    May 2014 Monthly Assignment: B & W Night Photography

    This month's Assignment consist of using your camera to capture night scenes. It can be city lights, urban landscapes, stars, but it has to be taken at low light and has to be processed to B&W.
    So you will have to concentrate on composition, point of interest and feelings.
    I hope you'll have a great time practicing and will enjoy this Assignment.

    Assignments are designed to help you grow your photography skills and creativity, and have fun doing so. Assignments are to make all of us photographers think outside the box also.


    Entries only, no comments.
    The Rules
    1. Any photo submitted for a monthly assignment must be taken during the month specified in the assignment thread and taken by you! Because not all EXIFdata can be verified, we will use the honor system.
    2. Photos must be posted to the thread in order to be considered for the challenge. Links to photos will not be considered an entry.
    3. Only three photo entries per member, for each assignment, unless otherwise indicated.
    4. Assignments will be judged solely by the panel. Individual voting via post "likes" will be incorporated into the final selection of the winning photo.
    5. Judging criteria is based on the Twelve Elements of a Merit Image, the number of "likes" received by the entries, and, the moderator's selections.
    6. The panel will select 5 shots to be displayed in the Monthly Challenge forum and homepage of the site.

    There will be no cash or prizes awarded for the Weekly Challenge, unless specifically noted by the site administrator.

    Any photo will be accepted for the assignment. Edited/straight out of the camera, it does not matter. You are left with complete freedom to do whatever genre of photography you wish to do, and your own interpretation of the assignment subject.

      I have only taken one shot with it (bedroom shot) and it seemed nice and sharp. I am looking forward to some landscape shots from it and skyscapes this coming days off.

      Is there a reason that the month of May is great for taking night shots in black and white?

      But of course there is! In 13 days I'll be here, on that stage, camera in hand for three days and three nights. Hopefully I'll manage to get a shot or two. Whether or not I win, doesn't matter.

      This is from last year before the crowd showed up.

      Good luck to everyone.
