Travel Image of the Month - April 2020 : Perspective of Youth

Many thanks to all our photographers who entered our monthly Travel Image competition. This month's entries showed that despite the on going 'New Normal', that our photographic colleagues from across the globe were going to ensure that was as competitive a month to judge as all previous months. 

In such trying times, especially where our genre is, to as the least, hampered by lockdown restrictions on travelling to and taking photographs of people and places away from our home bases, digging into your archives for that special shot maybe a way of reviving memories of more 'normal' times. If that's the case then please don't hesitate to enter our May 2020 competition. 

As to this month, it's always good to see the way in which people have interpreted the criteria, as well of course, to see where people have been to. But there can only be one winner and for this month our judge commented that there were ...


"Generally some good images, largely conveying a feeling for the places illustrated. For me, though, 'Perspective of Youth' was the strongest."

"I liked the perspective and also the contrast between the red sandstone in the foreground and the white limestone of the of the "Taj" in the background. The subject is well placed, with his head isolated against the sky the sky, without him the Image is nowhere near as strong. The low position of the camera emphasises the perspective and creates depth to the image.

Congratulations then to Lynda Golightly for her wonderful image. Her winning shot will be added to the Travel Image of the Month page on the website, with the overall monthly winners competing to be the Group’s best travel photograph of the year.
