Shooting Challenge: City Lights

Welcome to The Gizmodo Shooting Challenge, where Giz readers get to pit their photographic skills against each other for the admiration of their editors on a dedicated theme each week. This week’s challenge: City Lights -- submissions close 10am Tuesday.

If there's one thing Vegas is known for, outside of gambling and prostitution, it's the magnificent way the city lights up and night. Given CES is currently tearing up Vegas (or is that the other way around), now would be a great time to shoot city lights.

Please note that we've changed the submission rules recently, so make sure you read through them carefully.

1. The work must be your own. 2. Photos need to be taken the week of the contest. No portfolio shots please. 3. Explain (briefly) the photography equipment, settings, technique and story behind shot. 4. Entries must be submitted via the feedback form here; choose "Gizmodo Shooting Challenge" as the contact reason. 5. Don't forget to attach your image! (at least 800px wide) 6. One submission per person.

Submit your best photo by Tuesday, January 17, 2012, at 10am AEDT through the feedback form (select "Gizmodo Shooting Challenge" in the dropdown box). Save your files as JPGs, and use a FirstnameLastnameCITYLIGHTS.jpg naming convention. Include your shooting summary (camera, lens, ISO, etc) in the body of the email along with a story of the shot in a few sentences.

And don’t skip this story part because it’s often the most enjoyable part for us all beyond the great photos!
