First place: ‘In the Eye of the Beholder’ by Matthew Hoser. Matthew says: “The cupola of Florence’s Duomo, reflected in the eye of a traveller.” Our judge says: “I love the creative and unique composition of this image. Even though the eye fills the frame, the focus is the beautiful building in the reflection.”

Second place 'night glow balloons' by Raymond Watson. Raymond says: "This was taken at Strathaven balloon festival." Our judge says: "The contrast between light and dark brings this photo to life and I really like that you get the scale of these enormous hot air balloons."

Third place: 'Holiday Love' by Mahala Harvey. Mahala says: "This is my son on holiday in Northern Ireland, my husband's birthplace. He's just so happy and asked if we could live here." Our judge says: "When choosing the winners I kept coming back to this one. It really stands out to me because of the emotion it captures! This chap is so happy to be on holiday with his family. I love that and really get it from this picture."
