    For this challenge, I'd like to get back to one of the most important basics of photography: Light. This challenge will thus be titled:

    The Beauty of Light!

    My goal for this challenge is to have the entries clearly show how it was light that made the picture... not composition, not the lens of the camera, but the light. With that in mind, I would prefer that these submissions make use of natural light, but I don't want t necessarily limit it to that, especially when there are many talented studio photographers here. The main idea is to make sure that the light is very evidently contributing to the picture.

    I realize this might be a tougher theme, but I'm eager to see who is up to the challenge. This is about becoming better photographers, after all. Make the pictures beautiful and artistic, but above all, have fun! :smile:

    Now for the boring stuff:
    Submissions will begin Tuesday, September 23rd 00:01am UTC/GMT
    Submissions will close on Tuesday, October 7th 11:59pm UTC/GMT

    The time can be checked on this link:
    http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_UTC.aspx



    The challenge rules are as follows:

    NIKON CAFE CHALLENGE BASIC RULES

    1. Every participant is allowed one picture per challenge.

    2. The picture has to be taken between the submission start and end date.This is to make it a "Challenge" and not just another "Best
    Picture Contest"

    3. The posted picture must remain unaltered, once posted.
    But the text of the participation may be edited/changed, as often as
    necessary (for possible exceptions contact the Challenge Leader)!

    4. Pictures may be processed/edited and worked on, in post production
    before submitting them, but the main picture/content must have been
    taken during the submission dates.

    5. Somewhat controversial pictures are permitted, but please use your
    judgment and keep it within reason. ( Note that this community should
    remain suitable for all age groups )

    6. If there are any questions or obscurities the Challenge Leader is the
    person to appeal and to decide.

    7. The actual Challenge Leader has the freedom to alter the rules,
    if reasonable (except Rule 5 perhaps). But he/she has to make sure the rules
    are clearly stated and applied to all submissions.

    8. Please try to keep the identity of the photographer/participant hidden
    (as long as the challenge is running, and voting isn't finished)
    So don't include the name or post the picture anywhere else on the cafe for the duration of the challenge! Don't use pictures, that have already been shown/posted in the cafe forums.

    Not daylight, but I thought this scene is a really interesting study of how a place can defined by artificial light.
