A very beautiful photograph, technically perfect, stunning colours, clever golden-hour reflections, fantastic smoothness of gradients and interesting composition of eighths. Well done Mr B, you excelled! But for us it comes down to taste and sadly there can be only one winner. We cannot help veer towards the peeling rust.
– I would like to thank everybody that entered. A sterling job all round and so many photos to deliberate over. My sincerest apologies to all those that have not been mentioned openly here but trust that every photo has been discussed in detail and many of you have been so very close. –
