This is the CHAT THREAD

LOW LIGHT / DARK

I have been a bit caught out this week by how quickly the nights are drawing in and the days are getting shorter.
But anything low light or dark works.

Pictures to be taken between now and Sunday 4th September, but if you are struggling this week one from your archive is fine.
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23:59 Monday 5th September 2022.
Poll will be up Tuesday 6th August 2022.

Winner to be announced Saturday 10th September 2022.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to;

Post a topic on the Sunday (or sooner) following your declared win
Create an entries thread
Create a chat thread
Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc)
May the Force be with you.

Daft question - but how do you define low light?  I only ask because I often shoot at ISO 10000 + and its not always that dark! I do have some from last weeks holiday in scotland that I think will fit though..

I`d say just don`t shoot at 10,000 iso and capture the low light / darkness of the scene. That said  I`ve been struggling to get any entries in recently as time has passed me by.

You and me both to be honest!

Yes ISO 10000 (Or 25600 that I occasionally shoot at) does tend to turn dark into light!

Not a daft question at all, and I should have made it clear.
In my mind, anything that is not quite dark but getting there. You probably need the lights on to help you see better.
Hopefully not too vague.
May the Force be with you.
