Focus On Winner

Congratulations to Chris Morris who won January's Focus On competition with a black and white slide of a fully clothed model in a pool. A commercial photographer, Chris admitted he had mis-read the brief and thought the category for January was Swimming pool shots!

Runner-up was Jane Morgan with a shot of an oceanic white-tip with pilot fish taken in the Southern Red Sea. Third place went to Alex Mustard for a natural light shot of baracudas hunting silver-sides, taken from beneath a pier.
