‘At the Warehouse’ by Stephen Coyne

Although our third league PDI Competition was the last one of the season there was no shortage of high quality images to make judge Nick Berentzen’s CPAGB BPE2* job very difficult. In the Colour General Section it was a case of which of Stephen Coyne’s photographs would win and come second. Nick awarded Stephen’s ‘At the Warehouse’ top marks because of the atmospheric warm lighting and dramatic sky. The single figure gives it scale and cleverly connects the foreground through the wall to the main subject.
