"December Contest: Best/Favorite of 2012"


US
          

This months theme is your Best or Favorite of 2012. As usual we dedicate the December contest theme of the year help equalize any handicaps one might have for competing in previous contests. This one is about showing off your Best or Favorite macro or closeup capture 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.

RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but only one image/post
--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

The top 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 Macro Contest Winners Gallery

Emperor Dragonfly in flight

Fuji S2 Pro, Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 D AF @ 231mm, ISO 800, 1/3000, f/6.7, hand held.
Taken whilst waiting for an Air Boat ride at Boggy Creek

816x631 pixel crop from 4256x2848 pixel image resized to 800 pixels longest edge
Not the sharpest image, I admit, but these things don't stay still, and rarely land.
I have a couple of sharper pictures of an Emperor in flight, but they are not from this year.

Earlier this year I spent some time learning to photography flowers. I must continue on this mission, however continue my quest for even better flower images. Here is the first of a few of my favorites or best (I think) depending on ones opinion. This one is taken with D7000, Tamron 60mm, ISO 200, 1/125s, f/20, Manual Exposure, LR4.2.

Kathy, thanks for commenting and that you like it.

What is interesting about this one, is I never quite liked the tonal quality of the rich red roses (reds are so hard to do in artificial light) so I experimented and liked the monochrome results in this conversion. I am sort of breaking the "rules" with only two roses vs. an odd number, but in this case I really thought it worked nonetheless.

Thanks Kathy...my wife loves this one so I have printed it for her and she has it in her home office.

My camera club in Milwaukee is called the Urban Ecology Center Photo Club. The Urban Ecology Center where we have our meetings allows us to display images. I am displaying for the next two month some of my nature images which include some of these flower photos and a few landscapes. It is good for the kids that come to the Center (a place where kids gather to learn about nature and how to better appreciate it) to see images about nature in a little different way. I like that I got a chance to print, mount, frame and hang some for them to see.

Sheri,

I'm not sure you missed anything with this shot. I think it's wonderful just the way it is. Those eyes grab attention.

Found this in the middle of a large meadow and missed hitting it by a couple of inches. Could have been very unpleasant.

These European Skippers are abundant in early to mid June in this one meadow I often go to. On a morning with a lot of dew it's not uncommon to find 20-30 or more sitting on various plants just waiting for their close up. I liked the way this one was perched.

This one was tough to get. He kept moving around this milkweed plant. I kept following him trying to get a good shot, fortunately he was slow. I wasn't sure I had anything worth keeping until I got to see them on the computer.

D90, Tokina 100mm Macro, F8, 1/30 second

This photo used 13 shots in a stack.

It was difficult to get it all. The bud throws its petals forward about two inches where the mature flower pulls its petals back about three inches.

Some layers were simply outlines. I wanted to do something different and capture what I thought was the essence of this American prairie flower.

Thank you for viewing.
