Our thanks go to everyone that entered the competition, the shortlisted photographers and the winners but especially to our sponsors, Topaz Labs who provided judging this time around as well as the fantastic prizes of course.

We’ve been having a long hard think here at the Digital Lightroom and we’ve come up with at theme for the next competition that is going to get you thinking about an aspect of compostition that can be incredibly effective, Lead in Lines. We’ll be publishing an article on this very useful compostitional technique next week.  We’ll launch the competition officially but you can start thinking about the pictures you might enter in the coming weeks. 😉
