When it comes to nature photography, there’s more to it than finding a pretty spot and dropping the camera on the sticks.

As Ian Plant put it in our November issue:

Foregrounds add depth, and the best add punch, too. Providing a point of reference, they can simplify chaotic scenes. At this placid pool of water during a fiery sunrise, I backed up to incorporate the curving shoreline. Its shape frames the reflection of the mountains, enhancing the composition and adding depth to the image.

We want to see your nature shot with a strong foreground. Your best shot could get you $100 and your picture printed in the pages of Popular Photography!
