  1. We’ve seen endless pictures of the New York skyline, to the extent that even those who have never been there can identify it in a photo without reading the caption. So, to make a shot that’s worthwhile it really has to stand out from all those that went before it, and that’s just what Eddy has done here. What a cracking picture! I love the colour of the sky and the shades of blue in the water that both work so well against the warmth of the light from the sun below the horizon and the lights of the tower blocks. I’m not always a big fan of long exposures that make water look smooth, but in this example I think the look is completely compatible with the atmosphere of the occasion and it creates a serenity on the surface of the water that contrasts nicely with the graphic shapes of the buildings and the posts sticking out of the water. It’s a great shot that obviously needed a lot of thought and care to make it look as good as it does. Well done Eddy – you are the winner.
