We have a winner for our photography competition

Our nature in Plymouth photography competition has itself a winner after a difficult afternoon of judging.

We had been inundated with a variety of photographs that showcased nature in Plymouth, with the standard of entries extremely high.

After whittling down the shortlist to four photos, it was agreed by the Photography Club that Kezia Hallen’s image (pictured above) was deserving of first prize and a £50 Love2Shop voucher. Kezia image captures the sun shining through woodland and reflecting off the river.

Winner Kezia said: “I couldn’t believe that I won, I took the image on my new phone. I just thought that it would make a nice photo and managed to capture it well, it was a nice surprise.”

Our runner-up was Ellie West-Thomas after impressing the judges with a detailed image of a pink tulip using a controlled depth of field. As runner up, Ellie received a £20 Love2Shop voucher.

With the standard being so high we would also like to give a special mention to Peter Gray and Adrian Vasnic, who despite not claiming first or second prize were very close in the running and we’d like to high commend their efforts and share their impressive work.

Jo Steel, Resident Co-ordinator said: “Our photography competitions are proving very popular with residents and the standard of our entries just keeps on getting better. I’d like to thank everyone for taking the time and effort to capture some amazing photography.

“Congratulations to Kezia for winning the competition, the judges were all in agreement that this photo should be our winner and it really is a fantastic shot. Ellie’s image was also brilliant and I know it was very close decision.”

Jo added: “This isn’t our last photography competition, we’ll be releasing details of the next one soon.”
