It is (f)all in the colors - Go for Gold!
Many things have happened in the Nikonians community in the last months. Now the summer is over and we are again working more indoors, having the chance to post-process the images we have captured. Today we have a wrap-up of several articles we have written in the hope they'll help you in your photography, plus a voucher on a Gold membership.
Some of us are still outdoors though shooting great landscapes in beautiful autumn colors, such as Reed George (rgeorge911) who met up with other members on the ANPAT19 fall edition and wrote about it.
To celebrate the last days of autumn and Halloween, we have a special membership campaign for you: From now until November 1st, 2019 you'll save a third ($25 USD) on a Gold Membership using the voucher "GoldenHall19" on the upgrade page
As a Gold Member you have access to our premium articles, you can participate in our contests, get your own portfolio, access the Premium Critique forum with NEF upload, your own Nikonians email address plus more, such as your custom made photographer's ID.
I am wishing you a very good rest of the week, and... may the colors be with you.
