Many thanks to all 30 members that contributed an image for our monthly competition (December 2019). As with the November competition, the images submitted by the Travel Group community reflected a wide range of interests and differing aspects of the sub genre of travel photography, from a focus on individuals to wider contextual images. 

There were, as with last month, some stunning examples of travel photography submitted, with the selection of the winner falling to Richard Lewis ARPS, a long-standing member of the Travel Group committee. In making the decision Richard commented that

"My decision on the winner is Orchha Sunset. This was a difficult decision as several images were strong candidates to win. However Orchha Sunset came through as an interesting image that strongly conveys a sense of place as well as capturing human interest and activity. The industry of the clothes being washed contrasts with the bored look of the accompanying but detached child. Also, I liked the balance leading from the foreground, through the figure in the water, to the rather grand building in the background." 

So congratulations to IanWright ARPS for his image. This shot will go forward to our overall winners gallery. We hope to revise the competition site to include all author’s names in the near future and thank you to all that contributed, there are some very talented photographers out there.
