"December Contest - Best or Favorite of 2013"
Fri 06-Dec-13 10:52 PM by dm1dave

Lowden, US
          

The theme of this month's contest is Best or Favorite Wildlife Images of 2013. As usual we dedicate the December contest theme to help equalize any handicaps one might have had for competing in previous contest themes. This one is about showing off your Best or Favorite wildlife images of the year. A favorite may not necessarily be your best work, but a favorite capture, is by definition special, so this your chance to show it off to your fellow Nikonians.

Captive animals ok, but avoid man made subjects in the images.

Participating in our monthly contests can help us to become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work each month.

These monthly contests are the preliminary rounds for the Annual Best of Nikonians contest where you have the opportunity to win attractive prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.

The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the theme, and creativity just to name a few.

The winning image will be added to the Wildlife Contest Winners Gallery. The winner will be recognized in our weekly newsletter and will receive a printable Certificate of Photographic Achievement.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!

RULES:
-- Post up to 5 images but only one image per post
-- This is a contest – Please present your best, portfolio quality, work
-- Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
-- Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners.
-- When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
-- Include a title in the subject line
-- 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
-- WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice.

Two of my top shots of the year!

Taking in Key Largo Florida in spring of this year.
I almost missed it as the bird came in from behind me and didn't see it until it passed the beak on my cap.

Taking at Flamingo Florida. To me the looks of dominance of the osprey and disrepair on the fish make this one of my favorites.

One of my latest favorites as it was the first day afield with my newly acquired D800. The buck is covered in burrs from a recent rutting battle in a dense thicket and also sports blood on his main beams from his unlucky opponent!

D800, Nikkor 200-400 @ 400, f6.3, SS 1/160,ISO 800, -1EV, 1.2 crop mode, monopod from blind.

In response to Reply # 0
Tue 03-Dec-13 12:51 PM by Lunastar

Mankato, US
          

Pair of handsome whitetail bucks sparring on a frozen, red willow studded river island. I like this particular shot because this was the only action I witnessed on a long sit in a makeshift blind in -10F weather. The low January sun still made nice light for this late morning image.

D300, Nikkor 300/4 @ F7.1, SS 1/1000, ISO 500, Monopod and lots of cold weather gear!

Mankato, US
          

Rooster pheasant in flight. I chose this image to post as it's one I was seeking for years. I've got many winging rooster images but none as lucky as this capture which includes many desirable elements like a decent BG, good light and a sharp subject.

This bird flushed practically at foot in high winds and struggled to get airborne which made it easier to grab focus and get a few nice frames.

D300, Nikkor 300/2.8 @ F5.6, SS 1/3200, ISO 640

In response to Reply # 0


Simcoe, CA
          

D7000, 1/1000s, f/9.0, ISO640, 85mm Micro, Handheld

I used burst mode because the flowers were swaying in the breeze and captured a few good in-focus shots using this method. Focus was AF-C and center spot sensor and just kept clicking and viewing though eyepiece. ISO might have been on Auto but can't recall.

#8. "Common Dolphins showing off."
In response to Reply # 0

We went looking for whales off the West Cork coast, just outside Baltimore Harbour, did not manage to find any on that day but found a large pod of common dolphins, all willing to show off just how far they can make it out of the water.

#14. "Short-earred Owl"
In response to Reply # 0


New Paltz, NY, US
          

This photo came as a pleasant surprise to me. These owls are very active from dusk through overnight so it is usually a challenge to have enough light to make a good image. Although the low light would usually be considered a flaw, I particularly love how this turned out because it displays an accurate rendering of the lighting conditions as these owls go on the hunt at dusk.

I was having a hard time getting close to the flock of these beautiful ducks. A pair of them swam right by me while I was standing in a blind. Good lighting and he was in full plumage, so I took his picture.

This may sound like a stupid question but here goes: The rules do not mention if the images have to have been taken in 2013. For those who did not know of this contest in 2011 or 2012......or were less active in that specialty in 2013. Are they allowed in ?

In response to Reply # 0


Atlanta, US
          

Most of my wildlife photography is in native environments, but we can't forget that captive subjects can provide great photo ops. This is a three day old gorilla infant from Zoo Atlanta. The zoo has a terrific gorilla habitat and breeding program and had two infants born this year. This newborn was pink and nearly hairless - making it look very human-like.

Zoo Atlanta's lowland gorillas are in a large habitat and live as a family. Here you have 9 month old Andi - with her mother LuLu - watching other gorillas in the habitat. The touching of the hands and similarity of the looks turn this into a very human-like portrait.

I was sitting close to the edge of my local lake photographing the ducks in the setting sun, when this duckling began 'performing' what appeared to be balletic moves. I particularly liked this image as I'd caught the dripping of water from it's foot.

this is a poignant picture for me - these two western screech owls every evening and night had duets of calls and courting rituals and flew around my house for over a month and then one was killed by a vehicle on the nearby road,owls mate for life , and the mate stayed almost 2 weeks after, plaintively calling continuously all night looking for its partner ,it was so sad

#127. "Owl Watching the Fireworks show"
In response to Reply # 0


Eugene, US
          

We were up on our hill watching the start of the 4th of July show when this owl flew in and landed in the tree nearby. It seemed to be watching the show with us. It turned several times to see the action going off in different directions. It stayed until a really loud "boom" scared it off. Lucky timing
