It is that time again -- NikoniansPress/Rocky Nook author Darrell Young is preparing his latest book--

Mastering the Nikon D800

Click on image to view larger version


Darrell's books in the Mastering series have included images donated by our members and he wants to continue the tradition. The images are vertical and are used to highlight chapters.

Basically, to keep from having to list an enormous number of things, the bottom line is we want the image you submit to show what a skilled photographer can do with a Nikon D800. It needs to have a
certain “wow” factor so that it doesn’t appear to be a snapshot.
All members who have a vertical image included in the book will receive a free copy of Mastering the Nikon D800 and be listed in a special Credits for Chapter Opening Images section of the book, with information on the tech specs (ISO, lens, aperture, shutter speed, shooting conditions).
Each photographer selected will also have a credit
inserted beneath the submitted picture at its location in the book (opening of each chapter).

It all starts here in this discussion thread.
Post your best shots here (no need to be huge as long as they are taken with a D800 or D800E). The publication team will review all the shots within the next few weeks and contact members who have submitted an ideal image for the book.

They will be provided with the technical specs for the submission.

As a hint -- here are some of subjects that have a high interest:
--Cute child’s face with an uncluttered background, prefer shallow depth of field.
--Wildlife (action or static. We always like to have a tracked subject for the chapter on AF)
--Pet animal closeups without distracting elements
--Beautiful woman shot (PG rated)
--Handsome man shot (PG rated)
--Sports (group action)
--Sports (action closeup)
--Motorsports (cycle, car, airplane, etc.)
--Closeups or macro (well executed of an interesting subject)
--Still life (interesting arrangements of objects)
--Landscapes and nature scenic (beauty in nature)

There is a very short turn-around for this book-- because it needs to be ready for the printers in a matter of weeks (not months).
