Annual Digital Image Competition 2023: Portraiture  Competitions, 6 June 2023

Thanks to those who contributed to an emotive selection of images in the Portraiture category of the ‘competition’.

We were delighted that Lesley Peatfield was able to join us and we would like to thank her for her time reviewing all the images in each of the six categories and her comments on the images. Lesley selected her ‘favourite’ six images for each category and talked about what she particularly liked about them.

Here, in no particular order, are Lesley’s favourite six images for Portraiture. Lesley chose two overall favourite images in this category: ‘Jed, 6 weeks without a home’ by David Kessel and ‘Penang Man’ by Mike Fidkin.

*** Note that David’s image ‘Jed’ image was also chosen as one of two runners-up in her overall top 3 favourites from all categories. ***

To view Lesley’s favourite images at a larger magnification, please go to the gallery of all the submitted images (shown below the favourites).
