Toy boat - 41pts, Third place

Chris Ould, Dorset Nikon D40X, 24-120mm, 1/160sec at f/7.1, ISO 400 Chris, a television script writer, only spotted by chance this sun-bleached toy boat, half submerged in a wheelbarrow full of rainwater. ‘After taking this initial shot I tried a few variations, but none captured my original inspiration as much as this one,’ he says. Later he adjusted the levels and saturation to add to the feel of nostalgia he associates with Kodachrome-like colours. Judges say 'Fabulous light and colour. This is a very creative and inspired image. Chris took the theme and interpreted it in a unique way.'
