“Art installation by Felice Varini on the medieval walls of Carcassonne, France. At sunset there was a crowd of people where the concentric circles aligned. I was intrigued by this lady sending a hand-written message on a pink Post-it note”. (Photo by Katy Bridgestock/The Guardian)

Runner-up. “Autumn is a cold season, but when I see how colourful leaves sparkle in the sunlight, as in this scene in Chatsworth Garden, Derbyshire, I feel warm inside and happy”. MICK RYAN, JUDGE: “As it is peak autumn a beech photograph is a must, and this is a classic. The strong lead in of the carriageway culminating in two strong focal points of the people and the fountain, all framed by the repeating lines of the beech trees. Wonderful”.

Runner-up. “Taken on the Kennet and Avon canal at Semington, Wiltshire, the sunrise was spectacular as I stepped out of the boat. I travel and live on this canal but this scene really took my breath away”. MICK RYAN, JUDGE: “Nothing can be beat a sunrise walk down a canal with mist rising off the water, and dew heavy on the foliage – as this well-taken photograph demonstrates”. (Photo by Tiffany Gorman/The Guardian)


Winner. “I took this vertical image in the Quarry Bay district of Hong Kong during the dusk ‘blue hour’, when there was a perfect balance between the ambient light in the sky and the artificial lights of the high-rise residential buildings”. MICK RYAN, JUDGE: “Quarry Bay is a rich area for great shots and this is a particularly striking image of these old apartments, a unique perspective that was wisely taken as the light fades and the apartment lights come on”.
