This months theme is Curves. More specifically C-curves and S-curves, which are often powerful compositional elements that leads the eye through the image, often shifting the visual impact from static to dynamic, especially when they start in the foreground and go off into infinity.

Participating in our monthly contests is a fun way help us 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 Nikonians Photo 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 Landscape Forum Winner’s 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 7 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.
-- No people in the composition such that the people become or compete for the main subject.
-- 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.
-- 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.
