    Judges Comments:

    "With expertise and sensitivity, Tom Middleton has created a beautifully flowing piece of art that is both calming and lively. He has chosen to portray a much maligned creature and I believe makes us want to know more about Hammerhead sharks and their world."

    Gary Hodges

    "A wonderfully executed image of an unusual view of this majestic creature. The artist portrays a natural affinity with his subject and there is great movement in the piece that caught our eye. Black and white is always so effective and his use of graphite is sublime. A very worthy winner of this category."
