Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts
We saw lots of photos of this stunning building, but this one nailed it. The slow shutter speed has beautifully captured the movement of the clouds, which adds a suggestion of the passing of time.
This photo has a cinematic feel; sharp lines lead you left to right like a film projection. The sign from behind is reminiscent of Back of Hollywood by Ed Ruscha, who exhibited here a few years ago.
Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft
This is an example of when a filter can work. The sepia tone brings out the traditional qualities of the subject and gives it a more tangible feel. It really captures the uniqueness of the museum.
The photographer has really made this artwork their own. The contrast between modern and historical is a nice touch. And is that Whistler's Mother? The resemblance is uncanny...
Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Some photos just hit the mark and need no explanation. This lovely observation is certainly one of them. Where would you find a sheep standing on a masterpiece? Only at YSP.
The Mary Rose Museum
A witty observation. 'Man of the main deck' juxtaposed with the little old lady made the judges chuckle. It's also nice that it captures a small corner of the museum.
