Yes -- what they heck are the talking about? Is that why my landscapes suck, because I don't know what landscape layering is? (I could look it up... but as long as someone started a thread... :)

I was thinking like this. It has a strong foreground (the grass and path) a midground (the beach) and background (the sky)

That would certainly meet the challenge, but I'd call that more of a stacked hills effect. For landscape layering, I'd like to see more immediate foreground (in focus) and more sky elements in the distance (also, in focus), in addition to elements of interest in the mid-range.

Layers in this one.

Great challenge. I think the point is to include strong foreground and enough background interest to create depth.

David Muench, my favorite landscape photographer, uses this style extensively. Worth a look even if you aren't entering!

I think these are good examples (of mine):

Portrait mode is very useful for this, though Landscape can work too (Richard's is a good example).

I found this how to for focus stacking jewelry, the principle should be the same. The steps are easy to follow, even for a Photoshop dummy like me.

the description says urban or rural or something in between. do you think voters will consider a seascape as dnmc?

Depends on the day and the challenge. I think a well done seascape has every possibility of winning.

Great question. Being from the midwest, this actually is a tough challenge. We've been socked in with clouds, water looks like mud, trees are sticks, grass is brown, no snow yet, etc. etc. My first thought was head to water, but I didn't think it would hold up. Urban sprawl vs a green country side, desert, or mountains? Not a chance. AND, to top it all off, I'm in Hawaii next Wednesday!

I would love to see some seascapes..

I always considered a seascape as a subcategory of a landscape. Works for me.

During the Colorado Flood of 2013, all of my landscapes looked like seascapes. I support seascapes as meeting this challenge.

oh good. i'll probably go with a seascape then.

Well! That's something that amazed me. If photographers as good as you guys are unaware of this jargon, then I think I can forgive myself for being unaware of it :)

I would not...and I'm very picky about challenge descriptions.

I think

1. that was their way of saying "any" landscape.
2. There is an ocean "between" rural Georgia and urban London unless my geography is way off, so a seascape would clearly meet the terms of the challenge.

Same here. Although I might question Richard's example above, as it's just a bit more wildlife, touch less landscape. I think I would prefer landscapes with land/plants as the subjects, perhaps with a BIF or something like one or two deer... Still, it's a good example of layering, and having SOME sort of subject is a very good thing.

I don't intentionally place wildlife in my landscape scenes. LOL!!! Sometimes, they are just "there". I apologize for my offense.
