It is officially British Summertime meaning Spring has finished, much like our competition. We want to thank each and every one of you for participating. We had such a fun time looking at all of your amazing photography, there’s some real talent here! But without further ado, here are the winners!
1ST PLACE – 1 WINNER OF X WIN £100 VOUCHER FOR J PARKERS
Congratulations, Diane Simpson! Your Fritillaria Crown Imperial looks absolutely stunning, the composition of the shot is impeccable. The way the water softly drops off of the petals and the bright blue sky in the background, you can even see the watering can in the shot! A very gorgeous photo that is deserving of our first place prize!
2ND PLACE – 1 WINNERS OF X WIN £75 VOUCHER FOR J PARKERS
Say hello to our second place winner, Pam Reading! Although flowers rightfully belong in the sun, it isn’t easy to find them looking their best in the dead of winter. That is why I like this picture so much, it manages to capture the beauty of winter and the fact that nature is always present. A very pretty picture, that takes second place!
3RD PLACE – 1 WINNERS OF X WIN £50 VOUCHER FOR J PARKERS
Our third place winner is, Jo Johns! I really like how close up this image is as it allows us to get up close and personal with each and every delicate petal. The addition of the butterfly just takes it up a level, showing the beauty of everything that nature has to offer!
RUNNERS UP – 7 WINNERS OF X WIN £25 VOUCHER FOR J PARKERS
A round of applause for our incredible runners up! It was so hard choosing between all of our entries so don’t think you’ve just about made the cut. All of these images were chosen for specific reasons and you should all be very proud of yourselves!
