Winning #WilkiWeekendsAngles is Paul Wills with his picture of Mann Island in Liverpool. Such a great building to photograph, but we love the angle it's taken from and the fluffy clouds reflected in it. Well done Paul! Paul's won £10 to spend in-store and £10 to spend at wilkinson.co.uk/photo on prints, photobooks and more!

This picture is last year's Digital Splash Awards Sport Competition winner by Craig Fawkes. The composition really made this picture stand out!

We've just had the chance to have a play with the new ZEISS Batis 135mm F2.8. First thoughts... it feels great on the Sony A7 range (we can't wait to try it out on the newly announced Sony A9!). The weight (and it is suprisingly lightweight given the size of that front element), balance and general feel of the lens is great. The focus wheel is super smooth and responsive. It does take a little bit of getting used to as it doesn't have the traditional ridged finish, but that adds to the overall feel and design of this lens and we don't think it affects the handling at all.

But what about the picture quality? Well, the results speak for themselves. Super sharp, great colour rendition and just look at that lovely soft background! To put it into context, this was taken in natural light, on a grey day in Preston with a rather gloomy industrial estate in the background.... not that you'd know it! Our model? Website Manager, Tony, who was taken outside to "test" the lens... we didn't tell him which side of the lens he would be in front of!

The Batis 135mm F2.8 for Sony is available to Pre-Order now: http://www.wilkinson.co.uk/zeiss-batis-135mm-f-2-8-lens-for-sony-e-mount/

The winner of The Digital Splash Awards Portrait 2017, winning £100 in Wilki vouchers and a place in the final, is David Shandley with his picture "The Last Master Clog Maker". We asked pro photographer and trainer Mark Wood to pick a winner. He agreed with us that it was a tough competition and though some other shortlisted images may technically show a better handling of light or process, that David's image was well taken and told a story which made for a more interesting photograph. This portrait tells a story without the need for words - this can be very difficult to achieve! Well done David.

Don't forget that this month's photo comp theme is Sport - head over to digitalsplash.tv/competition to find out more.

You can join Mark Wood on his upcoming Photoshop Masterclass and Photoshop & Lightroom Workshops: http://www.wilkinson.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?cat=0&q=mark+wood+photoshop

In last #WilkiWeekends photo comp we asked you for your Speed themed images. They were inspired by the Digital Splash Awards April Sport competition, but we had lots of takes on the theme!

The winner is Phil Durkin with his picture of the Docklands Light Railway. Great colours and a brilliant viewpoint... not sure we'd want to stand that close though!

Remember, DSA Sport is now open for entries! Find out more at www.digitalsplash.tv/competition
