Bas Montgomery, EPSA of Ennerdale, Cleator, Cumbria wins this time with one of his delightful Star Mono still-lifes, Violin and Vase.
The judge, Mark Fohl, APSA said “Well, this one takes the cake. Classic still life. Violin, bow, cloth, vase (that’s vahz!), and flower. I think the dark flower is the best part of the shot. Its detail and placement are terrific. Very minor suggestion is to slightly tone down the hot spot on the cloth by the end of the bow."
