Speaking of the winning image, which was selected by the WDC team, Deputy Editor, Mat Gallagher commented 'This was an incredibly difficult competition to judge, and the standard of entries was extraordinarily high. Cooper's image stood out from the crowd, owing to its indisputable demonstration of the 'power of light' and its standalone merit as a fantastic photograph.'

As winner of the competition, Bill Cooper scoops a new Nikon D300s. Also included in the prize package is an 18-55mm lens and a Nikon Training voucher† When asked about his image, Cooper said "Tate Modern's Turbine Hall has full height windows on the West wall which are often shuttered. I was on the viewing balcony in late May just as the Museum was closing and it was thrilling to capture the powerful, contre-jour light streaming through the windows. I was on a high for days!".

To see all the images entered in to the competition, visit the Power of Light gallery. If you fancy the chance of winning some camera gear yourself, why not enter either of the WDC competition currently online. Simply visit the WeAdmire or Ricoh CX3 competitions for more information.
