Who won our May 'travel' photo comp?
Huge congratulations to Chris Staring, winner of the May ‘Travel’ competition with his fantastically composed image ‘Hang En Cave’.
This month's guest judge, photographer-extraordinaire Anthony McKee, chose Chris’s image as the overall winner:
Despite a good range of entries, this image stood out for both its impact and the great handling of tones. This image is surreal, and at first glance you wonder what kind of cloud is hanging in the sky; but then you realise this image was made in a cave in some sort of subterranean moonscape, complete with its own bar and camping ground. There is a lot of narrative in this image that I am sure would inspire many travellers to seek out this location, but what brings it all together is some good post-production. Well done Chris!
