Canon DSLR Speed Challenge #79: Prime Time

(Hopefully) Everyone knows that the best times to shoot are at sunrise and sunset, so why not have a Speed Challenge about it. The lighting's perfect, and a lot of interesting (or possibly sketchy) stuff happens around those times.

There are 3 ways I can see going about this. I'll use some of my shots to illustrate the ways, and as inspiration.

1. All About the 'Set or 'Rise: The image represents the time of day/activities as well as it was taken at sunrise/set.

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'text/html' | Byte size: ZERO


2. Little to do With the 'Rise or 'Set: While it was take at sunrise/set, it has little or nothing to do with what goes down then.

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'text/html' | Byte size: ZERO


3. Mix: The subject is unrelated to sunrise/set, but the photo dislays the best lighting or color effects the time of day has to offer.

All of these were taken at sunset, but I encourage submitting sunrise and sunset shots equally. Have fun!

And now some space-wasting junk from the POTN lawyers:

Standard Rules apply:
Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Canon DSLR Camera
2. Time - any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size - Please see the Image posting rules.
4. Post-Processing - do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting - * ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.* Photo Name in the message subject line.* Camera model & lens used.* Notes -- post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
6. Commenting - No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner has been declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Have FUN!

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends - 8:00pm Pacific Time Tuesday, December 17, 2008. Winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
* Winner from this competition decides the theme of the next one (and judges it for a winner) after this competition is closed.
