Cladding on bridge, Royal Victoria Dock - Gerard Sexton, Oxfordshire 49pts

Gerard Sexton, Oxfordshire 49pts Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 70-200mm, 1/1000sec at f/11, ISO 500 As already mentioned, it’s important to try to find a unique take when photographing architecture. Here Gerard has taken the abstract approach and created an absorbing image of the aluminium cladding around a stairwell on a bridge spanning the Royal Victoria Dock in East London. It’s the contrast of tones that makes this shot fantastic. Add to that the near-fractal nature of the structure and you have a picture that demands repeated viewing. With all this in mind, we decided it had to take second place.
