Jakub Kozioł Image title: Riomaggiore What camera, lens and settings did you use to capture this stunning shot? Nikon D750, Nikkor 16-35mm VR, f13, ISO 100. How did you decide on the composition? I decided to make a panorama because I wanted to present a wide view of this beautiful place. A single shot would not give the effect that I dreamed up in my mind. What do you like most about the image? I like this photo the most for the Italian climate of the town, unparalleled elsewhere, and an interesting foreground complemented by rocks and boats. Did you do much post-processing? The biggest processing challenge was the removal of a very large number of tourists. It was difficult to make a two-minute exposure with such a concentration of people. Victor Sinden Image title: Mary Cecil “This was taken in my…

the best of creative portraits

In our most recent competition in association with Photocrowd we challenged you to submit your best images of creative portraits, and after sifting through over 1,000 impressive photos, the winners have been selected. Both crowd-voted and expert winners will win a licence to Affinity Photo professional editing software. Congratulations to all of the winners – as usual the standard of submitted images was high and selecting the stand-out shots was very difficult. 1 PLACE WINNER Evoluzione Photographer: Senza Spazio Our comment: The danger with creative portraits is that, in a bid to achieve something artistic and quirky, the equal goal of portraiture can get somewhat lost. Not so here. This is a portrait first and foremost, but with a wonderfully creative element. Elegantly done. 2 PLACE UV Photographer: Corentin Hais Our comment: This is a truly intriguing image,…

story behind the still

Photographer: Ceri Jones Website: Location: Hardwick Estate near Woodcote, Oxfordshire Type of commission: Personal work Shot details: Canon EOS 30D, 46mm, 1/30sec, f11, ISO 100 About the shot: The best images are those that capture scenes in a way we don’t often see every day. Ephemeral lighting conditions and rapidly progressing weather phenomena can produce stunning results when they combine. Ceri Jones used an early start to his advantage, in order to capture this location in a manner most people would miss. “The image was taken on a misty, cold December morning, with the sun just beginning to rise. In winter months I am always waiting for these weather conditions where sunlight and mist can make the most ordinary of scenes spectacular. It is an effort to get out of bed on the cold…
