Much less airy-fairy pseudo-art speak, and I thought the overall standard of the contestants was higher. Nice locations, too.
Yes, as compared with series 1, it wasn't quite so awful. At least they got rid of the annoying (and pointless) 'hostess', who contributed nothing, and I actually liked some of the images taken this time, which I can't say of last series at all!

Still think we should know what makes the judges qualified to be in that slot though ... having never heard of any of them, they should put their money where their mouths are, and exhibit some of their own work as examples of what the contestants are striving for.
