulation to …. Helen and two runner ups – some amazing photos have been entered – but I understand why Helen’s won. Stunning.

  17. Congratulations to the winners and everyone in top 10! All great pictures!! 🙂

  18. Congratulation to all!! Great shots!
