Rusthall: A Picture Tells All 2014

Gary Francis, Chief Photographer of Courier Media Group has judged the photos, which are again of a very high standard and his decision is as follows:

Overall Winner

Photo Competition

My View of Denny Bottom, taken by Suzy Phillips

It was difficult to separate out the three runners up as there were so
many good images in the competition, but:

First Runner Up

Photo Competition

BBQ in Apsley Street, taken by Allan 'Jif' Peters

This shows villagers enjoying a community event in one of the “hollows”
that give this village great character. As a newspaper photographer I like
to see photographs with people in them.

Second Runner Up

Photo Competition

Cricket Pitch Pavilion, by Peter Turner

This image has a very rustic feel to it and shows what you might expect from a village cricket pavilion, such as peeling paintwork and is almost only two tones in overall colour, nicely composed.

Third Runner Up

Photo Competition

A Garden to Reflect In, taken by Elly Rutherford

I was impressed with all of Elly’s entries which are a bit different, not just of village views but using clever composition to make the viewer think about the picture. It is well composed and well framed.

Under 16s Winner

Photo Competition

View from Toad Rock, by Dean Cummins (age 15)

The high viewpoint gives a feel of what Rusthall is like, a compact community of houses nestling in a tight valley.
