DP Salon Competition No60 - Light

Fortnightly Salon Competition No. 60

LIGHT

Thanks Gez for running the last competition, I am so flattered you chose my entry as a winner. It would also be super to have as many entrants for this one.

This salon is all about light, well....lets face it, it is the life blood of photography after all!

Although this can obviously be interpreted in any way, I am really looking for something creative, something a little different, and not the usual sunsets etc

I will judge on 24th March when I get in from work, so you have until then .


Here are the rules.Please take a moment to read them prior to shooting or uploading your submissions.


1)All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/, they can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the Salon thread. Please keep photos to max 800 pixel wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2)One entry per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3)Entries should be "in line" within the thead(not as links to an image held somewhere else.)

4)Comments only on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5)After the close the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6)The curators decision is final.

7)Winners should be offered first refusal to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that "honour" to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9)These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10)As with all photos posted on DPNow,copyright remains the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

The Prize is the choice of either a CF 4GB Ultimate, SDHC 4GB class 6 or
two SD 2GB Ultimate memory cards.

Re: DP Salon Competition No60 - Light

Hi all, I prefer this second option for the light competition...nature vs tech

Sunlight or lamps

Lights! Camera! Purple!

Self portrait. Only edit was taking the slight bit of pink left from my cheeks), the washed out/blown out wall and skin was all done with lighting. Was practicing high key imaging. Oh, and my hair really was that purple... gawd I miss it. *sighs*

Re: DP Salon Competition No60 - Light

Here's my entry......

I decided to have a go at getting an entry for this competition tonight, at the annual funfair in Uppingham. Everyone else was having fun, I was wandering around with a tripod looking for the perfect shot and muttering under my breath........

........ And this is what I came up with. The image shows the light-trails from an 8s exposure of a fairground ride, taken at ground level against the metal floor.

Regards,

Neil.
