## Mini Challenge - Darkness
3

Share your photos taken after the sun goes down, before the sun comes up, or from a dark place.

Some examples:

Basel

Stars, Structure

Montreal

Glass, Reflections, La Defense

Light and Dark

Moon, Sailboats

Camel's Hump, Lights

Cupola, Stars

Twilight

Castaway

Column, Snow, Lights

Milky Way @ the Farm Barn

Boilerplate Rules

The host gives you a topic and you post up to three images that fit. Any picture you have taken is eligible regardless of time taken or camera.

The host chooses the winners and honorable mentions. The host's decision is final. Remember, it's all about fun, sharing, and learning. The winner of this challenge then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner of that one, and so on it goes. The winner of this challenge will have 48 hours to post the next challenge. If that doesn't happen, 2nd place will have 24 hours to do you so, then it's up to 3rd place.

Submission Posting Guidelines

Post each one of your three submissions in its own reply to this post. Give each post a unique Subject, like, "HCB - Derriere la Gare Saint-Lazare", "HCB - Boy With Wine Bottles", and "HCB - Mexican Ladies". It's best to embed an image in it's post rather than linking to somewhere else (you'll get more views that way).

If you want people to give you constructive comments and criticism, ask for C&C.

Feel free to post photos "for exhibition only" if you want to share more than three or won't be available to host the next challenge, just let us know that in your posts.

Try to post photos that share the EXIF information - its always interesting to see how people achieve their work, especially as the light drops!

Comment Posting Guidelines

Feel free to post comments on the images. If you want to save bandwidth, remove the image from your reply so you just post text. If you would give someone else's submission a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, click on the green "Like?" thumb on the top right of the post, so we know which images were most popular. The host will make up their own mind Feel free to post comments on the images. If you want to save bandwidth, remove the image from your reply so you just post text.

The host will make up their own mind which images best fit their topic without being influenced by that.

Mississippi River Push Boat, taken hand held after it was too dark to see and count the number of unlit barges it was pushing. Take a look at the EXIF numbers!  The G3X is a superlative camera!!

After hours in town

I don't shoot a lot at night, but my G7XII with its 1.8 lens is something I've begun playing with a bit.

Night Sky

First night sky shot ever, using the G7XII.  I was frankly surprised to see any stars at all as I was shooting into a very black sky and couldn't see anything at all.  This little camera might be more versatile than I had originally thought!
