***29th Edition of the SHOW and TELL Competition

Post Mon Dec 04, 2006 6:22 pm

Hello pBasers all.

I too feel fortunate to have won the the 28th competion since there were so many excellent entries.

Here is the Competition #29 topic:


Show me compostions where dramatic lighting really makes a strong statement in your submitted photographs. This can include directional lighting from a window or a flash; strong, intense lighting; or even soft or low lighting. I will be particularly looking for originality in response to the theme--So be creative. See my illustrative examples below.

Here is a new request. To help me judge, I would like to view images in the original size. So please, please provide a direct link to the gallery image. Place the link directly below each photo submitted. Again, see the examples below.

In this example just the light from a cell phone can be dramatic.

Here the car tunnel wall lights and a flash combine to produce a dramatic image.

Good luck to all the participants.

Bill Warren

The competition will start from now and will last through Sunday, the 10th of December 2006. I'll try to post the winners on this date and not later than Monday morning.
