Theme: "Night" - Photos are created with light, so what can you do when most of the light is taken away? Break out your tripods, folks, because this contest is all about night shooting!

Timeframe: Your entry must be emailed to finalgearphoto@gmail.com on or before midnight Mountain Time, July 8th, 2007.
Prize: Bragging rights, and a position in the Winners' Gallery!

Restrictions: Please follow the following restrictions in order to submit an eligible entry.

- Your image must be a maximum of 1000 pixels (height or width), and a minimum of 500 pixels (height or width).
- Your submission email should have the title of the image and "Contest #9" in the subject. Please title your images, as the poll must have some way to distinguish between them - I don't want half the vote options to be "Untitled."
- Also, when you email your submission, make sure you include your FinalGear screen name so I know who's submitting what!
- Only one submission per user. Please do not create multiple accounts to submit more images, as it is 1) unethical, and 2) statistically reduces your chance of winning anyway.
- Your image must NOT contain any borders or signatures or anything to identify the photo as your own. The images will be stripped of EXIF data as to make the vote 100% anonymous. Please do not mention which photo is yours, and please do not post that image anywhere until the contest is over.
- Your image must have been taken after the contest has started, I will not accept old photos that happen to match the subject. This contest is designed to promote creativity, not find out who has the biggest backlog of good photos.
- Your image may be altered in whatever imaging software you choose, without actually altering the content of the photograph. (i.e. you can alter the curves as much as you want, but you can't paste in David Hasselhoff.) Editing out distracting non-content objects such as power lines is also acceptable.
- Please keep the submissions tasteful and without gore/nudity. I like nude photography as much as the next guy, but this is a public forum. Don't submit anything you wouldn't put up in a public area.

If you have any comments or suggestions about the rules of the FinalGear contests, please voice them in the appropriate forum, or in this thread if you want.

When submitting your image, feel free to suggest a topic for the next contest!

Good luck, and have fun!
 
Haha, I've been thinking about going out night shooting here for a while, but haven't really gotten around to it yet. I guess now I'll have to!
 
Hey, this isn't fair! It's midsummers day tomorrow and the sun won't go down at all during the night :(

:lol: :p

(then again, I have the benefit of more light and everyone is at their summer cabins getting drunk -> city looks practically abandoned...)

Just thought of that as well (although it isn't affecting me that much) - I'm already looking forward what you'll make out of it, guess this time we?ll know your picture! :lol:

Nice theme by the way, I hope that I'll be able to make a decent contribution.

To day is the longest day here too, but the sun is setting for about 6 hrs, so it should be possible to take some night shots Atleast with my camera, 15 sec exposure on mine is like a sec or 2 on a 350D
 
I'm so in. Or rather I will be once I make my submission... :D
 
Bump. Only one more full night in order to capture entries! :)
 
lemme see if i get mine in in time!
edit: well its been sent, hope it makes it in this time!

I did go out and scout a couple ideas during the day, but once it came to midnight I realised 1. that there's too much ambient street lights where I live and 2. I'm not keen on the dark (no car so'd have to cycle) to go much further afield by myself.

Oops.
 
Im itching to post the other photos from my set but cant untill the thing is over and done with. so, um, when is this voting gonna take place? i cant wait as this will be my first attempt at this!
 
cool cool, i know it takes quite a bit to organize something in just one city, let alone pretty much the entire planet....thanks!
