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."
