Horizon Streetscape Story Rumble

24

Take your Horizon cameras out for an afternoon walk around the busiest street of your city and show us a sweeping streetscape snapshot that will make us swoon!

Credits: guanatos

We are all aware of the unparalleled capability of the Horizon cameras to produce spectacular wide panoramic images. Whether it’s a majestic view of purple mountain ranges or a calming scenery of the setting sun, we can rely on both the Horizon Kompakt and the Horizon Perfekt to render nothing but the best wanderlust-inducing shots.

But this time, instead of those exotic paradise and beaches, we want you to show us how these two powerhouses will fare with shooting the colorful city life and its streetscapes. From a newly built bus station to an almost torn down building. From rigid street signs to artsy graffiti walls. From traffic lights to store’s neon lights. From an open public park to the dark, gritty alleys. Show us what gives your bustling street its unique urban character through your Horizon snapshot.

And to make this rumble a little more exciting, we want you to share the story behind your entries through a short blog post (three to five sentences for each entry will do). Write up your story (don’t forget to include the photo) and publish it on your User Blog. Then, post the link to your blog entry on the comments section below.

The best entry and story will win a whooping 30 piggies plus a special badge to be pinned on his or her LomoHome!

Details:

  • One Grand Prize winner of 30 piggies and 5 runners-up of 10 piggies each. All winners will get a special badge in their LomoHomes.
  • Maximum of three submissions per user.
  • Don’t forget to tag your photos (film, cameras, accessories, and at least three tags). Photos without these tags will not be accepted.
  • Submissions without the blog entry will not be considered.
  • Submissions must be taken using Horizon Kompakt and Horizon Perfekt only. Please keep in mind our streetscape theme.
  • Rumble will run for three weeks.

Show us what it’s like to have the lens of the Horizon cameras sweep the scenes of your streets! Good luck everyone! We’ll be waiting for your entries!

The Horizon Kompakt makes it easy for everyone to shoot fantastic panoramic images. With fixed focus and aperture settings, all you have to do is point and shoot! Get your own Horizon Kompakt now!

The Horizon Perfekt shoots images the length of two standard frames. With full aperture and shutter settings, this premium panoramic camera gives you total control over your shots. Prepare to be blown away by the amazing Horizon Perfekt, available here.

    10 Coolest Places To Visit ... Underwater!

    Where are you headed to this summer? Where I'm from summer has ended too soon, so I'm still daydreaming of sand and seafoam. I decided to check out the archives for some cool beach-y snapshots and came across a lot of interesting underwater photos! Check out my finds after the jump; hopefully this list will inspire you to grab a Fisheye Sub or a Krab, along with your Fisheye cameras and LC-A+, for some underwater adventure.
