Winner: MEMBERS' KNOCK-OUT COMPETITION 2011
Last puff before the bus by Derek Hunt
A winning image to get the new season underway.
We asked Derek about his 'A.I.M.s':
Derek uses a CANON Powershot SX220 which has the advantage of being pocket sized yet packing a powerful 14x optical zoom. Once again this shows that the compact camera has an important place in the photographer's armoury. While you may not want to lug around a full set of kit, the pocket camera allows for the inspired shot - the one that sneaks along when you are least expecting it.
Out for the day in Emsworth, Derek just 'saw' the shot. It looked pretty ordinary in colour but when transitioned to black and white it took on different perspective.
