We speak to Thomas Sweetman, 2nd runner up in our Nature #Photography Competition #Chiang Mai #Thailand

I took this photo in Chiang Mai Thailand. One evening I was passing the river banks and noticed a tiny bike bridge over the Ping River that connected two small villages. It was quite a sight watching the small bikes taking the bridge so I captured this aerial which really summed up the experience of man crossing nature while the river created patterns below and the traffic crossed over.

We speak to Harry Jenkins, one of this month’s Collectors Club photographers #photography #London #londonphotofestival

My favourite medium is paint but when I had painted an abstract painting based on a photo I took of a street in London and compared it with my original photo of the scene (which I had taken because I had been able to finish sketching), it struck me that both had something to offer about the feel of that place.
The painting was my interpretation of  how I felt immersed in London. By combining my photograph and a photograph I then took of my painting it added a greater depth and the differences were highlighted and it emphasised indecision even further.
I personally really liked this image as it holds onto the feel of the painting and I was able to tweak the layering until the balance between them was most effective. It was a great moment to find out that other people had liked it too, particularly with so many great photos entered and I am so glad that I did.
I am now working on more in the series and this has motivated me to continue to explore my own City  and capture it in this dual way.
