It took some serious deliberation. There were a lot of emails between us. There was even the odd expletive. Finally, however, Haje, Tom, and I have selected our five favourite photos from the Photocritic Long Exposure Competition. In no particular order I present to you the winners of Patience is a Virtue:
Set Fire to the Rain by Cybjorg
Sunrise at Botany Bay, Edisto Island by Luke Robinson
Tower Bridge traffic by Nick Jackson
Blades of Light by Paul Shears
and Cairngorm Panorama by Ian Appleton
Many congratulations to the five of you! I shall be in contact presently to enable to you claim your Triggertrap gift card prizes!
We'd also like to say thank you to everyone who entered and made our lives a little bit tricky when it came to selecting a winner. As Haje said when we first sat down to draw up a shortlist of our favourites: 'There's some serious talent there!' Please do go look at the selection in the Flickr pool: there are some inspiring images.
