Harvester - 42pts, Second place
Kathy Wright, Norfolk Canon EOS 40D, 17-40mm, 1/200sec at f/8, ISO 100 Kathy, whose main occupation is farming and contracting, took her young friend to see a combine harvester in action and was captivated by the sunlight filtering through the dust storm following the combine. Shooting in raw, I added a slight blur during processing to add a dreamy, nostalgic feeling to the hot, dusty harvest-time atmosphere I was trying to convey,' she says. Judges say 'The light is stunning, and the composition impeccable. Rarely do images have so much atmosphere and transport you to a different time and place.'
