Having just viewed the winning image for this year's LPOTY, I'm left wondering if, after more than nearly 60 years of trying to capture decent landscape images, I'm left wondering if I haven't completely lost the plot? I know that all genres of photography can be controversial, but to me a great landscape photo should at least be one that can stand the test of hanging from your living room wall, giving you, your family and friends endless pleasure. I fully accept that we are all entitled to different tastes and interests, but I do feel that when £10,000 is awarded for this year's image of Wittering Sands, the judges are now going down the same pretentious road as those selecting images for Tate Modern etc. I know that there will be a hardcore of readers who will disagree with me, but if I'd taken that image I would have almost certainly deleted it before the card left the camera. I suppose that having an attitude like this goes a long way to explaining why I've never won LPOTY.
