DPNow Salon Competition No. 91 - Artificial Light

DPNow Salon Competition No. 91

Firstly thanks to Mike Parr for the last salon and for choosing me as the winner.

The theme for salon No. 91 is Artificial Light.

This is open to as broad an interpretation as your imagination will allow. Anything from a simple portrait shot using your camera's built in flash to massively complex street lighting of the kind seen at the fiestas in my part of the world. Show us what you got !

Closing date will be 25th August 2010 at midnight BST.

The rules are as follows:

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 foto/photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon tread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 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 thread (not as links to an image held somewhere else)

4. Comments only on entries are welcome witin 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.

8. 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 with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

Good luck have fun

This was taken from the cab of a train speeding through Hendon station in North London! All I have done is boosted the contrast and adjusted one of the levels.

Night shot of the Bournemouth Eye (from the top of a bus last night). I was looking at the balloon when I suddenly remembered the subject of this Salon. Click!

Hi All,

Well done Bear on winning the last salon, artificial light is a great subject!

Here is my entry, this was taken last weekend, I carried out a photoshoot for my colleagues Lotus Elise. (also happens to be my one of my favourite cars!)

Re: DPNow Salon Competition No. 91 - Artificial Light

We were staying in Lake Garda and came in one evening at the beginning of our week there and heard music. I looked outside and saw these dancers in the courtyard of the Hotel next door. (Stephen you may recognise this as I think you stayed there earlier in the year or the previous year).

Every night I watched, because I wanted to take more photos, but it seemed that it was a "Once a week event." I just wish I'd been there a little earlier, because I only took 3 images before the music stopped for the evening.

Anyway, this is my entry for Artificial Light.

I remember it well Audrey, we had a good week there the year before you. Its a great pity you couldn't get more shots of the dancers.

Re: DPNow Salon Competition No. 91 - Artificial Light

I took this at the clubhouse of a local football club. They appear to have invested in a laser lightshow. I do have some others with the full show on my flickr stream, but my particular favourite from the evening is this one

Some great entries so far. There is a little over 2 days to go, let's have some more.

Here's one of mine, hopefully for inspiration.

Re: DPNow Salon Competition No. 91 - Artificial Light

Having missed the last couple of these salon's I felt the need to stick a pic in, this fitted the brief pretty well!

Re: DPNow Salon Competition No. 91 - Artificial Light

Didn't manage to take one that fitted this week so have raided my library for one.
