This month’s challenge is “travel icons.”

Last month we were looking for shots in our own back yards. This time around we want to see iconic travel subjects i.e. The pyramids at Giza, Taj Mahal, Grand Canyon, etc.

Let’s see if our Nikonians members can produce some unique visions of some of these often overly photographed locations.

Archive shots are permissible.

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.
The winning image will be added to the Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery for the Travel Forum.
(the gallery will be set up as soon as we have our first winner.)
The monthly winners will also choose the finalists and the theme for the following month.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!

RULES:
-- Post up to 5 images but only one image per post
-- Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
-- Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners.
-- When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
-- Include a title in the subject line
-- 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.
