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

NIKON D40 1/50 second F/2.8 ISO 200 75 mm (35mm equiv.)

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. It's a lovely shot; I can feel the coolness and stillness of being inside a cathedral. The highlights and vertical scale work well.

DarkElf from Perth, Australia

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.
