RULES:

For the sake of the servers, we ask that the length of the photo on the longest side be no more than 1200 pixels - this can be set when uploading images to picture hosting websites.

The contest ends at 23.59 UK time on December 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on January 5th.

Only entrants may vote, and must submit their top 5 choices to me along with a topic idea for next month - winner's choice carries - and NOT to one of the other mods - they will not oversee the competition unless I am unavailable for any reason.

Only one photo is permitted per member, and may be changed at any point until the deadline. The photo has to have been taken by the member posting it.

Members may not vote for themselves, and since not voting gives you a higher chance of winning, it will be penalised by a deduction of 15 points [points are allocated as 15 for each first-placed vote, 10 for 2nd, 6 for 3rd, 3 for 4th and 1 for 5th] to redress the balance, unless for any reason the member in question is unavailable during voting, in which case alternative arrangements should be made in advance.

5 points are also on offer to the member who contributes the most creative interpretation of the subject matter, at my discretion where appropriate.

Please remember indecent images are subject to the same rules in this thread as the rest of the forum.

All that remains is for me to announce the title. Therefore the December 2014 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

NIGHT-TIME

Thanks guys. I figured this topic would give people the opportunity to post some nice pictures of Christmas lights if they don't already have something else suitable in their collection.

I've done a few long exposures on my tripod, this one in the summer, of the light pollution of the towns on the horizon over the Wash:
Image

I also took this last night, of my car in the moonlight:

I'll probably try and get something a little more Christmassy for my final entry though.

I am still "suffering" over missing last month's topic, so I am going to get at a couple to think about posted early.

This was taken about this time last year in Venice. the Basilica de Santa Maria della Salute

***** NOT AN ENTRY *****

Night / evening @ Honfleur
Long exposure without a tripod - put camera on a step and used the self-timer to avoid any camera shake.

Just thought it was a nice one to share.

I was going to enter one like this last month, but the only night it was decent weather to get out my flash decided to die so I couldn't get the whole height of the building, but it looks ok for night-time shot this month anyway! (shame it's the wrong time of year to get the moon above it.)

... what a tool.

By the way, the above is not a submission for this month. The only place where the lights are out is in my head.

Removing my own post because I misunderstood the scoring system. Now I know why PF1-Mod bought me a calculator in the moderator secret santa.

How many times, Aqua, no peeking in the stockings early!

Also to all entries so far... Incredible photos. I'm glad mods don't enter now, I can't hope to match the quality here.

Presumably Tufty has a photo of his sister asleep ready to go?

@ Howling Shadow - I was down in Bath for about 30 hours last year. I went out after the conference dinner and walked about Bath (I had very limited time so midnight was about the only time I could do). The Abbey is absolutely stunning at night.

And Bath seemed really nice. Very clean.

I just received a camera and I went into the neighborhood to take my first evening shot. Hopefully I get better over time. Here is a Night Time Christmas lighting shot:

Rather than submit one of my other photos, which were taken before this month started - and as I chose the topic I feel that would be unfair - I'm going to submit this photo I took on my phone last night in Norwich:
