This month’s contest, chosen by our November winner is “Cover Shot”
You have been hired by Sports Illustrated to take the cover shot for the next issue. It doesn't matter which sport you shoot, however, the image must clearly be "cover worthy". Your image(s) must be presented in the "portrait" format as if it were going directly on the cover of the magazine. Landscape shots will not be permitted. The name of your image can simply be the sport represented in the image.
Participating in our monthly contests is a fun way to 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.
I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!
RULES: -- Post up to 5 images but only one image per post -- This is a contest – Please present your best work -- Include shooting info so we can learn from each other -- Include a title in the subject line -- When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post. -- Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners. -- 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 -- WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice.

The keeper's team had just scored the tying goal with almost no time to go - the ref placed the ball in the center of the field and as he backed away a quick pass to the forcing Mid followed by a long and very high kick resulted in a trajectory virtually impossible to reach resulting in the winning goal - talk about a "Hail Mary".
