Gail D’Almaine, the photographer, took first place in the street photography category at the annual Master Photographers Association (MPA) awards.

Judges said: “The decisive moment was captured superbly with a low camera angle and perfect timing.”

The picture was taken on the promenade in Great Yarmouth.

Ms D’Almaine said: “I spotted the walkers approaching each other and knew the animals would react. The tension was palpable... I pressed the shutter just as the animals reacted with leaps and barks.”
