‘Changing Apex’ by Carl Sumner

Judge Christine Widdall awarded Carl Sumner’s ‘Changing Apex’ 19 marks in our first print competition. She appreciated how the riders were well separated and balanced. I liked that she wasn’t concerned about the dark visors obscuring the riders eyes. There’s nothing a photographer can do about that safety feature. I think this photographs flow tells the route the riders take from entering the chicane to leaving it. You can follow their path through the picture and it tells a story.
