Photography Challenge 93: Street Photography at Night Montage

This fortnight's theme was Street Photography at Night.

We were looking for entries that used creative camera techniques to capture an interesting scene or story on the streets at night. Our photography sessions across the country looked at long exposures, light trails and how to use the available light in an effective way.

Head over to the Photoh Facebook page to see all of the competition entries here.

Judging is now only done for first and second place winners only. Any feedback on images can be sought in our Facebook groups during Critique Me Tuesday, both before and after the competitions. Critique Me Tuesday is now open between 10am-10pm every Tuesday in the city Facebook groups.

The finalists this fortnight are:

Dallian Macadam, Adelaide

The winner this fortnight is...John Low from Sydney! Congratulations John! You have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher!
The first things that stood out to us with John's photo are the brilliant pops of colour bursting out from different areas of the frame. It can be tricky to work with multiple sources of artificial light, but John's exposure and white balance is spot on. You are then shown how busy the location is by his use of long exposure to blur the crowds walking through the composition. The exposure was just long enough for us to catch glimpses of each individual, but to reduce them to interesting outlines rather than full of distracting detail.

And in second place we have...Dallian Macadam from Adelaide, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher!
Dallian's shot is a riot of colour! The composition plays with leading lines and symmetry, and draws your attention right from the foreground to the background as the lights disappear into the horizon. Fantastic amount of sharp detail - we particularly like how you can 'spy' on the people waiting at the stop in the foreground as the illuminated vehicles whizz past.

The theme for next fortnight is Black&White Photography
Time to take things back to basics and use black&white photography to look at the world around you in a new way.

We'll be looking for photographs that have a well-balanced exposure, and interesting tones and contrast that work well in black&white. Experiment with light and shadow to see what works when you remove all colour.
