From the twelve winners of the Group's monthly competition Offering on Rail Street by Alistair Cowan was selected as Best of the Year 2020
The judge, Margaret Salisbury FRPS, writes:
"The twelve images which won the monthly Travel Group Competition were all excellent images, very different and were from many different Genres, included the required “Sense of Place” and all were worthy winners. Choosing the winner from the twelve was extremely difficult but the January entry taken of the woman on the Railway Line in Vietnam, was outstanding.
An emotive picture of life of these people who live on and beside this Railway line, captured so well the lady cooking with enough of the environment to showed the sense of place and told the story so well. The face and expression captured brilliantly on this lined but lovely face. Every element and detail well composed, the bonus for me was the one small area of bright colour of the flames of the fire where she would cook her food. This image really does fit the old saying “One picture is worth a thousand words”.
