"A very narrow landscape in a smoky room, showing a major cooking operation for a lot of people," says Rayner. "There are huge cauldrons, and there's a very deep umber brown, painterly quality to this. And that divided the judges: some thought it a bit too murky."
"But one of the acute details, in the right-hand corner, a chap with only one arm cooking over a brazier. He's there, and that's what he does. It's a terrific photograph."
