It was just over two years ago that the first in the series of NikoniansPress/Rocky Nook books commenced production. That book, Mastering the Nikon D300, by Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) has been one of the most popular in the series, which is now quickly approaching publication of the seventh book.
Nikonians co-founder J. Ramón Palacios put out a call for images to help illustrate the opening chapters, and the rest is history.

Now--- Darrell Young's Mastering the Nikon D300/D300S is currently in the final stages, and pre-orders are available. On the surface, you may assume it's just a re-hash of the previous book, adding D300S information. This is not the case. Following publication of the first D300 book, Darrell and the publication teams at both Rocky Nook and NikoniansPress followed through with more books, and with each successive project (added to the steady stream of reader comments and suggestions) Darrell has produced a totally new book in both content and scope.

A totally new book deserves a shot at new chapter opening images, so we're putting out the call for the second round of image submissions for Mastering the Nikon D300/D300S.
If your image is chosen as a chapter opening illustration, you will be receiving full byline credit and a free copy of the book as soon as it comes off the presses.
Here are the basics on this request: The selection process will be done by our publication teams looking at your shared submissions in this discussion thread.

The images we seek will eventually be in the vertical format, measuring 6"x9" at 300 pixels per inch (1800 x 2700 pixels). For now, all we need to share in this thread is a lower resolution version which should only be about 500 pixels wide by 750 pixels tall.

Vertical is a key factor. In previous image searches we had many outstanding photographs that would have been great additions, but for the fact they were horizontals.
For now, we're asking that if you have a killer shot that displays not only your photographic skills — but also the ability of either the Nikon D300 or D300S to capture your vision of that image. Variety, different perspectives and creativity will be the most important.

Post it here in this forum. If you have more than one, please limit your posting to the top three.
The publication team will be contacting you during the last week in July to let you know we have selected your image as a strong contender via email and PM. That contact will include a request for not only the image, but also a sentence or two regarding the circumstances of the shooting environment and specifics on the sending of the actual large resolution file.
We will need the EXIF data from your submission so please leave that intact. If it is not in the image file, please provide the EXIF via text.

Images from both the Nikon D300 and D300S are eligible, and we'd love to have an equal measure of both, but the model of the camera will not be the deciding factor alone.
Show us what you've got!
