Contest goal:

Most photography discussions are about how the light in photos looks, but never about how the actual light source looks. In this contest, we're giving attention to the objects that provide us the light. In other words, capture an actual light source on photo...
e.g A cameraflash, a lightbulb, a candle,... there can only be one visible lightsource in the photo and it has to be turned on.


Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

Govindrathod: Can sun be considered as a light source for this contest? ( 5 years and 2482 days ago )
Artifakts: "we're giving attention to the objects that provide us the light" ... is the sun an object ? ( 5 years and 2482 days ago )
Lodd: No suns please that would only end up in broken cameras. ( 5 years and 2482 days ago )
Contest Moderator: I think, for safety of the camera, we will consider the sun as a 'no go'...........besides, we will nd up with so many shots of the sun, it will end up as a 'let's photograph the sun' contest....so, no suns!! ( 5 years and 2482 days ago )
FallingHorse: It really sucks that the rules get changed after people sumit to a contest. It sshould all be outlined in the Goals from the get go ( 5 years and 2482 days ago )
UncleJimmy: I agree...the guidelines say nothing about the sun and it's also a light source...should have been stated from the very begining...before entries were submitted ( 5 years and 2482 days ago )
UncleJimmy: If entries are removed AFTER you change the rules, we should be allowed to re-submit...just my opion, but that would be closer to being fair about the situation ( 5 years and 2482 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Very eclectic bunch of entries so far, that's for sure. ( 5 years and 2480 days ago )
kitkat671: would a moon be considered a light source? it doesn't harm the camera. :P ( 5 years and 2479 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I don't see why it wouldn't, so long as it's the main focus, kitkat ( 5 years and 2479 days ago )
Lodd: Just so you know the moon is illuminated by the sun and not a real lightsource... ( 5 years and 2479 days ago )
kitkat671: true... so i guess not. ( 5 years and 2478 days ago )
wiseman: the moon is a light source, havent u ever reflected light with a poster board or reflecter to direct light where you wanted it, so YES the moon is a light source. ( 5 years and 2477 days ago )
Contest Moderator: agreed, the moon is a light source in this sense........ ( 5 years and 2477 days ago )
hannahspannah: this may sound like a stupid question but how do I enter a photograph? ( 5 years and 2474 days ago )
Ankonian: @ hannah its too late to submit a photo. This period is 'voting only' and entries can no longer be submitted. ( 5 years and 2473 days ago )
