Pages - 38pts, Third place
Rob Deyes, Hull Canon EOS 5D, 100mm & 25mm ext tube, 1/4sec at f/5.6 Rob had been thinking about his entry for our Close To You round, but was short on ideas. The idea finally came to him when his girlfriend was doing some course work. 'She was reading a book when the pages kept spreading out like a fan,' he recalls. 'I kept watching for a while thinking close to you! The very next day when she was at work I took the picture.' Judges say, 'Rob has created a very interesting graphic abstract with nice symmetry using a common household item. We like the tiny frame of blue at the bottom, holding it all together.'
