While on vacation I tried to look for opportunities that would say "power of light". On the way back from a whale watch, I saw this across the water of the atlantic ocean, and I thought it fit the bill pretty well.

Lake of Fire

The light of the setting sun transforms the lake as these fishermen return home with wood for the night's fire. It seems as if they could simply dip it into the water to set it ablaze.

The "power of light"! A phantastic assigment, thank you!
Let me prove to you that this is THE most important factor in creating images with a camera...

The following image does not depent on the camera-body nor the sensor, not the processor nor the metering or the auto-focus system of your gear. Nor does it rely on a sharp lens, a working image stabilization, nano-coating and what have you. And there's no postprocessing!
The LIGHT is the only thing that counted, when I created this:

Image

"LIGHT is not everything, LIGHT is the only thing!"

Technical ingredients: 400mm, f/32, 0.8sec, ISO200, 10m distance, aperture priority auto-exposure +2EV, image style set to brillant, +3 contrast, +1 saturation, active D-Lighting off, no flash, auto WB, late afternoon sun, red geranium, uncontrollable shake

this is my entry, last June 21 and 22 typhoon "Frank" (international name Fengshen) hit The Philippines, killing hundreds of people and left most part of Metro Manila in flood with no power.

I was in the province of Rizal, just an hours away from Manila, I woke up 6am to find that the power is out. So I took my Kodak C875 and took this shot

Shutter priority set to 1/60, ISO 200

Honestly, when I suggested this idea in the On Assignment thread, I never thought it would get picked or that I'd win to pick it. I was inspired by a NG article photography by none other than THE Joe McNally, who climbed to the top of the Empire state buildings antenna and shot really wide down. I had thought I wouldn't even submit this month, but my town being so dumb always does independence day (july 4) fireworks a few days before. I got the chance to shoot them, so heres my favorite shot from the night.

Sorry guys if this is too much of a play on the word light.
I title this picture, THE POWER OF LIGHT-ness.
This is part of my other hobby, model airplanes and this model is twenty kilos plus but two and a half metres wide. Without it's LIGHT build it could not hover (prop hang). This was a professional pilot not myself.
taken in raw
focal length 300mm
f5.6 1/400s
+2.0EV
iso 200
image set to vivid
no PP what so ever
good luck everyone
regards John :)
