Martyn Ferry Oxford

Martyn makes the most of this view with his careful exposure and well-chosen toning. The exposure perfectly separates the trees from the mist without allowing the frosted grasses to burn out. It's a brilliantly atmospheric shot and captures the scene expertly

- Damien Demolder, Editor

Editor's Choice

Martyn, 34, became interested in photography while studying a course in film and TV make-up ten years ago. He bought a second-hand Praktica camera and started taking pictures of landscapes and nature. Trees are a particular favourite of his, although 'any view that combines an interesting landscape and sky is sure to have me reaching for my camera,' says Martyn.

John Lynch

West Sussex

John, 66, takes his camera with him every morning when he goes out to walk his dog. If the light is particularly promising he will take a tripod. 'I love the mistiness of the early mornings,' he says. 'It makes ordinary scenes atmospheric.' John has travelled to places such as Panama, Costa Rica and Madagascar, but he likes nothing more than strolling in the New Forest with his camera.
