NOVEMBER 1ST - Submissions closed, vote for your favorite!
Hi everyone! Welcome to October's Assignment!
The theme for this month is "Black", as suggested by popo who won the August 2010 competition. Be sure to read the whole post for the rules.
In popo's own words:
"After a little thought, the theme I have chosen is... Black
. As photography is about the capture of light, the relative lack of it in black makes it a bit more interesting. Please note black doesn't have to be taken too literally. If you look at black things, often they're not perfectly black. That's ok.
I'll leave PP options open, but any significant "black" point of interest should be a natural part of the scene and not a result of PP. This is especially the case if you wish to do a black and white photo."
1: You can only submit one image and it MUST be taken during October 2010. Photos taken earlier will be disqualified!
2: All images submitted must be no more than 500 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:
Lens and focal length:
Submissions will close at midnight GMT on 31st October 2010. 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 October 2010 Comments and Questions thread
Thanks and good luck!
