*** MiniChallenge 633: City Lights *** and Winners
1

Please post images of lights in the city. They can be street lights, night market lights, etc., anything human made. The "city" can be your home town.

This MC will end Sunday June, 14, 2020 at 9PM EST

Sample images to follow.

Challenge Rules:

The host gives you a topic and you post up to three images that fit. Remember, it's all about fun, sharing, and learning. Any picture you have taken in person is eligible, regardless of time taken, camera or post-processing used. The host chooses the winners and honorable mentions and posts those in a new thread. The host's decision is final. 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 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, please. It is best to embed an image in its post rather than linking to somewhere else. 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. Try to preserve the EXIF please, so we can see which camera, lens, and settings were used.

Comment Posting Guidelines:

Feel free to post comments on the images or ask for comments. Don't hesitate to click on the green "Like" thumb on the top right of the post, so we know which images were most popular. The host can make up his or her own mind without being influenced by that.

I don't know if qualifies but this is an old picture from 2005 where a brand new highway interchange (at the time) imn Montreal got flooded following torrential rain. Seems like there was a flaw in the draining system and it took years to fix.

This picture was taken with my old S1 IS and was very noisy. Processed it again this morning with Lightroom and DeNoise and it looks great!

Highway flooded in Montreal (with some abandoned cars).

There is always something to shoot/snap, you just have to know how to do it and have the right gear.

There are lights, there is a city, so it qualifies.

A day and a half left!
