Landscape Photographer of the Year Award

Congratulations to Emmanuel Coupe on winning first prize in the prestigious Take a view - Landscape Photographer of the Year award with Sunrise over the Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland. It's well worth going to the BBC Photo blog to see the differing opinions on the use HDR (High Dymanic Range) in many of the images.

There's a gallery of the winning images on the BBC News website that's well worth a visit. What all of these images have in common is excellent composition, combined with a good understanding of post-production techniques.

For those of you who are interested, I'm leading a Park Cameras School of Photography Capture Autumn Colour workshop this Friday, the 23rd October, where there are one or two places available and a practical landscape photography workshop on the 5th November. The Capture Autumn Colour workshop takes place at High Beeches Garden in West Sussex (near Crawley) and will be a whole day learning and perfecting the finer points of landscape, close-up/macro and panoramic photography; the landscape workshop will start in the training centre at Park Cameras and then in the afternoon we'll put into practice the skills covered in the morning.

There will be an exhibition of winning & commended entries will be at the National Theatre in London from the 5th December 2009 until January 24th 2010 and entry is free. I'm planning a trip on a date to be arranged. If anyone is interested in a day in London before Christmas, we can do a photo walk of some of the sights and take in the show.

It would also be an opportunity to do a mini-workshop on low-light and night photography as the Oxford Street and Regent Street lights will be switched on after 3rd November until the 5th January 2010.

If you'd like to take part in this day out in London, do let me know soon. There will be no charge to you, other than your costs of getting to London and food etc. I can be contacted by visiting the contact page at
