This week’s Picture of the Week is Stephen Coyne’s ‘Black Kite in Flight’ which won our first PDI Nature Competition. Judge Cy Newton admired Stephen’s composition, background and the birds sharpness. Capturing a bird in flight is a tricky skill to master and Stephen has demonstrated he’s achieved it aptly.
