Fixed-Lens Photo Challenge #95: Sparkle
_______________

Sparkles are everywhere, just go out and find them. - or delve in your archivefor some snow and ice
_______________

Remember, if you post a photo, you may be the winner. Be prepared to host and judge a new challenge.

To submit, click the button labeled "POST TO THREAD" and put your photo title in the first line of the post, above your photo. Your camera brand and model must appear in the post. Include additional EXIF data, if you like.

Enter just one photo.

Post until Monday noon GMT, 24 August 2020.

Rules

Camera: Any fixed-lens camera, all brands and models. Cell phones are also included. No DSLRs!

Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible except photos that have won other POTN competitions.

Size: Photo must be no less than 800 pixels and no more than 1600 pixels on the longest side, with no borders.

Postprocessing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.

Photo Display: Photos must appear in this thread to be eligible.

Commenting: Please Title your photo. No commenting or descriptions on photos by anyone, including the photographer. Do not use the LIKE button until the challenge has ended. Once the winners are declared, photographers can add comments to their images and everyone is invited to discuss. The host and others may also post photos after the winners are announced.

Hosting

1. The challenge host is the winner of the last challenge.

2. As soon as possible after your win is announced, start a thread in the Competitions forum with this title: Fixed-Lens Challenge #XXX: Subject.

3. To use this format for posting your challenge, use the MQ button down in the right corner of the screen. Then hit 'Start A New Thread'.

4. Soon after noon GMT on the next Monday, the polls open for voting. Everyone (not just those who posted an image) are eligible to vote. Voting runs until noon GMT on Tuesday at which time the Host will post the results.

5. If the winner can't be contacted and doesn't respond by Wednesday noon GMT, the second-place winner will host the challenge. If both are unavailable, the third-place winner will host.

Schedule

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

New Topic: As soon as possible after winning.
Posting Starts: Right after topic is announced.
Posting Stops: Monday noon GMT.
Winners Announcement: As soon as possible, max. until Tuesday noon GMT.

Never mind it's a 50f1.4 that I fixed/repaired, but mounted to a dslr. Just saw the no dslr note.
