Travel Image of the Month - March 2021 : Myanmar Commuters - Steve Jones
Our judge for this month, Richard Lewis ARPS commented,
Winner: Myanmar Commuters.
"This image has impact and captures the sense of place not just in what we see of the local environment but in what the subjects are doing - taking a regular journey by heavily laden improvised local transport with another similar vehicle ahead. Nicely composed and plenty of human interest."
Highly Commended: Mekon at Sunset - Neil Harris
"Does what it says on the tin! Well composed and exposed, a serene image that conveys sense of place and time."
Commended: Morning Duty - Victor Wong
"Again that sense of place is clear, and capturing this must have taken patience waiting for an absence of bystanders to maximise impact. Sense of time is clear from the morning light bathing in a glow the wall behind the sweeper. Taj nicely framed in the archway and a well captured image of an everyday task in process."
Commended: St. Marks Square, Venice - Jane Moore
"Very atmospheric image that conveys not only sense of place but also sense of time. A misty winter's evening emphasised by the street lights. Nicely framed and well suited to its monochrome treatment."
Commended: The Morning Commute, Fuxin, China - Ian Silvester
"A very clear and straightforward image that shows not only the commuters but also the rising steam and smoke in the distance from the locomotives and cooling towers reinforce the feeling of an industrial environment. Sense of time is apparent from the early morning light."
