    Thanks to waltny (Tim) for hosting Challenge #61.


    Challenge #62 topic: Outdoor black and white night images.


    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

    Night or nighttime is the period of time when the sun is below the horizon. The opposite of night is day (or "daytime" to distinguish it from "day" as used for a 24-hour period). Time of day varies based on factors such as season, latitude, longitude and timezone.

    Moonlight, light painting or.....??? Looking forward to seeing your creative images.


    Basic Challenge Rules apply:

    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.

    The shooting starts now and ends 2359 GMT 19 April 2009.

    Will shots at dusk count? the sun will have already set but there is some ambient light left.
     
  8. I should think so, for it is defined above as "sun below the horizon." :smile:

    If the sun is below the horizon the shot is eligible for this challenge.
