For this month competition, If this topic wasn't proposed before, I propose "Darkness".

This can be tricky, I don't really know how to make pictures in the night or when there no enough light, everytime there is too much noise going along.
Also please share your tips....

Nice theme! A different topic and can be innovative.

I'm thinking of just pop in to an Apple Store and take a pic......

Hmmm... Here is so much darkness, maybe too much... Only problem is, how to catch even part of it...

I shot an entire scene.of my first movie.with the lens cap on. The darkness.captured there nearly swallowed my young soul. That was the best scene by far of my five minute silent horror flick!

Laying aside tofhe metaphysical aspects, even the literal catching darkness with one of my cameraphones will.sure be a trick. All dark would just look black or noisy black. Think I'm.gonna need to try for some chiaroscuro for this one. But it's the challenges that inspire our creativity they say...

Big applauses to This!

When i read this, i took a long breath and put my pipe down...

I knew now it is time to take a picture of darkness...

And here it is. - No... No fish or reflection, bird or freedom. Just Darkness...

Still, there is the One sparkling star, which is trying to interferes darkness... "Arcturus..."




Obviously taken by me and My Precious (N9)

[edit]foolish typos, there maybe more...[/edit]

[edit2]Not for competition but aeroplane just landed... [/edit2]

I actually took this one on the 28th, but I could take essentially the same picture now so I'm posting it anyway. It's really just a picture of some grapes at night with the camera focussing right next to the spotlight, but I love how it turned out, and it works astonishingly well as an ambience on the Jolla phone, with which I took the picture.

I would let it slip through but the rules say the photo must be taken this month so perhaps leave it to the popular vote?

What is that pattern of blue dots in the middle?

I think that this topic is easy enough for Dave999 to participate since he's from the dark side.

I think it's some sort of lens reflection from the spotlight.

Haha, I didn't really mean to participate, just share a nice picture in a fitting thread (that said, it was taken after last month's contest was over, as far as I understand). Is there a thread for 'pictures that look good as ambiences on Sailfish'?

I see.

Re participation, I think the idea is that one should not submit photos taken before the theme was announced. At least that's the guideline I use for my own submissions.
