Self portrait - 41pts - First place
Kelsey Walsh , Tasmania, Australia Nikon D700, 85mm, 1/1000sec at f/3.2, ISO 2000 I took this self-portrait while shooting at a local nature reserve. It was freezing cold and I got covered in mud, but it was worth it in the end. The image was taken just after sunset. The light was very soft and it was getting dark, so I set up the camera in a rush, shot about 20 jumps using a remote, then stumbled back to the car in the dark. Judges say, 'Kelseys fantastic image captures a wonderful sense of freedom. We were impressed by his original take on the self-portrait genre. A brilliant shot.'
