Annemarie Farley was awarded first place for her captivating 'Lilac Rose' photograph which focused on the petals of the flower, and its unique shape and structure. The image was then softened post capture to emphasise the romantic and delicate essence of the rose.
Second place was awarded to Sarah-fiona Helme for her brilliant shot of a bumble bee clinging to an Allium flower head as it moved in the breeze. Polina Plotkinova received third prize for her captivating white studio image of a Chrysanthemum.
