NPOY_Oct-Win_78.jpg
Congratulations to Nikonians Gold Member Voltaire Malazarte (Alaz), of New York, USA, winner of the Best of Nikonians - 2009 Images Photo Contest October segment with his image "Children of lesser God."

NPOY_Oct-Win_350.jpg Voltaire's photo is a Black and White conversion of street children jockeying for better positions at the famous Magellan's Cross historical site, in Cebu, Philippines.

He used his Nikon D700 and AF-S Zoom-NIKKOR 28-70mm f/2.8D IF-ED lens at 52mm. The exposure was 1/60 sec at f/8, using ISO 200. The Black and White conversion was made using Adobe Creative Suite 4 and Silver Efex Pro from Nik Software.

Voltaire's prize for making it into the semi-finals is a StreetWalker camera backpack from Think Tank Photo.
