We chatted to photography enthusiast Ali about her love of the lens, her winning photograph and how she enjoyed her prize.
Since forever! I am always dredging up photographs I took of school friends and work friends to put on Facebook. I often took my camera into school!
So much information but invaluable tips on lighting and composition.
The picture was really spur of the moment: the heavens opened and my daughter ran outside, as she loves the rain. I grabbed my camera and snapped! I’m just starting out in photography and want to make more of it, so this has been a great opportunity.
We're going to the London Eye later to spot all the landmarks, and then hopefully on to Covent Garden for some good food and a wander around!
Absolutely thrilled, I've had spotters out all over London!
