January 2010 Photo Competition: Entries

Theme:
  • Into the light
    As Sharynideas puts it, "people could take indoor or outdoor shots-sunsets, sunrises or just plain backlit photos."
Entry Period:
  • January 1, 2010 to January 28 6:00pm EST
Voting Period:
  • January 28, 2010 to January 31 6:00pm EST
Discussion Period:
  • January 1, 2010 to January 31 6:00pm EST
Voting Tabulation:
  • Vote for the 3 entries you like the best by considering how well it fits with the chosen theme and how well the technical details were handled.
  • Votes are weighted to give greater weight to First Place votes than to Second and greater weight to Second than to Third place votes:
    • First Place 4 points
    • Second Place 2 points
    • Third Place 1 point
  • In case of a tie, first place will be giving to the person with the most "first place" votes
  • If there is still a tie, first place will be giving to the person with the most "second place" votes
  • If there is still a tie, first place will be giving to the person with the most "third place" votes
  • If there is still a tie, first place will be giving to the person that first posted his/her entry
  • The winner will be notified via retouchpro.com's private messaging and will choose a subject for the following month.
Tips & Rules:
  • Be sure to make your entry as large as possible within the forum's restriction.
  • Each member may submit only one entry for this competition but you may change your entry up until the deadline.
  • The usual "copyright" requirements apply. You must have shot the picture or have the rights to it. Honour system applies.
  • Since this is a learning forum, we'd love to have the technical details: shutter speed, ISO, f-stop etc.
  • This is NOT the forum for photo art filters or art programs and this is NOT the place to showcase your abilities with layers, masks, collages or overlays of multiple images.
  • Entries may be deleted if they do not meet criteria.
  • The winner gets to choose the next assignment PLUS all the accolades that come from being chosen "Winner".
  • Please post your photo submissions without commentary and instead use the Discussion thread for comments on your photo or other photographer's photos.
  • All RetouchPro members may take part in the competition and all members may vote, whether they have submitted an entry or not.

Re: January 2010 Photo Competition: Entries

Shot this today. Light was the focus of this shot, if not necessarily the theme, so I thought it would be acceptable for this month's competition.

It was shot with a single spotlight over head, ISO 400, F/4, 1/30th of a second. I shot it at 70 mm with a 70-200 F/2.8 fixed.

Gasp, choke, choke, I actually got my camera out and took a few pictures the other day. A bunch of us went on a photographer's tour in a cave. Talk about painting with light. Here you go.

Janet

This is only about 70kb. If I get time, I'll do another one for a better post. In the meantime, I hope you can see it ok.

F-11, ISO 400, 8 seconds, lighting: strobe plus cave light.

Re: January 2010 Photo Competition: Entries

I'm changing my entry, I took this last week with the challenge in mind.
I used a 50mm 2.8 lens that I have to manually focus because it wont to auto on my camera. This turned out to be harder that I thought - so I have been practicing. I did some post processing, but just with the color.
