The Judge's Comments on Susan's photograph

Many generations of children have played in Manning’s Pit, and this dreamy thoughtful image immediately struck me as a great reference to the many hours spend there by generations. I like the swing in the background and the bright glistening water and especially the thoughtful child. Technically, it is a well composed image with the main subject off centre well exposed and responsible for a single point of bold colour against the diffuse background.

Entries were displayed in Pilton Hall during Pilton Festival as part of the Manning’s Pit Environmental Exhibition, and the winners announced on
Green Man Day
