POTN G-series Speed Challenge #646 - Light and Dark

Images (B&W or colour) that show a good contrast between subjects or parts of the scene that are lit and unlit, or gloomy and bright. Scope for lots of entries, I hope.

***************
RESULTS

Thanks very much to the four that entered, although I had hoped for more because when this same subject ran 12 years ago it got 15 entries!

Some comments:

M-Six - "Inside looking out": The "dreaming spires" of Oxford U.? Nice example of "light and dark".

Trumper - "Icy pond": Intriguing shot that had me straining to work out what the barely visible rectangles are among what I assume are trees. Cabin windows? It's REALLY black - is this more or less SOOC or did you darken it in a major way by processing?

Spoco57- "Misty Bridge": A lovely shot, taken in conditions (heavy rain?) that would have many photographers sheltering rather than shooting.

JimAskew - "Warbird Graveyard": Like both the composition and exposure, although the lighting isn't as contrasty as what I had in mind for the challenge. It's sad, thinking of what all these old aircraft must have seen and done in their time in the air.

WINNERS

All four deserve a spot on the podium, so...

#1 - Spoco for his misty bridge
#2 - Trumper for his black and moody mystery
#3 - Tied: M_Six for Oxford and Jim for his graveyard.

All yours, Spoco!

Hahaha....oh no! Thanks Teekay! I took this shot last weekend on a bike trip down the Allegheny River Trail. That's the bridge that carries I-80 over the Allegheny near Emlenton PA. The weather was beautiful, but there was a thick mist along the river at daybreak and I just grabbed the shot, which happened to fit the topic, by chance. The mist was gone within 20 minutes.

Congrats to all. I really liked that warbird graveyard photo of Jim's. I'd love to explore that place!

Thanks for the challenge, Teekay, and the chance to redeem myself after sticking my foot in it, so to speak, last time. I'll try to do better with topic choice this go-round.

Steve

Well done all. Love the Misty Bridge, Spoco. Great shot.

Yes, teekay, Oxford. Love that town.

Jim, I used to be an aeroscout on an OH-58, which is the second bird from the left (peeking out from behind that early Vietnam era chopper). Sad to see them wasting away like this.

Well done all! Love Steve's Misty Bridge photo. This was a fun challenge teekay:-)

I made my photo at the Russell Military Museum located on I-94 at the Illinois-Wisconsin border. We took the grandkids there and had a grand time. The musem's "boneyard" has all types of old military aircraft to include fixed wing and helicopters. It is full of photo ops.

I was in a CH-34 Choctaw in Germany in 1967 that crashed due to a lightening strike. We were down overnight near the North Sea. Fortunately no one was hurt but my wife was terrified because we were reported missing for over 12 hours. We finally got word back to our unit that we were ok early the next morning.

In Vietnam I flew in Hueys in and around the Cam Rahn Bay Area on support missions. The company I commanded had detachments scattered all around the area. I was not a pilot but I sure got in lots of air time.

Glad you stopped for the shot and didn't get wet. Sure looked like it was raining. When I looked closely at the water, I thought all those little specks and circles had to be the result of raindrops.

Just for fun I took the liberty of snipping part of your shot and played with it in LR. Looks like the sign says more than "No trespassing" and there's definitely a house hiding behind the trees.

New challenge up. Sorry it took so long.

Teekay, there was a surprisingly swift current in the river at this point and even though the morning was as still as it could be, the surface was stirred by the movement, which may be why it appears to be raining.

Have fun with the new challenge.

Steve
