After loads of entries and hundreds of votes, it's time to unveil the winner of our latest shooting challenge. The winner will take home the fantastic Nikon D7200 DSLR and a lens, together valued at $1,750!
The challenge was to create an amazing low light photo, a space where the Nikon D7200 excels. But you didn't need the newest or most expensive gear, as composition and creativity are critical in this style of photography!
You can still check out the best of the dozens of entries here. There can be only one winner, however, and this time it is...
Having only moved to Perth a couple of weeks ago, I took this challenge as an opportunity to explore my new city. I happened to stumble onto South Perth by accident and was blown away by the skyline (also blew the highlights on my long exposure!)While the skyline itself was quite dazzling, I wanted to contrast it with the dark and moody park bench in the foreground. I wanted to take a few more shots with slightly different compositions, but there were a lot of diners nearby at the Food trucks and I didn’t want to look like too much of a creep. Also, I just wanted some of the tasty smelling treats from the Food truck myself!
Congratulations Raffy! We'll be emailing you soon.
We've reviewed the Nikon D7200 previously, and found it the best non-professional DSLR on the market. It boasts a 24.2 Megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor, combined with a 51 focus points to deliver incredibly sharp low-light images. And once you've taken your pictures, you can enjoy them on the crystal clear 1229k-dot 3.2in LCD screen, or share them with Wifi and NFC.
The AF-S DX 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens is a perfect companion for the D7200. The 18-140mm focus range allows for incredible creativity, from wide angle landscape shots, through portraiture and telephoto snaps, all in a compact lens size. Even better, the built-in Vibration Reduction will allow you to shoot handheld at shutter speeds up to four stops lower than other lenses -- perfect for low-light conditions.
Thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations again to our winners. Make sure you join us for the next challenge!
