Moss - 40pts, Third place
Andrew Hipperson, London Canon EOS 40D, 100mm macro, 1/250sec at f/8, ISO 200 This shot by Andrew, 39, a product manager at a specialist computer board manufacturer, is his first competition entry. I shot this moss in my garden handheld, he says. I like to use the Canon macro ring flash (MR-14EX) even if its bright because it means I can stop down to get a little more depth of field and have a relatively safe shutter speed.' Judges say 'Wonderful colour and depth of field. If this is Andrews first competition entry, we expect hell have more success in the future.'
