Humans happen to use visible light naturally but now we can go beyond the usual wavelengths we appreciate, to find out more about our world and ourselves.

Sadly, works get forgotten. A good eye can bring new life if one has humor, knowledge and vision. The used pictures must be either yours, from the public domain or legal rights of usage having been obtained. Be prepared to explain image sources without being defensive or mad at the moderator. This does not diminish your art, just helps with historical provenance.

Some pictures have far more to see than what is immediately obvious. It's also a window and a library of whatever went before. Tell us this and so we'll be taken beyond the picture deep into the nature and feelings that will buttress the pictures and pull us to come back.

Continuous and Strobe Lighting. (The Sun is considered continuous!) Great ideas are really ten a penny! Technique in setting up the subject is, of course, essential. However, the ability to bring out form, texture, tonality and color is where the skill in lighting provides all the keys to engraving one's ideas on the delivered picture.

Photography as Art (4 Viewing)
Work the photographer believes might command artistic value beyond their own circle. As usual in OPF, these submissions merit critique based on intent, context and purpose. This might cover technique, composition and the like. To go out in the world, however, far more might be expected, even for things of beauty or great craft. Art criticism is harder. It requires knowledge of the arts, literature, history and esthetics. Criticism comes from study of the photograph and related works. It's an assessment of how this work might stand our culture. As Dante warned: "Abandon hope all ye who enter here!
