AditNow 2007 Photography Competition Results
All submitted photographs were of a very high standard and judging between them and deciding on winners was an exceptionally hard task.
Photographs were judged on a balance between photographic merit and relevance to the subject what we've left behind. Priority was given to above ground photographs, however one or two underground photographs have crept into the winners due to their very high standard.
Thank you to all who took the time to enter, and sorry we couldn't award a prize to everyone.
Blists Hill by Barney.
Unanimous first place went to this photograph. Perfectly composed this photograph manages to convey a feeling of time stood still at the headframe and surface buildings at Blists Hill.
Pre-Stressed Arch, Cliftworks, Box by Darkstar.
Beautifully lit, this photograph was deemed to convey the feeling of abandonment. A lone explorer stands under a pre-stressed arch, a fine example of engineering and of the pride the workers took in their construction.
Lathe, Maen Offeren Workshops by ChrisP.
The warm lighting in this photograph of an abandonned lathe at Maen Offeren is a stark contrast to a scene of industrial abadonment, the inclusion of period graffiti in the framing is a nice detail.
Each of these runners up came within a whisker of winning a prize, and are presented below in no order other than username alphabetical order.
Cables on Drum by Clunk.
This photograph, whilst simple in concept caught the eye of all the judges. The vertical strands in the cables contrast the angle of the cables themselves, combined with vivid colouring.
Botallack Mine by Mini670.
A classic view of Botallack Mine and the engine houses, we liked the composition, the lighting, depth of field and the contrast between the natural foreground and industrial scene behind.
Crane in Shadow by Nimrod.
Technically stunning, and beautifully lit, this photograph of the crane at Box, with a rock in the jaws of the crane, conveys a feeling that the workers will be back tomorrow.
Minors at Work by SteveM.
We felt this photograph was worthy of note for being very different to every other entry by combining a sense of fun with a scene of industrial heritage, or perhaps a future generation of mine explorer!
