Best of Nikonians - 2010 Images Photo Contest update

Inferno_June_2010_78.jpgCongratulations to Preston Moochnek (massulo), winner of the June segment of our Best of Nikonians - 2010 Images Photo Contest. Preston is a Gold member from Florida, USA.

Inferno_June_175.jpgHis image is called "Inferno in the Galapagos."

Described by the judges as a timeless image that captures nature at its finest with a simple yet wonderful composition, Preston takes a modest approach, telling us it was a lucky shot: "It was a very bright sun that afternoon - Frigate birds were everywhere to be seen. This shot was taken hand held. I put the Nikon D200 in high speed mode. Closed my eyes and voilą--I got lucky...Sigma 100-300mm F4 EX DG APO HSM lens at f/5.6 with 1/1000 shutter speed and ISO set to 200."

Preston's prize for winning the June segment will be a Think Tank Photo Airport Acceleration backpack, valued at $279.00 USD.
