Top Nikon images from the International Lands cap e Photographer of the Year competition
The best landscape images of 2016
Now in its third year, The International Landscape Photographer of the Year Award celebrates the very best in landscape photography, with entrants required to submit a portfolio of at least four images. Here’s a selection of our favourite shots taken on a Nikon
Winner, International Landscape Photograph of the Year Ruacana Falls, Namibia Hougaard Malan, South Africa Nikon D810, 70-200mm f/4, 3 secs, f/8, ISO100
N-Photo says: It’s the dramatic lighting in this image that makes it so striking, and so original. Waterfalls are usually shot in shade, but by shooting into the light, Hougaard has managed to render the drama and power of the falls as something serene and other-worldly. Technically, he’s nailed what must have been a tricky exposure, and the threesecond shutter speed provides just the right amount of blur in the tumbling tendrils of water.
