"January Contest - Cold"


Atlanta, US
          

The January contest theme selected by November winner Howard Nease is Cold - in light of all the cold weather faced in North America at this time of year.

This contest theme suggests cold weather, snow, ice, and subjects obviously photographed in cold weather. For those in not so cold climates - this includes images from your freezer such as objects frozen in ice with interesting compositions or lighting.

Be sure to enter your image title in the subject line - don't simply reply without changing the subject line.

Here are a couple of sample images from Howard Nease.








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 Best of 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 Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery for the Macro and Close-Up Forum.

We look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!

RULES:
-- Post up to 5 images but only one image per 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.

Note: The number of finalists will be proportional to the number of entries. 50+ post will have 6 finalists, less than 50 will be 5 finalists, and 25 or less will have only 4 finalists.

Sorry , guys, maybe I didn't pick the best topic, especially since some our best macro shooters are in the southern hemisphere.

D800 - Sigma 150 Macro - ISO 100 - F/6.3 - 1/400

Manual everything. Hand held.

These are ice crystals naturally formed on a window - the outside temperature was near 0 - shot from the warmth of the inside!

Minimal finishing in Adobe Lightroom 5 - mostly to increase contrast and remove some distracting dirt spots from the window.

This was shot on a frozen creek in the White Mountains of Arizona on Christmas Eve 2013. The branch lay on top of the ice, so it must have fallen after the freeze. I shot it late afternoon- the sun fell on the pine trees to the east, casting a warm reflection on the frozen creek.

ISO 800, f/5.3, 85mm (Nikon 18-140mm lens), 1/400

I am brand new to digital photography and was experimenting with and learning the camera, so I purely lucked out with the settings.

Also, I'm still so new to digital photography that I just learned today how to resize my jpeg to fit the requirements of this forum.

This resized version looks like it lost a lot of detail and crispness- which I feel especially important to tell the story adequately. Plus I was so proud of how lucky I was when I made this image!

Can anyone please suggest how I can make sure that my uploads here look like they do on my computer (MacBook Pro with retina display)? I currently use iPhoto but may switch to Aperture or another program.

I can email the original to someone for manipulation if necessary.

Thanks!

One thing you can do is to post a larger version that still fits the guidelines.

Start with your original version and resize it so the it is 1200 pixels wide.

Then apply some sharpening. Resizing takes away a bit of the sharpness. I am not familiar with your programs sharpening tools.

Then when you save the file adjust the JEPG compression until the file size is 300kb or less.

The image still will not quite match up to the full size image on your retina display but it should still look good. All entries are subject to the same limitations.

>and resize it so the it is 1200 pixels wide.

I know I've read rules somewhere for the contests that the longest size is to be 1200 pixels, but under the rules posted above, I'm not seeing it.

Please help me find what I'm missing.

Thank you,
Brent
