The Judges of the Cafe Choice Award are pleased to announce the presentation of this highly rated award:









is awarded to member



BRANNY

for his image

"CUDDY'S CRAG"









From the Judges:

"Brannyís image shows us the rugged terrain of Hadrianís Wall, a bleak landscape and an area seen by many but not in the light of a frosty morning in mid-winter.

The composition provides excellent foreground interest from the frosty grass on those stones and the contours of the wall lead us through the image from the warm sunlight on the wall into the bleakness of the misty fields and valleys in the distance. It's this change from front to back that makes the image special. The presence of two walkers in the middle distance provides the scale we need to comprehend the scene.

Congratulations, Danny!"

That is such a fab image. The people draw you in and your eye wanders along the wall into the far far distance, which has an impressionistic softness that is like a painting. The square format gives a feeling of solidity and makes a change from the norm. It's very real and in the here and now with those folks and the more modern fence lower left middle, yet it is historical and almost timeless as well. A super Choice for the front page of the Cafe, I shall enjoy seeing it there every day! Congratulations Branny Smiley

I remember seeing this one in the Gallery and almost ignoring it as being flat and boring. But, when I opened the thumbnail to full size, suddenly this picture took on a different persona and turned into the winner before my eyes.

I think it also helped that Harry took me on a photo-shoot of various locations along the wall. So it also brings back good memories.
