the Justin Gordon trophy - "time and Tide - the passage of time"

Doug Cox won the Justin Gordon for the fourth year in a row.  Not only that but all four of his entries were short-listed into the final round.  Great compositions, high technical standards and superb presentation of each image that could not be faulted. 

Tony Bennett came a close second.

Some of the interpretations of the set subject were more tide than time (!), but an excellent competition with 50 entries.
