Challenge #24 GHOSTS is now open
« on: March 02, 2009, 11:52:48 AM »
Challenge #24 - March 2009 - "Ghosts"  is now open!



The Theme for this challenge is "Ghosts"



Examples of suitably apropriate shots can be seen here.



The idea is to use long exposures to include ghostly apperisions in your work. The ghosts them selves should be realized in camera rather than in post, so points may be knocked off for relying too much on post processing (exceptions may be made but only for outstanding images). The ghosts don't necessarily have to be human but anything that gives that ghostly feel, the neighbours cat or a posessed bulldozer may do just as well.

A maximum of 4 entries per forum member are allowed and should be posted in this thread.

Maximum image size is 800 pixels on the longer side, and 200 KB in size - entries larger than this will not be considered for short-listing (contributors will be asked to re-post).

Entries close at 10.00 pm on March 31st CET

Including EXIF info (shutter speed, aperture, focal length, camera model, lens, etc) is not mandatory but is encouraged and welcomed.

Please note the standard challenge rules and posting guidelines.

Please remember there can be no comments on people's submissions for the challenges (to keep the voting fair). Comments on submissions will be deleted without discussion.

National Portrait Galley, London


18mm, f8, 25 sec. ISO100

Edit: I forgot to put in copyright info. I realise this means that strictly speaking, the image is being changed, i.e. against the rules. If that is the case I withdraw my previous entry and re-submit this one.

Conquering my fear of spiders...


This image is NOT "photoshopped" (would have been much easier though ;)) but created in camera: I first took a picture of the shed, then printed it 5 by 7 inches. After that I put the spider on top of the print and re-photographed it once more. Finally I adjusted levels and so on in PS and converted it into a black and white negative.
