Well, this was for sure the toughest week so far to judge this. I was certain I had seen the winner right at the beginning of the week but those epic shots just kept coming from Farmers up and down the UK. Adam and I spent last week in the wilds of Scotland and will be sharing our images soon. We hosted our second Advanced Elements workshop there and as part of it took the group out to shoot amongst the rivers, hills and waterfalls that make up the landscape around the Trossachs. Most of our attendees have posted epic sneak peeks from that already. Then Neil started a thread in our Facebook group asking Farmers to post a recent shot that summed up their work right now and again we saw some incredible shots. However in the end, this shot from Brideen and Deci at Photography by Brideen has scooped it.

I've seen light painting done hundreds of times but this shot just utterly nails it in every way. It's a lot harder than it looks to achieve a decent shot but this takes the creativity up a few levels and also manages to keep the couple looking intimate and focused on each other. And a nightime neon rainbow??!! Insanely good.. there was chat in the group this week about how there has never been a more creative time in the industry and every time I think the bar has been raised, I see someone with a genius eye come along and pump it up another notch or two. Well done Brideen and Deci.. our first double winner of the year and in the most competitive week. We can't wait to return to Belfast next month for a catch up. We have some really exciting news to announce later today about a special guest on this workshop so check back in with us this afternoon...
