Congratulations Best of 2014 Winners

Best-of-2014_SQ_100.jpgThe winners of the Best of Nikonians 2014 Images Annual Photo Contest have been announced. Nikonians founder J. Ram?n Palacios (jrp) tells us this year's contest combined excellent images carefully reviewed by a dedicated judging team:

"The quality of the submissions is superb, making us very proud of the level of photographic accomplishment of our participating membership.

Judges were drawn from the Nikonians Masters Society to grade the finalist images.
Criteria used for scoring were Color/Tone (tone for B&W images), Composition, Technical Execution/Merit, Story Line, and Artistry/Expression.

It was tight!

Our deepest appreciation and thanks to the judges for a well done tough job, and to our Contest Director Dave Summers (dm1dave).

On behalf of my partner Bo and myself, our congratulations and thanks to all participants.
Looking forward to enjoy your images for 2015.
