Cool - I know which are my top two, but only after a fair bit of flicking between different ones as they are all really very good.

Good luck to everyone who entered!

Tammy of TammyLynn Photography

*Two hour private workshop of your choice worth £50. (Camera, photography or post processing) – From TammyLynn Photography

*Two hour studio hire at The London Road Studio in Gloucester worth £50. – From The London Road Studio

The Winners get to choose their prize! The First Place winner goes first, choosing his/her prize from the list above. The Second Place winner goes second choosing his/her prize from the remaining three prizes...and so on.

First Place goes to:

Fuzzy Reflections by Mike Broome

Comments from Judges:

Damon Cannard: This one is full of vibrancy, colour, and shows the docks and ships off at their best. It's nicely composed too.

Tamara Kwan: Lovely night time view of Gloucester Docks. Love the colour and reflections in this. If you don’t look too closely it’s like looking back through time. J

Second Place goes to:

Un-named by Chris Nash

Comments from Judges:

Damon Cannard: This one is right up there for me, I love it, the composure is spot on with the masts converging in on each other, and that graduating sky behind is stunning. This is definitely wall art.

Tamara Kwan: I really love the colours here and the detail of the silhouettes of the masts. I’d hang this on my wall.

Third Place goes to:

Un-named by GFC

Comments from judges:

Damon Cannard: This is the one that first caught my attention in the thumbnails, I think the sepia suits it, and the reflections are great. I like the ship almost silhouetted against the dock buildings.

Tamara Kwan: Another well done night time shot at the docks. Love the processing here, almost feels like you’ve gone back in time....until you look closer that is. J

Forth Place goes to:

Un-named by Liz Fraser

Comments from Judges:

Tamara Kwan: This image stood out for me for a number of reasons. The view. The detail. The textures. The Black & White processing. I love that I can’t easily spot anything modern in this photo. I love how it pulls me in and makes me want to look over the bow of the ship. It gives me a sense of adventure. I like this. J

I'll add the images to this post later

Just wanted to see if I could post it with the photos. Thought it would be nicer if people could see the images that won. The answer is no, it won't let me.

I'd like to leave some comments on the other images as I was really impressed by quite a few of them. I'll try to make time to do that in the next day or so.

Thank you to all who participated. Some truly lovely images in this thread.

This is the first photo competition that I have won, and it is very pleasing to think that the judges liked my photo and considered it worthy of being placed first, from amongst the other excellent photos that were submitted. I would like to pass on my thanks to them and also congradulations to the other winners..

Thank you very much, and congratulations to everyone else. When I saw the other photos, I thought I had no chance, but I thought it would be fun to enter anyway.

Thank you for taking the time to organise this competition too. It was a great way to showcase a very unique event for Gloucester.

I think it's my turn to choose a prize, so can I go for the printer please?

Thanks
