August Contest – “Speed”

This month’s challenge is “Speed”

In many sports, it is all about speed. How fast the athlete can run, swim, sail, etc. The speed of the ball, puck, racket, bat, etc.

So, the Challenge this month is to show images that convey a sense of speed. Perhaps it is by panning the shot, or creative blur!!

Example: The winning image from 2009 by sboswell

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.

The winning image will be added to the Sports 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!!!
