Chris Packham, the wildlife expert and RSPCA vice president and television personality, guided a judging panel if industry pros and arranged the award ceremony on Thursday at the Tower of London on 19th December.
He told that Danielle was a deserved winner; her snap is both technically strong and captivating. She also used some sophisticated techniques and shows a real understanding of how to make photography work. For Chris, what stands out is the use of the simple element of water to enhance the portrait of the heron. The droplets transform the picture of the bird into something else entirely – it is verging on magical. He added that this was just Danielle’s snap that took her breath away though. There were several snaps that showed an imagination and real skill.
She won Olympus cameras and a weekend photography break thanks to Natures Images worth up to £500.
