Very happy to share that one of my images has been commended by the judges in this year’s Landscape Photographer Of The Year Competition.

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.

The photograph was shot using a Panasonic Lumix G9 with a Leica DG 12-60mm f2.8-4.0 lens. The raw photograph was then processed in Adobe Lightroom CC Classic and the monochrome treatment finalised in Alienskin Exposure X3.

The beauty that is the English countryside.

Most landscape photographers would probably cringe at shooting at anything but f8 or even smaller apertures. I spotted this scene from a dual carriageway and thankfully there was a side road which let me come off and explore it. I wanted to convey it in a softer, almost painterly manor and so shot the entire set on my Leica M9 using the 50mm f0.95 Noctilux wide open. As there was too much light, I had to use a B&W ND filter to allow me to shoot at f0.95.

These images are available on my Photoshelter site in the Places section.
