Current Contests Updated

spt8-110.JPG All of our contest themes have been updated for September.

The Best of Nikonians Segment 3 is quickly coming to a close. Participation has been quit slow, only 14 entries as of this post. The theme is pretty easy and broad ranging, we are looking for photographs depicting the wonders of nature. Mountains, canyons, waterfalls, storms, etc., all of the wonderous sights of the natural world. Let's see your best work!

Rob has extended this month's Online Assignment, you have until the end of October shoot some images of your fall road trips and vacations. So, if you are traveling this month or next, submit your best images documenting your experience. You don't need to travel to a foreign country to qualify for this assignment. But the images must be from a travel experience.

This months Wildlife Contest has us stepping back, allowing us to take in and document wildlife in their environment. Step back, use a shorter lens, lets see where the wildlife roams.

This month's Landscape Contest has us closing in a bit to create intimate landscapes. An intimate landscape might be of a grand view or a smaller part of a grand landscape. It might also be a small composition that focuses on shapes, lines, colors, textures or patterns. It has to put a frame around a small part of the world around us.

The Macro & Close-up contest is quite challenging this month. The theme is Time, this theme can be interpreted in many ways from simple images of time pieces to imaginative compositions suggesting the passage of time, stopped time, or time that is accelerated or slowed.

This month's Digital Artistry Contest features a technique rather than a theme. The challenge is to use your processing skills to marry elements from two or more images to create a new composite image.
