Official Photo Contest #7

R U L E S:- The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post ONE image (only first image by one person will be judged) that is relevant to the challenger theme. You can change your image as many times as you like before the deadline.
- The host chooses a winner *AND* runner-up after closing. The decision of the judge (the Host!) is final. The judge is *not* eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, tells everyone when the photo's must be posted by (give some reasonable amount of time like a week), runs the challenge, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person. Winner/Host, please post a reasonable topic that someone who's not a pro photographer can be a part of. Remember it's not just cool shots, but the story that can be told for some.
- If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 48 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.
- Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera it was taken with. You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera, lens and exposure info along with your photo.
- All levels welcome. If you don't have the best lens or just a plain old pocket camera but your shot tells a wonderful story then there's no reason you can't win! This is about overall photo's and their story, not just about expensive equipment.
- Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, ask for it...after all we are here to learn too and practice.
- Provide any additional information concerning your entry you want. Explaining how the shot might relate to the topic could help too.
- Winner/Host, please copy and paste these rules into the topic and thread that you post because some might start doing contests later and miss the first one.

-New Rule, no camera phone pictures. This is an artistic contest and nothing about a camera phone shows good composition or technique.


Official Photo Contest #7 Topic

This week's topic is going to be "Night Shots - always a surprising colour; the camera can see what we cannot!"

I agree with what Lonely Raven said in his last post about this giving us a chance to sharpen our skills and learn from one another. I'm still having difficulty with taking night shots, so I'm taking this as an opportunity to learn from you guys and see what kind of "night shots" you have. I can't wait to see what you guys will be posting up. Please also post the conditions and settings you used to take the shot. The weather is getting nice out, so it should be easier for us to get out there and take some cool night shots. So get out your tripods and slow down those shutter speeds and take some pics!!! Happy shooting!!!

Due Date: 4/9/2008

Here is one I enjoy, I don't know if this is what I will use.

The moon was about 3/4 full at my back. Not 100% on the specifics, but was a few seconds at f/5.6 ISO around 200 with the 12-24 lens on my D80

Awesome subject! And one subject that I've been meaning to explore more. I did a bunch of night photography when I first got my D70s two years ago, but it was all so terrible. I had all the gear in the world, but no skill. Now is a great time for me to try out some ideas!

Phil, I know there is a no camera phone rule, and the stated reason is "This is an artistic contest and nothing about a camera phone shows good composition or technique" which I completely disagree with.

I've seen this one artist who worked for years with a cheesy 2MP Sony P&S camera that took photos that would put even Trident to shame. People were in awe of his ability to capture feeling and project emotion with such a junk old camera. Because it *is* all about "framing and technique", not about the hardware. The quality of the hardware just gives you more artistic options. Much like an artistic painter with one brush for painting an exterior of a house, vs an artistic painter with a whole slew of art brushes and tools. It's still the artist that makes the art, not the hardware.

I humbly request that the "no camera phone" rule be re-thought, or at least reworded as currently I feel the "camera phone shows no composition or technique" line is bullshit. Again, because composition and technique (the art!) is in the hands and the heart, not the hardware.

I started that rule because ME personally was sick of seeing foggy out of focus pictures of random junk being entered in the contest. I have nothing against a older or lower MP camera picture. Not to mention a camera phone has no ability to change anything unlike a basic point and shoot which still lets you modify and add your touch to a picture.

I simply think there would be more participants and the chance to see something totally random/candid that you normally don't see since nobody carries around thier DSLR everywhere. I thought the whole point of these photo contests was the share photos good or bad and have fun. This is a motorcycle board, not some DSLR snob fest photog board.

Unfortunately, I agree completely with both your points.

I don't need foggy shots of someone on the toilet, but at the same time, I'm sure someone here will surprise me with a great shot that otherwise couldn't have happened.

Phil, tell ya what. I have a spare P&S camera...but I have no memory for it. I'd be happy to loan it out to you for this shoot if you have some ideas you want to tackle. I just don't have the Sony memory stick Pro crap-proprietary-BS memory handy. I've been meaning to order a stick off eBay (seems to be the cheapest place), but I doubt I'll get it here in time.

Thanks for the generous offer Eric! I have a p&s at home but I almost never have it on me when I see something I want to take a pic of. I always forget it at home as well. I know some shots may not be worth posting but I say we need to take the good with the bad. Plus, how many artists in the history of the world were scorned and ridiculed until after they died or way after? There is only one judge in these contests and the decision is final so why not let everyone participate for the sake of fun whether the picture is deemed worthy or not?

It's funny as I was thinking the same thing when re-reading the rules. Flickr has some great camera-phone pics. Not great quality 'images' but great composition can be captured with a shoebox and a pinhole.

Got a question. Does it have to be outdoors? I mean the shot I took that I like is in doors, it was night and it's a dark pic. Just wondering.

This picture is from Napa, this is where we stayed. On a vineyard. It was the most beautiful thing ever. So this is a night shot of that. I don't remember the exposure or anything like that. Had to balance the camera on top of the car.

I agree with Raven.
While I understand the reason for the rule, let's remember it's possible to take crap with a very expensive camera as well (although admittedly sometimes the good camera will make lemonade out of lemons more often than a camera phone will)

I went looking for the Rockwell article where he compared the camera phone to his 5d... Found something else.. I won't post the whole thing here as it's very long, but it's a good read.. Click the link if you are interested

http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/notcamera.htm

oh and here are some camera photos...
I think this guy would do fine in our contests.. and they are taken with a camera phone
http://www.flickr.com/photos/archang.../sets/1322389/
Appears a good subject, timing and composition is more important than what your picking it up with.

I went looking for the Rockwell article where he compared the camera phone to his 5d... Found something else.. I won't post the whole thing here as it's very long, but it's a good read.. Click the link if you are interested

Appears a good subject, timing and composition is more important than what your picking it up with.
Rules are rules. If you want them changed then wait till you win and then you can change them. I agree camera shots should be allowed but I did not make the rules
