Liverpool Anglican Cathedral - Competition Win!

Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 30 October 2009 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

I entered this photo a few months ago into a photo competition being organised by Liverpool Cathedral and the Liverpool Daily Post & Echo newspaper.

I was invited to the prize giving ceremony on Wednesday evening which was held inside the cathedral and I was amazed and delighted when my name was read out as the first prize winner in the adult category!

I took a couple of photos of the event which you can see here or here

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

congratulations! this is a superb photo indeed - i like the light arrangement here - the path of light really sets the focus on the person - almost as if a torch was shines directly at her from behind the wall... the person also helps to see the scale of this place...

Stephen Phillips from San Francisco, United States

Inspired - Ian. The shadow and scale are powerful. The bath of light behind your subject and the fine light and detail to the arch at rear - all come together. A magnificent image. 5-Stars.
