Chat Thread for Weekly Competition 14-20 feb 11 "Darkness"
« on: February 13, 2011, 09:44:52 AM »
The theme for this week's comp is "Darkness". We all rely on light for our pics so lets try something that conveys the feeling of darkness. Long night exposures, candles, anything that fits the bill.

Photoshop as little as possible.

Pictures to be taken between 00.01am Monday 14 feb 2011 to 23:59 Sunday 20 February 2011 .
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 21 February 2011.
Poll will be up Tuesday 22 February until Friday 25 February.
Winner to be announced Saturday 26th February.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to
post a topic on the Sunday 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)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted wins.

photos to be taken during the specified dates, ie Monday xx to Sunday xx

pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59 Monday night

Taken a bit too literally i think, choosing between 1/2 a dozen of these at the end of the week will be difficult ;)
Bit more effort required young man :)

With the weather forecast for the rest of the week including weekend, good choice of topic.  :o  :P

I managed to get this while looking for another shot which I didn't like as much

Nice shot Irv. Got my eye on a lonely bus stop under a street light but as Oldboy says the weather might scupper that. Got this as a back up for now.

Off to Sheffield tonight to check out the Uni tomorrow for my eldest. Poll will be up late tomorrow, unless some kind soul steps in & does it for me.
