Engineering Image

Ervin Hajos's photograph of the Zoology Museum in Cambridge was singled out for its intriguing multi-layered composition, but fell short of meeting the competition brief.

This photograph was taken to emphasise the contribution engineers make to reducing poverty in developing countries. Richard Franceys has taken a picture of a new toilet in a Jaipur slum in India, which has transformed the lives of local people.

Unfortunately, this story was difficult to read from the photograph.

Steve Cribbin took this photograph of a cluster of cable ducts about to be dragged across the Dutch river at Goole. The image was commended for the strong textural contrast between rusting steel chains, bright blue ropes and coarse gravel.

John Bradley's reflection of a digger being lifted against the White City shopping complex caught the attention of the judging panel. It failed to make the top three because it was felt that it was too busy. Tighter cropping round the reflected image would have made it a winner.
