Hi everyone! Welcome to February's Assignment!

The theme for this month is "The power of music", as suggested by EvanK who won the December 2012
competition. Be sure to read the whole post for the rules.

In Evan's own words:
    "After much deliberation, I've decided the theme for February's On Assignment to be "The Power of Music". No matter what genres or artists we listen to, there's no denying that music plays a significant role in all of our day to day lives, and I'd like this month's theme to focus on how you or somebody else's life can be influenced, changed or affected by it.

    Interpret this "influence" as you'd like, and I won't put any restrictions on post processing either (but please do us all a favour and stay away from any super overdone HDR). Keep those creative juices flowing!"



The rules!

1: You can only submit one image and it MUST be taken during February 2013. Photos taken earlier will be disqualified!

2: All images submitted must be no more than 1024 pixels on their longest side, although you can include a link to a
full resolution version if you like. Flickr users must link back to the original version to comply with its latest rules.

As always, please exercise good judgement on what is suitable for the forum. Keep it clean and family-friendly or it'll
be removed. See the Forum Rules for guides.

Please include a sentence or two with your photo describing what you were trying to achieve and if there were any
particular challenges in doing so like, for example, any special exposure or lighting setup.

We're all enthusiasts here, so it's also great to see what equipment you used and the settings too. So please also
include the following:

Camera Model:
Lens and focal length:
Aperture:
Shutter Speed:
Sensitivity:
Post processing:


Submissions will close at midnight GMT on February 28th 2013. The final poll will follow.

Please remember this thread is for submissions only. If you'd like to comment on any of the submissions or ask any
questions, please do so in the February 2013 Comments and Questions thread!

Thanks and good luck!

- Bjorn

All right, the theme is up, time to go out and shoot! Or stay indoors, depending on your idea of course. :wink:

I guess it was too difficult for most of us to capture the power of music in a photograph, so props to the gents above for posting their submissions. It feels wrong closing submissions with only two entries, but the month is over, so I will. Let's make sure March's assignment gets more entries!!

Time to vote!
