    Nightlight

    Our theme this week is on lights at night. Your photos must have, as its main subject, lights at night. The light source can be from anything - a candle, street lamp, bright neon signs, car headlights, etc. However, no fireworks or similar displays. The the lights must be taken at night, and this time of day must be clear in the photo, i.e. a picture of a lighted table lamp in a basement would not satisfy this criteria.

    Zz.


    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. But other than that, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    Zz.

    The house was neglected for many years, no one lived there, and no one was harmed.

    Light from a church shining through its glass-in-lead windows at night.

    To complement Janus' entry, this one is from Disney World, and a bit more recent. :wink:

    It's about the only one I managed to hold the camera still long enough not to be a blur (I didn't have the handy-dandy tripod that Zz had)...still got someone's big head in the way. :grumpy:

    Thank you :smile: I also have a picture where you can see more windows, but the exposure is not as nice as this one. The exposure time was quite long, so I had to hold my breath and keep the camera steady on the window frame.
