Friends,

The NikoniansPress book, Mastering the Nikon D7100, is going to the printer in a few days. We need a great HORIZONTAL image, shot with a Nikon D7100, for the rear cover. Whoever's image is selected will receive a free copy of the book, in addition to enjoying the accolades from having their image published in a popular worldwide book, with full credits in the Credits for Nikonians Images section of the book.

The image must have a certain wow factor and be rather narrow so that it can be cropped to fit in the narrow vertical image space on the back of the book. Here is a sample image from the Nikon D600 book:

The final image will be 1575 x 600 pixels at 300 dpi. Therefore, if you think you might have a suitable image and are willing to be published in Mastering the Nikon D7100, please submit your image(s) this week. We only have a few days left. I really should make a submission to them on Friday, if possible. There is no need to crop the image since that will be done by the publisher. Just make sure the image has a narrow (600 pixel tall) band with an interesting subject that makes people say "wow!"

I have to submit several images to the publisher, Rocky Nook, and they will make the final choice as to which image is used. I wish you success in being chosen and thank you very much for making your image submission!

Here are a three recent images that I resized to 1575x600 to see what they looked like. Don't know if they have the wow look you're looking for, but you are welcome to use any if you desire. Tried to upload 1575 width but wasn't allowed , so uploaded 1200 wide

Scenery photos are surely great for the backcover. Anyhow, these are some motorsport photo to demonstrate the fast autofocus aspect of the Nikon D7100

August 1 2007 a bridge in Minneapolis collapses. In the collapse 13 people are killed, and 145 people are injured. This is the bridge that was built to replace it.

Darrell -

Here are four files from Gloucester Cathedral from my trip this summer. I have had to change the format, since 1200 pixels long edge is the limit here, sRGB, <300KB, JPEG.

D7100, 10.5mm fisheye, cropped to 2.625:1 ratio (1575/600)

Hoping this is OK - I will be happy to send better files to the publisher if they like these.

Sad to say that I have no photos yet to share, but to all that did, these are wonderful. With patience and practice, I hope to learn to do as well as these.

Thank you.
