Small Photo gets the big prize in current new member contest

Congratulations to Steve Harrington (sevenball), of Ontario, Canada for winning the first week of our New Members Welcoming Photo Contest Phase IV with a soft-focus macro shot of flower petals.

Steve was shooting with his Nikon D40 and AF-S DX VR Zoom-NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED lens (with a #4 close-up filter attached). The camera was set to ISO 200 and he used the full 200mm of his lens at aperture f/5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/500th sec.
Steve will be receiving a Photoshop Bundle by Topaz Labs (currently valued at $149.99 USD) for his winning entry, entitled A Petal World.

Our contest continues and a new winner will be announced once every week for the next three weeks.

Topaz Labs, makers of popular Photoshop Plug-Ins such as Adjust, Vivacity and DeJPEG are currently offering a very generous 25% discount for all contributing Nikonians at the Silver, Gold and Platinum levels. Check your Nikonians Rewards Page for details.

If you are a new member you too can win!

If you registered between August 30th and September 26th, no matter at which level (from Basic to Platinum), you can participate in this contest.
Each week we will select a winner.
The week two judging concludes this weekend and the announcement will be made after Sepember 14.
The last one in this series will be announced on September 28, 2009.
