Weekly Challenge #567 - Lights
Posted By: atupdate, 01-12-2022, 02:18 PM

We all know how important lighting is for a good photo but how about lights being part of the main subject? This change needs a light source as part of the subject.

The contest will close on Wednesday, 19th January 2022 midnight of your time zone.

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 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.


Good luck to everyone.

Apart from “the big light in the sky” I do not have many that I think would be suitable. I will go with this 100% legit pirate ship in the harbor of Port el Kantaoui.

Taken on my drive home from work. I didn't have much time to set up for this one, and no second chances either.

Lights...yes, nice one. And one of the toughest , when they're on... But I got lucky. This one is on and low. Perfect, I would say.

A string of small lights, surprising how illuminated it made this scene.

In estate, ogni sera, affacciandomi dal mio balcone ecco la bellissima visuale che mi regala il tramonto.

Isn't there a saying that goes "you better light a couple of candles or spend the night cursing the darkness?"

I see most of the EXIF data has been eaten; 1 second exposure at ISO 1600 and f5.6, taken with a K-30 and an SMC A-50 f1.4.
