Army ambulance - 36pts, Second place
John Colmer, Leicestershire Nikon D200, 18-200mm, 1/125sec at f/8 John was at a Loughborough Reenactment Day looking for abstract images to take when he spotted this old Army ambulance. Normally he prefers to take abstracts in nature, but he liked the symmetry and simplicity of the red cross when framed tightly. There was an awful lot of stuff going on around the ambulance, so a wider view would have been too busy for an image, he says. Judges say 'We agree with John. The tight crop is what makes this image so striking. Very well observed.'
