"'Back from the Fishing-ground' (Mr. Frank W. Kent, Clapham - First Bronze Medal). A well-balanced picture: had there been a trifle more foreground, the effect would have been better. An Optimus rapid rectilinear lens, working at f/16, and the plate, a Paget 50 times, received one-fortieth of a second exposure."

Text from "The 'Amateur Photographer' Album of Prize Photographs, 1893"
