Fiery Tail of a Comet User Rumble

6

Up in the sky! A light trail shooting up quickly, at the blink of an eye. Our previous user rumble winner grad brings you the newest challenge - photos of the fiery tail of a comet!

Ok, so it might be a little tough. After all, comets come by so fast, and they occur very rarely, too! If you’re lucky and fast enough to capture its light trail, let’s see it! We welcome photos of light trails from unnatural sources too, brought about by a a firecracker or a random light beam … just remember to keep it relevant to the theme, mmmkay? This rumble is brought to you by our previous rumble winner, grad.

  • Prize(s): The winner gets to pick the next theme
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated
  • Upload Limit: 1 photo
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)
  • By submitting your photos to this rumble, you allow Lomography.com to use your submitted photos for promotional purposes.

    Light is Magical: A Talk With Li Hui

    Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.
