The theme of the June contest is "Wide Angle Close-Ups" - selected by Arlon Motsch (arlon) winner of the May contest.

Wider lenses provide a different perspective for macro and close up photography. Wider angles can provide context of the environment, or simply allow a different angle of view. Non-macro lenses can be used with short extension tubes to allow very short minimum focus distances.

For the purpose of this contest, we want focal lengths of 50mm or wider. Please provide image details such as the focal length used, extension tubes if any, or any other special techniques.

Any subject is fair game. The important thing is to use a wide angle perspective creatively.

Here are a couple of sample images from Arlon.

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!!!
