This month’s theme, selected by last month’s winner, skibreeze7, is Silhouettes.

These images should feature the silhouette of something as the main subject element. Could be the silhouette of a mountain, tree, etc. as long as it is a natural object.

The image still needs to be a landscape image. Buildings, people, vehicles or manmade elements may be present as long as they are not the subject of the image.

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!!!
