This month’s theme, selected by last month’s winner, kidsthehall45, is "Simplicity"


Not everyone is lucky enough to live nearby a magnificent landscape feature such as mountains, but everyone can use judicious composition to capture a striking mood whereby a single portion of the frame is emphasized.

So this month the challenge is to capture a single (can be man-made) object in a landscape and showcase it in a simple yet evocative manner.


Participating in our monthly contests is a fun way help us become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work each month.

These monthly contests are the preliminary rounds for the Annual Nikonians Photo Contest where you have the opportunity to win attractive prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.

The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the theme, and creativity just to name a few.

The winning image will be added to the Landscape Forum Winner’s Gallery. The winner will be recognized in our weekly newsletter and will receive a printable Certificate of Photographic Achievement.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!

Sample image by kidsthehall45

This was taken 180 degrees from sunset during Chicago's encounter with the 'polar vortex'. The lake was steaming and an old breaker is covered with ice and snow.
