This segment’s theme is “The Rule of Thirds”.

Sticking with our series of composition themed contests, this month we explore one of the best know compositional “rules.” The “Rule of Thirds” is a simple guideline that helps us place our subject or focal point in a pleasing area of the frame.

For anyone not familiar with the Rule of Thirds - Here is a great article from the Nikonians Resources: Composition: The Rule of Thirds – Why?

For inspiration check out the great entries from our January, 2007 Online Assignment + Part 2

Here is the winning image from the January, 2007 Online Assignment by Silver member Jeff Meyers

This is the third of 4 themed segments of the Best of Nikonians 2014 Contest. This segment will be open to entries from August 1 – September 15.

The winner will be announced at the end of September.

The winner will be recognized in our weekly newsletter and will receive a printable Certificate of Photographic Achievement.


In addition to our overall winner, the top ten images will be advanced to compete as finalists in the annual Best of Nikonians 2014 Contest. All ten images will automatically be uploaded to the Best of Nikonians 2014 Gallery. All images must be 1200 pixels on the long side.


This contest, along with the monthly forum contest, are the preliminary rounds for the Annual Best of Nikonians Photo Contest where you have the opportunity to win prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.


Participating in our monthly contests can help us to become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work.


We look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!
