Congratulations to Shona Jaray, who has placed again in the first round for 2012 of Canon Online, coming fifth with her image “Fading Light on the Hawkduns”.

The judge, Aliah Jan FPSNZ, commented:

“This place is so beautiful and the photographer seems to have captured the soul of this place with this evening shot. I love the soft feel to this image, it is relaxing to look at and yet if you choose to, there are heaps of little treasures in the image to explore if you look deeper. The lighting is perfect and the the whole image well controlled in all aspects.”

It is no mean feat to get into the top 10 for the Canon Online –  the judge also said “I could have easily selected 30 images that would be Honours images from the 115 images entered.” Well done, Shona!
