The Winners Of The Royal Observatory Greenwich's Annual Photography Competition Have Been Announced



https://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-45978380

The usual BBC news site search if the URL has been archived.

My personal favorite: attribution: Logan Nicholson (Australia, aged 13)-embedded image

Good going young man; that's quite a pix that you have wrought.

FYI: American photographer Brad Goldpaint won both the overall award, Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2018, and the People and Space category.

Taken in Moab, Utah, Goldpaint's Transport the Soul depicts immense red rock formations below the Milky Way on the right, and the distant Andromeda galaxy on the left.

Goldpaint beat thousands of amateur and professional photographers from around the globe to secure the £10,000 top prize.

Royal Observatory Greenwich:

The Observatory's gallery features more camera technical info than the BBC article.

This webpage states, "See over 100 images from the past 10 years of the competition in our greatest exhibition to date." with a "visit the exhibition" button, but a click on the link required a password which I presume means that you have to be a dues paying member of the Observatory (OR it may mean that it's 'off limits' for a USA visitor).
