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 and Technical Execution.

@kmh: Yes, we can (and probably should) include more info about each image directly where the image is shown. BUT, you can access more information about the image by clicking on the small "camera" symbol in one of the corners -- IF the image is from the galleries. If it is from the forums, that camera symbol does not exist. Once viewing the image in the galleries, you can see whatever information the photographer wanted to share.

Marvelous pictures! I wish I could read the captions and find out where they were taken.

The description says the team strives to find “executional work” by members. Do you mean to say “exceptional work?”
