Mastering the Nikon D600 Chapter Images Selected

Baby-Dog_THU.jpgNikonians author Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell), reports his newest book, Mastering the Nikon D600 is on schedule for release next month.
The final step in the process was selecting Nikon D600 photos submitted by Nikonians members to be used as full page Chapter Opening Images.

Darrell has been in touch with those selected members and posted his gratitude to everyone in the original post who offered to be of assistance:

"Thank each of you very much for making a submission. I wish the book had more chapters so that we could add a lot more images. However, it only has 13 chapters (about 560 pages). All of your submissions were excellent and appealing."

Below are thumbnail versions of the 13 Chapter Opening Images to be used in the book.
The yellow numbers do not appear in the final version. They are a guide for the credits listing below the images (and also indicate which chapters they help illustrate).


1 - Isabell and Her New Toys - Jesse Martinez (jesse101) / USA, California

2 - Bountiful Harvest - Marcel Carey (mcpianoca) / Canada, Quebec

3 - Rendezvous - Philip Rice (pjr) / Canada, Ontario

4 - Mesquite Flat Dunes in Death Valley - Eric Bowles (ericbowles) / USA, Georgia

5 - Twenty-seven Cents Per Gallon - Jim Hammond (hamjam) / USA, California

6 - Spirit of Texas in Semi Finals - Donald Heldoorn (TakeTwo) / USA,California

7 - Nature's Beauty - Jackie Donaldson (bhpr) / USA, Maryland

8 - Baby Big Bear - Anthony Do (gudnuf4u) / USA, California

9 - Mandarin Duck on Golden Pond - Mike Goodman (mrginhop) / USA, New Hampshire

10 - Taking Prey - Rocky Fletcher (rf10956) / USA, Iowa

11 - Iguana Invasion - Susan Braunhut (wife of dhmiller) / USA, Massachusetts

12 - Bald River Falls - Brenda Young (DigitalBrenda) / USA, Tennessee

13 - Lyndia's Beautiful Smile - Jesse Martinez (jesse101) / USA/Colorado

You may notice one member takes the distinction of leading the first and last chapter, and two members submitted shots taken by their wives. Counting those two ladies and the submission from Jackie Donaldson, we have three images credited to women, ten by men.

"My new book will make your zoom lens longer, your wide angle wider, your macro even closer up, and your megapixels multiply."
