The team behind Editor's Choice


The Nikonians Editor's Choice team consists of moderators and administrators at Nikonians. They are all experienced photographers representing a wide range of photographic genres and long-standing members of our community.

The Team will continually review images posted in both the Forums and Nikonians Galleries to identify exceptional work produced by the members of the Nikonians community. The most recent Image that is chosen as Editor’s Choice will be featured prominently on the home page. All images will appear under the Editor’s Choice tab on the homepage and in the galleries. They will also be permanently labeled with an Editor’s Choice badge.

The criteria that the team will use when choosing images is based on, the Overall Impact of the image, Color/Tone, Composition, Technical Execution.
