“Deserted Places” Photo Contest Winners

Deserted Places Photo Contest Winners

Sponsored by ON1, Bob Books, Flothemes, Skillshare, Rocky Nook and Topaz Labs.

We are very pleased to announce the top ten winners of our Deserted Places Photographic Competition. As with previous contests, we received entries from all over the world and the quality this time around was of a particularly high standard. There were many breathtaking images of graveyards and haunted houses, plus photos with star trails and the Milky Way as the backdrop, in addition to some mesmerising interior and graffiti shots.  Devotees of drone photography were also very well represented. However when awarding first prize the judges kept in mind that photography is about expression and telling a story through a picture. The winning entry by Lyn Adams finally got the vote for its concept, delivery and originality – a thought provoking image which succeeds in playing on the emotions and raising story questions. With apologies to those just missing out, the judges’ final decision on the top ten is as follows:

Gold Award – Leah’s Lament by Lyn Adams
