"When I first saw this shot, it just blew me away. I've been to this area of New Zealand, but have never seen the lupins that grow there look so stunning.
"The way the soft light picks up the best of all the colours in this landscape makes it a very worthy winner. You just want to be there."
The above is a quote about the winning photograph. There is a reason she has never seen the lupins looking so stunning. It's probably because they don't. I have no objection to photos being tweaked in the name of art but when it's a photography competition then I don't think they should be, it's supposed to be about skill with a camera, not a computer.
