Your Best of 2010 Photo Contest

We are launching a new photo contest over at Visual Wilderness! The theme is Your Best of 2010 and, as a happy coincidence with the release of our eBook Essential Filters for Digital Nature Photography, the prize for this contest is Singh-Ray’s new Vari-N-Trio filter (see my review of the filter here). To see what this filter can do check out last week’s weekly photo. Entries will be accepted starting on Dec. 1, 2010. Final deadline is Dec. 31, 2010 at 11:59 EST. To enter go to Visual Wilderness and click on Enter The Contest. Thanks to the good folks over at Singh-Ray for donating a fantastic prize!

* Density can be varied from 4 to 8 f-stops just by rotating the indicator from Min to Max

* Polarization is controlled by rotating BOTH rings together, at any density setting

* Color enhancement is always working to subtly intensify the colors in your scene

* Allows you to use longer exposures to blur motion or flowing water, or other long-exposure effects

* Permits use of larger apertures in bright light for more shallow depth-of-field effects

* The built-in polarizer reduces glare from sky, water, wet surfaces, glass, and other reflective surfaces to improve color saturation and contrast

* Can function like an “iris” for digital video cameras to control exposure

* Available in 77mm only (Standard and Thin Ring mounts)
