Welcoming Photo Contest adds more winners

Congratulations to Nikonian Hans Zitler (Hans Ztz), winner for the second week of our Welcoming Photo Contest II 2009.

Hans is currently a Silver Member from Germany, and he is a key account manager for a company which produces airbrush tools.

WC2-Week2_300.jpgHans captured his image, entitled “Welcome Sunrays” in Bavaria, Germany with his Nikon D300 set to ISO 200 and his lens aperture at f/16. Hans tells us he got the D300 in January of this year, and he prefers to shoot landscapes. Photography is just one of his many interests. Hans is a Harley Davidson owner and he collects traditional knives.
As his prize, Hans will receive a personal license code for Silver Efex Pro software by Nik Software (valued at $199.95 USD).

WC2-Week1_300.jpgOur First week winner in the latest Welcoming Photo Contest was Jim Hammond (hamjam) of California, USA. His photo was also a landscape image.
Jim tells us:
“I took it at the South Tufa location of Mono Lake, California at 0630 in the morning to capture the warm morning sunlight. Initial processing, cropping, etc., was done using Lightroom 2.3. Final processing was done in PS CS4.The image was taken using my Nikon D80 and an 18-200mm AF-S Nikkor 3.5-5.6 G ED Lens. I used a shutter speed of 1/6 @ f22 at 29mm ISO 100, with the camera on a tripod. The image was among many I took on that morning for a Digital Photo class photo assignment I'm taking at a local junior college.”

Week Three of the contest has begun.
If you register between now and May 5, no matter on which level (from Basic to Platinum), you can participate in this contest. Complete details and a guide on how to prepare your entries for our Welcoming Photo Contest II are available here.
