The theme for the February 2012 MBP Assignment is "Intimate Landscape". This idea was originally from Morton Goldberg with actual theme name tweaks for us by Nancy Lehrer. The idea is that you would single out just a tiny part of the landscape but still depict a somewhat grand scene. I for example tend to shoot lanscapes with long lenses, as long as 600mm in fact, to just single out a small area, and I find this approach quite effective. A landscape doesn’t necessary have to be a wide angle or even standard focal length shot. In fact, I think that many landscape shots would benefit from being shot much closer, so let’s give this a try. Thanks for the idea Morton and for your help with the wording Nancy!IMPORTANT: Please do not include your name in a copyright notice or in any form on the image. Any images that are uploaded with a visible name on them will be removed.
Don't worry about removing your name from the EXIF data as this is now hidden until the assignment voting process is finished. In fact, as you cannot include a copyright notice on the image, I suggest you do include this in the EXIF data now, as that will go live after the voting.
Please also make sure you check the Rules and Guidelines
for details of what is allowed, and what is not allowed.
