Weekly Challenge #386 Chiaroscuro
Posted By: StephenHampshire, 05-02-2017, 06:09 AM

Chiaroscuro is a painting technique, developed during the Renaissance, that uses strong tonal between light and dark to model three-dimensional forms, often to dramatic effect. Famously used by Rembrandt

For this week's challenge, post your pictures that use these strong tonal contrasts - could be a portrait, but could also be a dramatic landscape with features accentuated by dramatic lighting, or maybe a still life??

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Two light sources, a snooted flash for the cup and the flame itself.

Wow, what artistry. The caution and the flame are perfect together. Satire at its best ☺️
