"December Contest - Best of 2011"

Valentino Awarded for high level skills in landscape and wildlife photography Registered since 04th Dec 2004
Wed 30-Nov-11 10:54 PM

This months theme is your Best or Favorite Landscape captured in 2011. Each year our December contest offers a chance to level the playing field by letting you enter some of your favorite captures for the calendar year giving you a chance to show off what you did these past twelve months. Remember, there might be a difference between your best capture and your favorite. Your best might be an objective selection, and your favorite might be more subjective, but either way let's see what you did in 2011

RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but ONLY ONE PICTURE/post
--Include a title in the subject line
--Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
--Previously posted images are welcome but not previous winners
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--NO excessively post processed images unless that is the theme
--No people in the composition such that the people become or compete for the main subject
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists - and may or may not be randomly removed during the month without notice. To be considered as a finalist the post must be a Landscape - see criteria here, AND also meet the monthly theme such that the theme is a standout feature - what one thinks about when looking at the picture. Image enhancement in the digital darkroom is acceptable as long as the final result looks mostly like a photo - the exception is when the theme specifically allows for digital art.

Six images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image will be added to the Landscape Winners Gallery

Good Luck
