And the best photograph from the Capital One Cup Final is…

A few weeks ago we asked you to submit your photographs from the Capital One Cup Final. Curator of Photography Greg Hobson chose this black-and-white photograph.

The chosen photograph was taken by Glen Parry and can be viewed on Flickr.

Greg says:

This photograph caught my eye immediately, partly because it is in black and white, but mostly because it shows an aspect of the final that isn’t focused on the pitch or the crowd.

I like the way the curves are echoed in the visors on the horses and policemen and, the vast arches of the stadium in the background. Also, the policeman on the left is smiling, which lifts the picture and reminds us that it is a fun day (despite the final score).

Thank you to everyone who submitted their photographs. We had some great submissions, but unfortunately some weren’t from last month’s cup final, so we didn’t include them in the competition. You can still see Ian Beesley and Eamon McCabe’s photographs of Bradford City and fans in this blog post.
