This month’s theme, selected by last month’s winner, skibreeze7, is "Foreground, Middleground, Background", which is a'rule' to help you create powerful compositions that lead the viewer into the image through a strong foreground element, to a middle ground element, and then to a background element; all three elements must be present in the image.

***PLEASE NOTE: Per the above , images qualifying for this contest *must* have a foreground, a mid ground and a background element - not just depth of field. Images that do not have all three of these elements are not eligible to be finalists.

Here are a couple of links that Darryl provided to help explain this theme in more detail:

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!!!
