Zoe’s image displayed the key techniques and aims of landscape photography – presenting the grandeur of a scene and nature at its finest. Zoe’s unobstructed view puts the viewer in her shoes and at the front, face to face with this stunning scene and representation. The inclusion of the jetty is a fantastic touch to lead and invite the viewer out onto the water.
The image holds depth, detail, and structured composition and captures interest and attention with the fabulous array of colour tones, lighting and reflections. It evokes calmness and tranquility, and is proof that seeking different angles and searching alternative viewpoints works effectively. A classic, timeless, stunning, piece of photography.

Comment from the iPhotography Team:
There are so many interesting elements within this scene and they all work perfectly together. The contrasting textures from the clouds, to the ripples and reflections within the water, all add to this beautifully composed scene. Congratulations Zoe!

Comment from Zoe:
I would just like to say, thank you to the tutors and students for their support and comments; I was so pleased and surprised to be given this chance. I’m very pleased with what I have learnt on the course so far, it has helped a great deal with my photography and can’t wait to build on this with the award I have won. Thank you.
