CONGRATULATIONS to Craig McComb whose stunning photograph has been chosen as the inaugural Cumnock Chronicle Camera Club Cup winner.

Taken down at the Barony A Frame, Craig used long exposure settings, a kitchen whisk, steel wool, a 9v battery and a dog's lead to create this mesmerising image.

Craig beat off competition from more than 50 entries to win the Camera Club Cup.

Isobel Shaw and Christine Walker were unlucky to miss out on the top prize with their efforts coming in second and third place respectively.

The Chronicle team had a tough job in selecting a top 10 before Ayrshire Weekly Press photographer Charlie Gilmour chose the top three images.

Craig will collect the Cup on Friday at the Cumnock Christmas Festival in the Square.
