Dramatic Light: Back Lighting, Rim Lighting
Aug 15, 2009

Questions, comments and complaints regarding this challenge. If you are unfamilar with back lighting and rim lighting, post a question or a sample.

This is a difficult challenge with a high entry barrier. I disqualify a lot of images, even really good ones if they don't meet the criteria. I do not disqualify images because they're "not good enough" but because they do not meet the technical requirements. The quality, or appeal, of the image is up to the voters next week.

Read up on back lighting and rim lighting so you understand how the technique works and how it is achieved. Read the rules and examine the sample images so you get a feel for the requirements. The objective is to enter an outstanding back-lit image, not figure out how to manipulate the rules.

If you feel your image was mistakenly disqualified, state your case logically. If your argument is compelling, your image can be readmitted. Recognize that there is always a gray area of subjectivity and the host makes the final determination.

Being disqualified is always an opportunity for learning ... if you choose that route. You have the opportunity to enter a better photo (unlike the final voting procedure where you take your chances with a fickle audience).
