Thank you to everyone that took part in the Inspired by Colour photo competition last month. We are pleased to reveal that our December winner is James Abbott with his ‘Frozen In Time’ themed image, ‘Autumn Swirl’.
James is now the proud owner of a BenQ SW2700PT colour critical monitor. James commented:
“This image was a six second exposure, taken on my tripod mounted Nikon D610 and 16-35mm lens, of a slow moving swirl pool in the stream running through the gorge (Padley Gorge in the Peak District). I was drawn to the leaves on the rock protruding from the surrounding water, and even though the water was moving slowly the image itself instantly revealed itself. So with nothing more than a polarising filter on the lens I set about capturing the image I had in mind.
Back home I processed the raw file in Lightroom before cloning out another rock in the top right corner of the image in Photoshop. I calibrated my monitor to ensure the colours I see during processing are correct.”
James is a Freelance Photographer and Journalist based near Cambridge, UK and specialises in portrait and landscape photography. From staying up all night to shoot the 24 Hours of Le Mans, to high-end beauty photography to creative still life and everything between, if you can think of a subject he’s probably photographed it.
