This weeks picture of the week is another chance to enjoy Martin McGing’s image ‘Balance & Co-ordination’ which won a silver medal in the PAGB 2018 Great British Cup. Martin’s was one of just three such medal’s awarded. Martin timed his shot perfectly to freeze the movement of the ribbons and the athlete in an elegant pose. Martin demonstrates  the importance of taking control of your camera to achieve photographs like this.
