Congrats September Contest winners

5-Digital-Art-hummingbird-SQ_120.jpgNikonians Contest Coordinator David Summers (dm1dave) has posted the results of the September contests. Congratulations to our winners!

Special congratulations go to Roberta Davidson (birdied) for excelling in two of our categories for September (Macro and Digital Artistry).

Our member driven contests are unique in many ways. Unlike most other photo contests the workings of our contests are transparent. Our members choose the monthly themes, all entries are visible to the entire community as they are posted and you are the judges not an invisible behind the scenes "expert."

Check our winning images legend below and scroll down for the names of the winners. Each photo title serves as a link, which will lead you to explanations behind some of the photographs and an overall look at the competition.

1. -- Wildlife "Garden Wildlife" theme winner Donna Knodle (dgknodle), from Michigan, USA with her image titled Common Garter Snake.

2. -- Landscape "Landscape with a single tree" theme winner Russ Glindmeier (russg)  from Arizona, USA with his image titled Meadview, Arizona.

3. --  Macro "Liquids" theme winner Roberta Davidson (birdied) from Louisiana, USA with her image titled The Dandelion Seed.

4. -- Travel "Iconic Landmarks" theme winner Henning Bossen (henbo), from  Denmark with his image titled Memorial - Reichstag reflection.

5. -- Digital Artistry "Color"  theme winner Roberta Davidson (birdied) from Louisiana, USA with her image titled Dahlia Loving Ruby.

6. -- Assignment "Environment" theme winner Mike Rheault (mikerofoto) from Ontario, Canada with his untitled image of Power Lines.

Interested in submitting your photos?

If you want to participate, please be sure to enter one of the monthly competitions listed in David Summers' contest guide.

The Online Photo Assignments category is coordinated by Rob Migliaccio (rmigliaccio) from Rhode Island, USA. You can check his recap of past winners here.

The current (November) assignment is "Abstract Body" - and this one has zero input at the current publication time. It's a tough one to visualize, so here is Rob's description:

"For a sense of what this month's assignment is, I recommend you Google "Abstract Body Photography". It is fascinating, really. The human body presents untold photographic opportunities. Whether you are photographing the entirety of the body, or a part, use your imagination to make the image interesting. Careful use of light, shadows or motion will make the image more abstract. Black and white is often used to intensify the image and make it grittier.

The goal of this assignment is not NSFW (Not Safe For Work) images, however, they may be included if they are tasteful and appropriately referenced as such in the title. This is a challenging assignment and I hope you all produce some great, wall-worthy images."
