Round Robin Challenge: Night Shots

Photo by Steven Emmett

Welcome Robins This Challenge Is Now Closed! Thanks For Playing. :)

We have a new challenge to meet! My RR teammate Steven, suggested "Night Shots" a while back for us to try our hands at. I thought it would be especially nice to do this challenge, while we still have some warm summer evening to experiment with.

For this challenge, "any night shot will work fine", it doesn't have to be limited to the heavens. If you want to photograph the moon and the stars that's cool. If you want to mount a telescope on a tripod and aim for Mars... nifty! But if you want to photograph a beautiful skyline of a city after dark, we will be looking forward to that too. You can show us your skills at photographing a Luna Moth, if you have them in your area, or maybe a lot of neon signs around town. Night Blooming Jasmine could be a pretty choice as well. It's all up to you, as long as your photographs qualify as "Night Shots."

The date of the challenge will be, Saturday, August 9th, 2008. As always, you can post your entry anytime during the midnights of that day, but please don't post your entry early! I bet you wonder why we ask that of you. Well, coming soon we will have complete FAQ page for you to refer to, which should answer all your questions, but for now please follow the simple rules below, that we ask you to follow most often...

1. DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRY PRIOR TO THE CHALLENGE DATE!

Note To Blogger Folks: Blogger now has a feature which allows you to schedule a posting. If you will be out of town, and you don't want to miss a challenge, you can set up your post ahead of time and schedule it to post automatically while you are away. That way you don't have to post your entry early! If you want to use it, but are having difficulty with it, send me an email and I will be happy to help you learn how to use it.

2. PLEASE LEAVE US YOUR COMPLETE INFORMATION WHEN YOU SIGN-UP TO PLAY!

Now you guys have been playing the challenges for a long time, and you all know how your information should be left for us, but just in case this is your first time playing, here is an example of how you should leave your intention to play...

Please leave those 3 important pieces of information each time you play. It's more helpful then you know, especially when compiling the Linking List for you.

See you on Saturday, August 9th!
