Furrowed field - 41pts, First place

Derek Hansen, Kent Canon 50D, 10-20mm, 1/15sec at f/22, ISO 200 Derek took this image on a cloudy February morning last year. He spotted the furrowed field near Staplehurst in Kent after driving back from a dawn shoot. ‘When I saw the furrows I knew I had to stop and take a photograph,’ says Derek. ‘I thought the lone tree would make a strong image. It was cloudy, but when the sun came out it sidelit the furrows perfectly. I took two exposures for the sky and land and blended them together in Photoshop.' Judges say, 'This is an excellently composed image. Derek has skilfully framed his shot so that the shadows and strong sidelighting make the furrows look three-dimensional. A very well deserved winner.'

      One can't help but wonder whether the farmer, upon completing his ploughing, looked back and smiled at his own work. Brilliant capture in excellent light!
