I was asked by high street giants Currys &PC World to become a judge on their six week photo challenge recently. The competition encouraged everyone who entered to put their skills to the test in a series of photography challenges. It was wonderful to be asked to be a judge and to set one of the tasks which I did. I choose Composition as I feel this is a real important element to any photograph.

I’m pleased to announce here are the winners from each of the categories from the recent Currys/PC World six week photo challenge. Well done to all that entered. With so many incredible entries to choose from, it was tough picking.
This is the winning image from the challenge I set by Sean Lowe from Pembrokeshire. The image was called – ‘ArachnidWalk’ and was taken using a Nikon D90, 90mm 2.8 1:1 Macro.
“I chose this image as my winner because I thought the photographer showed a real understanding of composition within this image. Spiders by their very nature are often found once disturbed, hidden away in dark, dank places only really visible once you come across them or through the loud screams of someone seeing them all of a suddenly.
This image brings their beauty to the forefront and lets you see just how stunning up close they are at the same time placing the Spider among its natural habitat. I loved the lighting and the shaded areas which adds a great deal to the image. I love the space given to the image by placing the subject over to the right with the Spider slightly angled inward.
The image is sharp, well-composed and for me was the winner from a brilliant standard so well done to all those that entered there were several all competing in my mind for the winners spot but I went with this image, thank you.” – Craig Jones
Well done to everyone that entered the standard was very high and all the winners can be seen on Currys/PC World Blog here
