Over the past couple of months My Nikon Life members have taken part in the exciting “Who are you with Nikon?“ competition which has been running on our Facebook page.

We’ve been overwhelmed by the response, to say the least, with over 2,000 passionate photographers taking the time to submit their own take on what “Who are you with Nikon?” means to them. So a huge thank you to everyone who took part, we really value your contribution.

Introducing our “Who are you with Nikon” judge, the world renowned Jasin Boland

With over 2,000 fabulous entries to go through it was tough to come up with a list of the best 10. That’s why we entrusted the job to Nikon Ambassador and acclaimed Hollywood stills photographer, Jasin Boland. Jasin's been behind the lens on some of Hollywood’s real blockbusters and he was delighted to share his expertise and experience with us.

With a little help from everyone who voted for their favourite shots, we were able to whittle down all the entries to a list of the Top 100 (voting was very popular so a big thanks to everyone).

From there Jasin selected our 10 winners based on subject matter, composition, technical excellence and the way the shot made him feel. We think you’ll agree, the 10 images he has selected are great shots.

Read on and see for yourself. But first, let’s hear from Jasin, in his own words.

I AM BLOWN AWAY. The response we have had in our “Who are you with Nikon” competition, and in particular, the photography has been spectacular. I can't remember ever seeing a competition where 10 cameras were up for grabs and to be a part of it all has been a great honour.

It really has been an all-encompassing competition and I think a pretty good lesson in photography as a business as well. Not only was it necessary to submit an outstanding image to be in the chase, but then you had to use your marketing skills to get ‘Likes’ on our Facebook page to ensure your image stood out and made it to the top 100. It's been unique in that normally in magazine or web based competitions you select your best images, submit and then sit back and wait for the judge’s decision.

With this competition you had to be constantly on the ball amping up interest in your photograph, and to those of you that took our brief to heart I congratulate you. It's worth noting that you only needed 12 votes to be in the running for the quiver of Nikon beauties.

Thanks again everyone for entering and I hope we can do this again soon and remember interpreting the brief is as important as the image itself. In the meantime I look forward to seeing many more of your photographs up on our page, especially yours Jade! Enjoy that camera, I loved the journey you took me on." - Jasin. October 2011
