Shades of Diana, Goddess of the Hunt. Below is Clare Shilland's photo Merel, a beautifully natural portrait, which won the ELLE Commission. CLICK to see a BBC slide show of the top 5 photos.

And the name of the photogenic huntress? Most apt.

I note also that third prize went to Jeffrey Stockbridge's 'Tic Tac and Tootsie' a portrait of two girls very much on the other, less enjoyable, end of America's plutocracy from the fortunate Ms Slaughter.

Yes, 2 prostitutes and a fat teenager were runners up. The two I posted are gobsmacking in completely different ways.
