Two of our six finalists for our Sony Alpha competition are in studio to discuss their photographs under the theme 'An Afternoon to Remember'.

Our judge today is Kathryn Thomas

We have had over 1,500 entries for our competition 'An Afternoon to Remember'. It was hard but we managed to narrow it down to these talented amateur photographers. Today, tomorrow and Thursday we will be meeting our six finalists.

On Friday it will be you the viewers voting for the winner.

The prize includes a trip for 2 to Cannes with accommodation at the 5 star luxury Lucienne Barriere Hotel; €1000 spending money AND Tickets to the World Photography Awards whilst you're there!

And that's not all - You also win an amazing Alpha DSLR A450 digital camera!

Judge: Kathryn Thomas - travel presenter on 'No Frontiers' who is no stranger to being on the other side of the camera. Kathryn loves to take photos and always makes sure to pack her camera on her travels.

Obviously this was a very important day in your life...
Yes, this was when my son Joshua was born on the 28th of November 2008. He is now 15 months old. He weighed 8lbs 8oz.

I was at Sea Sessions in Bundoran last summer and people started jumping off the pier as the sun was going down and I just thought it would make a lovely picture.
