Seascape makes splash in photo competition

Seascape makes splash in photo competition

A photographic student’s picture of dark clouds over the Bristol Channel has been shortlisted in a national photographic competition.

Ed French, who is studying a level three BTec extendeddiploma in photography at Weston College, Somerset, captured the image last year.

He said: “I like how the sea meets the sky and is divided by the land. I altered it slightly to give it a blueish tone because I thought it enhanced it.”

Ed entered the photo into the National Historic Ships Photography Competition 2013, in the Young Photographer Historic Ship or Seascape category.

The image has been shortlisted, along with four others in its category, ahead of more than 500 other entered photographs.

The winner will be announced at a reception on board HMS Belfast, in London, on October 23.
