I liked the way my neighbor's security light caused tree shadows on my house.
I never expected the dramatic effect that the roof overhang caused by only allowing the moon to show the siding texture on the lower part of the house.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35
Focal length 4.8 mm
f/2.8
ISO 80
60 second exposure on starry night scene setting

I was trying to get the Seeker of a vampire look from him. Shooting with strobe high above really cast dark shadows over his eyes, Perfect for me to work with in photoshop later. So I added eyes for him to boost the dramatic look. done.

Lens and focal length: Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 @ 65mm
Aperture: f/9.0
Shutter Speed: 1/200

Fuji S9600 - 1/210 - f/3.6 - ISO 80 - EV -0.33 - 35 mm
Shot in RAW. Had in-camera contrast set to 'soft' to protect against clipping.
PP: Increased contrast again.

Earlier this month I took advantage of one of the very few sunny spells (well it was a Sunday :D) we've had amidst all the rain and snow to go cycling looking for some photo-ops to try out the Fuji S9600 I got two weeks earlier, keeping the assignment in mind. When I got to a stretch going West with enough flat surface to my right and saw my shadow cast by the very low late autumn Sun I knew I had to shoot it for the assignment. Quite tricky taking a photo while trying to stay on the narrow path and not fall off yer bike. :? The flip-up/down screen really made this shot possible. It was still quite a challenge to get a level horizon and a half decent composition. Since I liked both titles I came up with I used one as a sub-title for the other eliminating the need to choose. :)

Shot at 14:50 mid afternoon on the 13th. With the Sun only eight days away from its lowest position you can't get much longer shadows than this.

Shadow of a TreeImage

This photo was taken on my trip to Mumbai, India on Marine Drive. It was 32 degree celsius and I saw few people resting under this tree's shade.

Camera Model: Nikon D5000
Lens and focal length: Tamron 10-24 at 10mm
Aperture: F8
Shutter Speed: 1/500s and 1/4000s
Sensitivity: 400
Post processing: Exposure blending of +2 and -2 exposures. I wanted to capture the sun as round as possible. This wasn't possible without underexposing. Tweaked some color saturation as well.

Aaarrggghh. Flickr uploads aren't working right now and there's only 9 hours left in 2009. All I can offer is this much-reduced thumbnail.

Good luck everyone, and best wishes for 2010 to all.

Camera Model: Olympus E-620
Lens and focal length: 12-60mm @ 12 mm
Aperture: 7.1
Shutter Speed: 1/500

Post processing: GIMP 2.6.7 on Windows Vista
Cropped and added two "Screen" mode copies of the original layer. Added a layer mask to each of these two Screen-mode layers to block the sky and reveal the (brightened) foreground.
