This months theme is Digital Artistry.



As you may know contest entries that are enhanced with image editing programs like Photoshop and various plugins are acceptable. The line in the sand occurs when excessive post processing makes the picture look less like a photo and more like a painting or some type of surrealistic art form. Those type of photos are normally not permitted as they are more a measure of ones digital darkroom skills than ones photographic skills (the big 3: subject, composition, & light). However, once in a while we have a theme dedicated to Digital Art. This month you can let your imagination run wild to create Digital Landscape Art - in other words you have a license to Photoshop!

Including your secret sauce, (methods, software used...) helps others to learn, but it is not required.

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 ot 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
