Readers' Showcase: Get your best pictures on dpreview homepage
Jul 28, 2014

Hello everyone, you may have seen recently that we're running a series of 'showcase' slideshows featuring the best work from our forum users. This week (this coming Sunday, to be precise) we'd love to feature some of the best work in the nature and wildlife forum.

Here's a recent showcase, to give you some idea of what it looks like:

http://www.dpreview.com/articles/1823007513/reader-showcase-landscape-photography

If you want to be considered, post images in this thread with your name (or the name you want to be credited as), basic information about the image (location as the bare minimum) and a link to your online portfolio, if you have one. Images with smaller watermarks are fine, but large watermarks tend to be distracting at the size we'll use them.

Thanks!

The Camera is only a tool, photography is deciding how to use it.
The hardest part about capturing wildlife is not the photographing portion; it’s getting them to sign a model release
