Sunrise over Cloud Inversion whilst ascending Sebastapol Ridge

Description: Mt Aoraki-Cook National Park/ Sebastapol Ridge metres below the Annette Plateau/ No particular route just avoiding an overhanging Cornice. Brad Cameron leading and Tom Gilbert on belay.

Judge’s Comments: It’s great to see some healthy competition in this years Youth category—this particular images holds its own amongst of the best—It’s a dynamic with beautiful warmth. The photographer has made a deliberate effort to find an angle to show the climber leading, with the perspective naturally leading the eye to the belayer. The time of day is perfect, with the sun just on the horizon, especially in such a dramatic position. Congratulations—it’s probably the strongest youth winner in recent years. If the judges were to offer any advice to the young photographer, it would be to be careful with the treatment of highlight and shadow recovery in post production. It’s often an extremely fine balance and the shadow recovery here is pushed just a little bit further than necessary. (Dean Mackenzie & Simon Waterhouse)
