Weekly challenge # 504 - "Night Outside"
Posted By: aaacb, 07-20-2020, 05:22 PM

This week, I'd like to see photos taken at night. This includes astrophotography (hint hint ... ), nigh city scapes, moon-lit landscapes, or anything else. The only requirement is for the image to be shot at night outside.

The challenge runs until 28 July 2020 (Tuesday)

Each week the new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

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 (DSLR) 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

I'll try to give examples:

I do not have a lot of night photos. Evening and sundowns enough, but after that not so much.
Attached my entire collection of night time photos .

I was unable to get out this week fro a new shot so I'll use a recent one. But if I get the chance I may replace this one.
