I’d like to thank the judges for putting together the shortlisted images and also congratulate the other shortlisted photographers for some truly spectacular images.
For those interested in the equipment used, both images were shot using a Panasonic Lumix G9. The running child was shot using a Leica DG 50-200mm f2.8-4.0 lens and the portrait was shot using a Leica DG 25mm Summilux. Both images were shot in raw and processed in Adobe Lightroom, with the final black and white treatment being completed using Alienskin Exposure X3.
The photograph was commended in the Urban View section and is the second time the competition has kindly awarded my work. The image will be printed in the forthcoming book and will be part of the digital display at the exhibition. Many congratulations to the winning photographers and judges.

To celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force, I’ve put together a special priced print offer on one of my photographs.
The image is of a RAF Hawker Hurricane in Battle of Britain 1940 colours, during a 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain air display at the Biggin Hill Air Fair in 2010.
The sight of the fighter plane flying by rays of light as they create a break in the clouds brings special symbolism to the image, the plane and mostly to the heroism of the RAF during the Battle of Britain and WWII.
