    Nikon Cafe Challenge #39
    It's my pleasure to bring you the 39th Nikon Cafe Challenge and I hope you will enjoy it.

    The theme for this challenge is:


    Credit is due to my fellow challenge host Alex from Holland both for hosting a great challenge and for inspiring this challenge. Since we just explored our daily lives, it seems fitting to now take a look at daylights counterpart, night.

    As with the last challenge, feel free to get creative. It could be as simple as a shot you take at night, a starry sky or the local night life.

    The Challenge will start now and end on Saturday the 16th of June 2007 at 18.00hrs utc/gmt.

    To avoid a time discussion please see the below link!


    Good luck with the challenge everyone. I'm excited to see what people come up with.


    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.
    Please post to this thread or PM me with questions you may have.


    Further Guidelines and Suggestions for Participation:

    - Please feel free to give your picture a title, and even explain it a little!

    - When posting the submission it is might be welcomed, to share some
    Information about the shot. This could be done by posting the EXIF-data or
    just sharing the equipment used or the exposure. For example:

    Shot_on_Date, Focal_Length, Aperture, Shutter_Speed, ISO, Priority,
    Metering, Compensation, Flash

    - Try to keep the submission at 965 pixels (extreme formats,
    like panoramas, may require more). Just keep in mind the cafe server resizes
    pictures larger than 965 pixels and provides a link to the original size.

    - To save even more bandwidth, it might be reasonable to adjust the
    compression (while saving it as jpg), to keep the file size under 500kb
    (jpg-compression: 60%-80% may be optimal for most pictures).
    This should keep loading times to a minimum.​

    Yes, it is. Sorry for the delay, one of the mods is helping me track down one of the winners as their photo no longer displays. I'll have the results thread up today with or without it.
