Enter the 4th Digital Lightroom Photography Competition to win a free copy of Topaz Clarity!  The theme for this competition is Urban Landscape.

Check out thedigitallightroom.wordpress.com as they will be posting articles in the coming weeks about the urban landscape and how best to capture it. Here is the basic definition of this type of photography:

  •  Describes a city or a town in some way.
  •  It attempts to capture in image form, our experience of city or town life.
  •  The urban landscape concentrates on structures and architecture rather than people although urban landscape photographs often contain people.
  •  The photographs may deal with the inner urban landscape, the closer view or may take a much broader view.


Closing date for the competition is Friday, 28th June.

See here for more details.
