Offical Photo Challenge #11 long/short Due 05/23/08

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.


The topic for this contest is long/short. This is somewhat up to your interpretation but examples I would give are:
  • Use of depth of field where there is a distinct sense of near and far using focus.
  • Use of fast/slow shutter speed to stop or accentuate motion.
  • Other creative uses of the concept long/short. If the example is not obvious then an explanation of your interpretation would be helpful.

I'm not looking for anything in particular. I am interested in the most creative and or skillful interpretation of long/short. I don't care if your interpretation is more technical use of equipment or more artistic expression.

I'll be looking for something that makes me think "That is really neat!" Those with snapshot cameras will probably have to rely on very creative uses of photography since they will not have the control over focus, depth of field, and shutter speed but are not excluded from participating.

In the case of close calls, tricky uses of lighting or camera techniques or unusual but interesting subject matter will help make the decision, especially if you explain your techniques for others to try.

Ultimately these contests will be more interesting if others can learn techniques, especially lesser used artistic techniques.

Good luck! Let's see what you got!

I don't know without spending a lot of time looking if I have any that I would consider prize-winning and was hoping for some creative attempts. Here's a few more examples:

Long or short exposure (shutter speed) that illustrate motion effects (e.g. stop action, motion blur, etc.) In other words make fast things look slow or fast, or slow moving things appear to be moving fast (water effects).

Narrow depth of field that accentuates a portion of the picture with the rest out of focus, especially where it appears things disappear into the distance or close-up appear more close.

Creative use of wide-angle or fish-eye lenses may also be accepted if the photo illustrates the sense of near and far distance.

Put another way, long and short can mean long and short time or exposure shots, or long and short distance shots, or any other interpretation of the concepts of long and short.

If there's still confusion I can post one or two examples but I'd rather not limit the ideas with my own.

This is a pretty wide-open description on purpose. Just think about showing exaggerated time or distance in a still photo and that's what I'm looking for.

EDIT: New submission. Took this at Wrigley Field last week and just relaized it might be a good entry for this; it's a different 'twist' on the long/short theme.

Nikon D40 w 70/300 @ 300mm


I'll leave the old one in for heck of it.

You're all actually in the ballpark of what I'm looking for. As the judge I don't want to suggest anything, but feel free to give each other advise. You're on the right track!

I shot these two last week in Mexico. I like both of them the best. On the second one I moved the camera up while the shutter was open to have the ghost effect.
Data: first shot 1/1.6 sec. F4.3
second shot 1/2 sec. F4.3
both shot with a Cannon DSC-T10
