Winner - "Proud owner of two humans" by Lisa Guy
Proud Owner of Two Humanes

Our independent judge, Christine Havill of Freckle and Wild Photography, says of Lisa’s photo:

"I think this really portrays the barrier we've had in lockdown in seeing and being close to our families. And the togetherness it's brought of those in the same household. I love the viewpoint of looking though the garden gate as it shows they couldn't get any closer but technically the depth of field and composition is clever. It's well exposed and in focus too. It also displays how the nation still smiled and was playful throughout such a challenging time."

Christine has also chosen two runners up:

Runner up - "School of Grandma" by Charlie Lamont
School of Grandma

"In terms of the lockdown theme Charlie Lamont’s photo “School of Grandma” really evokes feeling. Anyone looking at this for years to come will know it was 2020! This is how we've spent time with family - through screens and it highlights the challenges families have had with home schooling too. I like the use of window light and it's telling that the grandma on the screen is well lit and in focus."

Runner up - "Do I really want to get wet?" by Mike Field

Do I

"Mike Field’s photo “Do I really want to get wet?” is a cracking picture and very likely taken on his daily exercise walk. The colour and composition are bang on and the sharpness of the image is exactly what it needs to be, for me technically this was the best entry."

We are very grateful to Christine Havill of Freckle and Wild for taking the time to judge and comment on the photos. Her business website can be accessed here https://freckleandwild.com/
