January 2014 Assignment - Submissions

Postby Bjorn van Sinttruije » Wed Jan 01, 2014 10:34 pm

Hi folks, and welcome to January's assignment. This month's theme was suggested by kimchi: candid (street) portrait. I'll note that the street part is strictly optional, I know not everyone feels comfortable taking street photos.
In case you haven't joined our community but would like to showcase your work then why not Register now. It's free and we'd love to see what you can do.

Prize
The winner will receive a free copy of our Wildlife Photography eBook, a downloadable PDF worth $9.97 which you can read on computers, laptops, tablets,
iPads, phones, or anything which can open a standard PDF file! You'll find more details here.

Rules
1. You can only submit one picture, and it should be no longer than 1024 pixels on it's longest side.
2. The picture must be taken in 2014 or during the last six months of 2013.
3. Exercise good judgement about what is appropriate on our forum (see our Forum Rules for more information).
4. Please include a sentence or two describing your picture or the process of taking it, and share some technical info such as the camera, lens, settings and processing.
5. If you have any questions, comments or pictures older than six months, please post them in the Comments and Questions thread.
6. Submissions will close at midnight GMT on January 31st 2014, after which you can vote for your favorite entry. Good luck!

Opted to stay inside for this month's entry, so it's not a street portrait. It is completely candid though. Taken in a dimly lit restaurant on a night out with friends.
