"April Contest - The Eyes Have It"
Thu 03-Apr-14 12:04 PM by ericbowles


The theme of the April contest is The Eyes Have It" - selected by Darlene Palmer (pasknucklehead) winner of the February contest.

Any kind of eyes will do, people, animals, an eye of a needle,or even an eye of a potato. Let your imagination run wild.

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 Darlene.









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.

Wasn't thinking of this months challenge when I took this shot, but afterward it came to mind and I figured what the heck! The intent when the shot was taken was to just test the Sigma I just recently acquired. To get my young pup to stand still for the shot, I held a tennis ball in one hand and camera in the other; hence the subject title (he was waiting for me to throw it). In fact you can see my silhouette in his one eye!

#39. "RE: April Contest - The Eyes Have It -- The Eyes Of A Clarinet #10284"
In response to Reply # 0
Fri 18-Apr-14 03:26 AM by KenLPhotos


These eyes are the reed, mouthpiece and ligature of a clarinet.
Even at f40, there is not enough depth of field to have the whole 'beak' sharp. Since I don't have glide rails for the camera or stacking software, I made the beak sharp manually. I took two photos each focused on different spots and cloned the sharp parts into one image. A bit of a problem is that when focusing on different spots, the images come out different sizes. So with a bit of math, I reduced the larger image by 1.05506% to make them identical.

We have a super set of entries and some very creative ideas. Great work, everyone!

Lets see more "eyes"


Don't forget about the Online Assignment -> Cover Shot - Field & Stream.


Lets get creative - a macro would make a great cover for that magazine!!

Pure chance.

We arrived at a French Motel late at night and Caroline called out look at this monstrous cat by the car. I was holding my camera while unpacking so photographed it to see it better. It was huge and even while taking the shot I saw its eyes! Presumably by day it had blue eyes, but we never saw it except at night round the bins. Its body language was friendly, but would you stroke it? It was the size of a Cocker spaniel.
