George Robertson wins the April 2024 round of N Photo’s Photographer of the Year Competition

This competition encompasses the search for the World’s Best Nikon Photographer of 2024. George’s winning image was Girl In The Window. The judges commented that the image was bursting with character. “The little girl is looking out of the window of a tram. We like how the condensation and raindrops are used to funnel the viewer towards her eyes, as well as the fun and very natural pose of her clutching her teddy. The soft light prevents harsh shadows across the face, too. Overall, this a charming portrait”.

This picture and further details of the competition can be found in the April 2024 edition of Nikon’s N Photo magazine Page 76.
