Photo Challenge

PHOTONews Spring 2011 Challenge Winners

Congratulations to the winners of the quarterly PHOTONews Challenge!

Autumn Lake, Algonquin Park
Stephen Elms of Waterdown, Ontario, photographed this idyllic scene with a Nikon D3S and 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, shooting at 0.6 seconds and f/22, ISO 200.
“This was the view from our campsite on a canoe trip into the Algonquin Park Interior in September.”

The Battle Rages On
Marian Dragiev of Mississauga, Ontario, captured this image of two fighting male mallards using a Nikon D7000 and a 70-300mm telephoto lens, shooting at a speed of 1/1250s and f/5.6, ISO 1100.
“This photograph shows a scene from the wildest fight I witnessed during the mating season. Both of the male ducks bit each other, and even attempted to drown one another for the contested female. The loser was lucky to escape with his life! Due to the poor lighting conditions I had to use a high ISO value of 1100 to get enough speed to freeze the action. I used continuous shooting in order to capture the most dynamic scenes of the fight.”

Mom and Baby
Shirley Davis of Calgary, Alberta, photographed this mother Mule deer cleaning her newborn in Waterton Lakes National Park with a Canon 40D and a 70-300mm zoom lens, shooting at 1/400 second and f/5.6, ISO 400.
“After approaching slowly, I was able to photograph a series of loving moments like this between the mother and her new fawn. I was honored she allowed me to be so close. My lens was only at 240mm for this photo.”

Goodbye For Now
Dianne Monette of Sudbury, Ontario, captured this moose with a Canon 40D and 70-200mm lens @ 70mm, shooting @ 1/400 sec., f/11, ISO 400.
“This shot was taken near St Charles, Ont., early morning with the sun still rising and a bit of fog. Luckily a collision was avoided.”

Clowns of the Sea
On a trip to Newfoundland last summer, Megan Lorenz of Etobicoke, Ontario, captured these comic Atlantic puffins performing for the camera with a Canon 1D4 and 500mm lens. 1/100th of a second at f/6.3.
