Disappointment - 43pts, Frist place

Jan de Brauw, Devon Nikon D700, 50mm, 
1/160sec at f/2.8, ISO 250 Jan loves taking portraits and couldn't resist this shot of his daughter during a trip to the park, which was marred by rain. 'The heavens opened, so I did an about turn,' says Jan. 'The image was taken when Scarlett looked out of the window, hoping to see the playground, but was disappointed to see we were back home.' 
 Judges say, 'Jan's image tells the story of one person's experience with bad weather and illustrates perfectly the type of creative and technically superb images that we love so much. Jan's over-the-shoulder composition puts the viewer in the car with him, and his isolated focus on his daughter's hood draws your attention to her frustration.'
