  • Winner: 'Fence Walk'

    Photographer: Richard Hammerton

    Time Out's judges said: 'The composition, depth of field and focus point of the image makes for a very strong shot. This combined with the sunshine caught at just the right time of day, makes it a great photograph!'

    Winner: 'Fence Walk'
  • Runner up: 'Bessie'

    Photographer: Ferenc Horvath

    Time Out's judges said: 'The narrow depth of field works well to highlight the dog’s dreamy eyes - we also liked the colour coordination.'

  • Runner up: 'Swans'

    Photographer: John Hodgkiss

    Time Out's judges said: 'We liked that the photographer took a different approach, showing the swans in passing, whilst focusing on the Little Venice location and lighting, which makes for an overall more interesting effect.'

Really nice pics. Why did you have to spoil it by calling them 'critters'. This is London not Alabama.
