Boat ride with D300 yields winning image

Congratulations to Silver member Lori McEathron (McEathron), of Suzhou Jiangsu Province, China — winner of our fourth week in the Nikonians Welcoming Photo Contest - Phase IV.

Venice_of_the_East_175.jpgLori tells us Jiangsu Province in southeast China is known as the "Venice of the East" and her winning entry bears the same title.

In her own words:
"The numerous watertowns are quaint and peaceful, promising the simple life and quiet times. I enjoy bringing foreign guests on boat rides through the canals of Zhou Zhuang, propelled by a single, polished oar gently moving back and forth in time with the mournful Chinese ballad sung by the oarsman. Priceless."

The photo was taken with her Nikon D300 and AF-S DX VR Zoom-NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED lens. Her aperture was f/7, with a 1/200th shutter speed and the camera set to ISO 200.
Lori will be receiving a Photoshop Bundle by Topaz Labs (currently valued at $149.99 USD) for her winning entry.
