Prize-winning photograph in the 'Sea Pieces And River Scenery' category of the 'Amateur Photographer' Monthly Competition No. 42, December 1892

"'On the Wey' (W. Smallpiece, Windermere - Bronze Medal). A pleasing photograph, but one in which the light and shade is badly massed. The figure on the right of the picture should certainly not have been included, and being very light in tone, at once attracts the eye. If it be covered by the finger an improvement will at once be manifest. Watson's rapid rectilinear f/32 was employed, and two seconds' exposure was given on a bright day in August."

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