Charlotte Coppenhall, winner – An icy walk along the Great Wall of China during a snowstorm. As the snow clouds parted, I was able to see the history before me. MICK RYAN, JUDGE: A photograph doesn’t have to be technically perfect to be brilliant — sometimes a less than perfect focus, water on the lens or spots on the sensor don’t detract from the overall impression. When the opportunity arises you have to rely on your instincts, especially in moody weather. The snow-shrouded trees by the receding wall frame the subject walking down the steps perfectly.

Steven Clennell – A trip to Eastbourne to photograph the stars was kiboshed by fog. The following day, however, it provided a phenomenal atmosphere at the cliff’s edge. Overlooking Beachy Head, gusts of wind created clearances allowing the cliff and lighthouse to loom forth.
