This months theme is Floral Landscapes. It is that time of the year, at least in the northern hemisphere, where flowers are in bloom. When they are part of a landscape they can add a nice touch of color or simply create a more pleasant photograph. For this one a flower or flowers must be included in the composition AND be prominent enough such that the viewer identifies the picture as a floral landscape. In other words, the theme itself stands out. This type of theme often works well with wide angle lenses when flowers are in the foreground and the camera is close to exaggerate the perspective. Of course that is just one example of a floral landscape. Please note that this theme is not to be confused with a flower closeup capture, a landscape must be present, not simply flowers.

RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but ONLY ONE PICTURE/post
--Include a title in the subject line
--Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
--Previously posted images are welcome but ot previous winners
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--NO excessively post processed images unless that is the theme
--No people in the composition such that the people become or compete for the main subject
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists - and may or may not be randomly removed during the month without notice. To be considered as a finalist the post must be a Landscape - see criteria here, AND also meet the monthly theme such that the theme is a standout feature - what one thinks about when looking at the picture. Image enhancement in the digital darkroom is acceptable as long as the final result looks mostly like a photo - the exception is when the theme specifically allows for digital art.

Six images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image will be added to the Landscape Winners Gallery

Good Luck
