Official Photo Contest #16 - Independance Day

Official Photo Contest #16 - Independence Day

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

Official Photo Contest #16 Topic: Subject Matter: Independence Day

Considering the holiday weekend, I think everyone should have something to contribute. I intially was going to go with just fireworks photos, but I decided to expand the topic to anything patriotic
or related to the July 4th festivities.
Due Date: 7.10.08 - Winner announced on the 11th

and to give you an idea of the turnout (not included in contest). It was extra crowded because Oakland wasn't having a fireworks display due to excessive dryness of vegetation.

Panoramic I took of the skyline 7/3/08 from Adler...The CNA building had it's lights on in a flag shape, I thought it was cool. I wish it would have come out better, but this is the best my shaky hands could do without a tripod.

Here's your winner: Audiofyl



And runner-up: SaqC1


I like the contrast in this photo, especially in the non-white stars.

I thought for sure there'd be a huge turnout on this thread; guess everyone was to drunk last weekend to remember their cameras
