Default Photography Contest | 19

Entries: April 18- April 24
Voting: April 25 - May 1




Submissions ends 11:00PM EST


The winner of this round of the contest will then pick a new category/theme for the next contest via a private message I will send.

If the winner does not contact me with a category by 10:00pm EST the next day then I will choose one to post up. That way we can be sure to keep the contest in order and moving. Remember I will send you a Private Message to see which theme you would like to use so check your inbox!


The winner will be picked by Poll voting. You will choose the picture you like most by a poll posted above the thread.

RULES AND REGULATIONS:

Please submit linked photos (with [img] tags from photobucket, tinypic, facebook etc.) NO LARGER than 800x600.

I would prefer submissions to not be posted as thumbnails. This makes it difficult for me to post the pictures for the contest in the same way attached photos or too large a photo does.

Attached photos will NOT be accepted as they cannot be linked to for the voting thread. There will be no exceptions.

-The photo's MUST be your own work. They must have been taken by you at some point in your life. They can be as old or as new as you want, as long as they belong to you.

-Photoshopping will be allowed. With that being said, by photoshopping I mean MINOR color/contrast tweaks and cropping. It will be hard to police this, so we have to leave it open. It will be fairly obvious though if you do some major photoshopping, so please leave it to just minor tweaking.

-Your photo MUST fall within the category of that weeks contest. Any random or out of place entries will be deleted.

-One entry per member. If you submit multiple pics I will request you to choose which to use. If you don't give me a response, I will choose.

A reminder that your entry does not have to contain your vehicles. This contest is to see some other photography other then our trucks which we see on a daily basis.

After a tie last week, I had both winners send me a theme, I then used a randomizer to pick the winner.

This week's theme will be: Long Exposure
Thanks to Swartlkk!


Night picture with no flash and a steady hand or tripod

>=4 second exposure rate
- if you cannot adjust use manual mode with firework setting and (or) EV (-)2
- No Flash.

As stated before, Long Exposure pictures are typically taken in low light conditions.
I am not sure about other camera makes, but on many Canon Point and Shoots, if you flip to the "SCN" setting or similar mode, you can change the function to long shutter, then adjust the length accordingly.

Yup, actually just water down the lawn first so it doesnt catch the grass on fire and spread, as we are bailing water of buckets out from the swimming pool to put the fire out an ember sparked the field behind the house on fire to about 50 feet away, so made a ton of long runs back and forth as well. Was a very dry month.

The things you can do with a flashlight... This is probably the only interesting thing to come out of this set of photos... I had NO ambient lighting whatsoever that night and it's essential when you're even trying to light paint a vehicle with an LED worklight lol. It was so dark that night that when I turned the flashlight off I couldn't see where I was walking. No photoshop or flash here, and I used my entire 30sec exposure for this one.

I have some other ideas as well. You don't have to go changing it. It's a great shot!

Just took this one last Friday, it's the Draw Bridge that doubles as the snowmobile crossing over the Portage Canal in Houghton, MI.
