Handsome man helps Nikonian win Fantasea housing

Congratulations to Silver member Paul Papanek (paulpap), winner of our New Members Welcome Photo Contest – Phase VIII.

Paul is a California, USA resident who favors travel and lifestyle photography and his winning image was captured while he was on a trip to Mexico. It was taken with his Nikon D200, with an AF-S DX VR Zoom-NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED lens using an f/4.2 aperture, 38mm focal length and 1/200 second shutter speed. He used Aperture-priority AE and an ISO of 400.

I_Was_So_Handsome-275.jpgPaul's entry marks his joining as a Silver member last month (following a very brief visit to the community five years ago). The title of image says it all: "I was so handsome."

Paul tells us: "I've been shooting for Cabo Living Magazine for the past four years.
In addition to traveling to Baja to shoot for the magazine, I travel all over Mexico.
I was on a trip to Puebla when I happened upon the incredible man in this photograph.
He is incredibly handsome, but wanted to show us how much more handsome he was in his youth.
He retrieved a photograph, and I made the picture of him holding it up. It was a wonderful, touching moment."
