friiskiwi: This is confusing, do we have an object (other than the candle) in the photo or not? ( 5 years and 2070 days ago )
xogx2002: I'm taking this as the candle can be the only source of light. ( 5 years and 2070 days ago )
Momof4boyoboys: Not is not exactly as I wrote it...I did say "photo a scene or object using just candlelight"....but then it says up there that no other objects can be present?....can you clarify mods please? Thanks ( 5 years and 2070 days ago )
friiskiwi: MODS, could we please have a clarification, Is this contest for a candle photo or something lit by a candle??? ( 5 years and 2069 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Upon thinking this over (I'm just as confused be the contradictory description as everyone else...LOL) I do believe that the ORIGINAL intention and spirit of the contest was to photograph an object using only candlelight...Therefore, another object would have to be present, otherwise, this would be just a "Candles" contest. We will allow other items into the photograph as long as they are lit ONLY by candlelight... ( 5 years and 2069 days ago )
karaflazz: humans are allowed? ( 5 years and 2069 days ago )
Contest Moderator: The guidelines say Objects or Scene...we will keep this contest to objects, not people... ( 5 years and 2069 days ago )
karaflazz: OK ( 5 years and 2069 days ago )
friiskiwi: Thanks ( 5 years and 2069 days ago )
friiskiwi: There are a lot of lovely shots of candles, without a lit object. Are they on theme? ( 5 years and 2069 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Candle holders are seen as a part of the candle and do not count as the extra object which is needed in the shot. ( 5 years and 2064 days ago )
ibmaxed: Any hint of being creative and the entry is removed...mmmm ( 5 years and 2063 days ago )
