« on: July 01, 2009, 09:31:10 PM »
Now Open ! challenge #28. The Challenge for July 2009 is 'Backlit / Silhouette's'

The theme Backlit / Silhouette means that the image must be lit predominantly from behind, though interpretation is always welcome.
The image can be of people, buildings, flowers, in fact almost everything.
So get your thinking caps on and start submitting.

If you have any queries or require clarification on this challenge, please PM me Rob

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 8.00 pm (ish) on July 31st 2009 (UK Time)

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.

And Finally
Good Luck

Often while traveling with a camera we arrive just as the sun slips over the horizon of a moment, too late to expose film, only time enough to expose our hearts.  ~Minor White

Gear - Sony Alpha77 /Minolta 300mm f4 /Tamron XR DiII SP 17-50mm f2.8 / Minolta 28-80mm/Tamron Di 90mm macro . And various slaves/lights and studio stuff.
