The Best of Nikonians - Segment Three - Open Now
This segment's theme is "Symmetry".
What is symmetry? It is "an exact matching of form and arrangement of parts on opposite sides of a boundary, such as a plane or line, or around a central point or axis." This sounds like a simple theme, but the task of creating an artistic photo of a subject that reflects symmetry can be challenging.
Let's see some creative photography, strive to be different; let your artistic juices flow, and show us your best work.
There are no restrictions other than the image must be an artistic image of a symmetrical subject.
This is the third of four themed segments of The Best of Nikonians 2019 Contest. This segment will be open to entries from August 1 - September 15.
Click here to enter.
The winner will be announced at the end of September. The winner will be recognized in our blog and newsletter, they will receive a printable Certificate of Photographic Achievement.
In addition to our overall winner, the four images will be recognized as Honorable Mention and advanced to compete as finalists in The Best of Nikonians 2019 Contest. All five images will automatically be uploaded to the Best of Nikonians 2019 Gallery.
