Monastir, Tunisia - Carl Mason
Our judge for this month, Richard Lewis ARPS commented,
"This image exudes a sense of calm appropriate to its subject, resulting in a real sense of place. It is taken from a low angle which helps assure an excellent perspective, emphasised by the feeling of openness and the interesting rhythmic pattern of the ground. It is appropriately formatted and works well in mono."
Winter Game, Antarctica
Winter Game, Antarctica - Victor Wong
Our judge for this month, Justin Cliffe ARPS commented;
"This is definitely eye-catching, for a number of reasons, principally for the surprise of seeing someone jumping into what is clearly a very cold sea. I like the bright colours of the figures in the foreground which contrast nicely with the soft shades of grey in the land beyond. The fast shutter speed freezes the motion of the man jumping into the water perfectly and the position of the 4 people in the boat keep the eye directed towards him. Excellent."

Mighty Matterhorn and Skiers at Gornergrat - Zermatt - Switzerland
This month's judge, Richard Lewis commented:
'Twenty-one entries this month with several strong contenders and some difficult choices to be made. As ever, the assessment emphasis is on that essential sense of time and place which is at the core of what makes a Travel image, together with technical and aesthetic strengths and sheer interest value.'
'A straightforward image that exudes sense of place, not only by the presence of the snow-clad mountain range surrounding the subject peak, but also by details such as the snow blowing off it and people's colourful cold-climate clothing. Composition is strong with that block of colourful sightseers giving it life, and the winding walkway leading into them, featuring the nicely positioned couple toward the foreground. The light is well suited to the image and one can almost feel the quietude to be found in Alpine spaces such as this.'
Congratulations to Martin Reece.
This month's judge, Justin Clift, commented:
A nice selection of images this month - after considerable thought and deliberation, my winner for April is Havana Cuba. What makes this photo for me is the figure of the man, in the doorway, peering out at the photographer - but I also like the smiling woman in the foreground. Both are positioned nicely in the frame and the subtle colours add to the sense of decay that one sees on the building. A worthy winner this month.
Congratulations to Jo Kearney ARPS.
