November's Competition Subjects are:
November 2018 Rotating Subject: High Key. This topic is the Spring 2019 ACCC Rotating Subject. There is no definition nor any restriction.
As a guide, a high-key image consists primarily of light tones, without dark shadows. A photograph so composed features a diminished tonal range of primarily whites and light colors. An example might be a landscape with ground fog present. The idea is that a histogram of the image would be shifted to the right (white side) with little or no pixels on the left side (black side). The image may be either color or monochrome.
November 2018 Special Techniques: Sunrise Sunset. Any image taken at either sunrise or sunset showing the impact of the color, color saturation, and color hue in either the sky or on other objects or both. The image must be color.
