Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Straight Out of Camera"

: Any subject but no post-processing allowed, not even cropping. (Resizing a file to fit Fark's data requirements is fine.)

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.

Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken, with as little alteration as possible either digitally in-camera or in your image editor during post-processing. No selectively applied digital effects! No removal or addition of image elements, no spot treatments, and no HDR images, please.

With few exceptions (red-eye removal, sensor or scan dust removal), modifications to the original photograph must be made evenly across the image.
See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

To have your photo website listed on the Farktography home page, please send your Fark username and url to admin(at) and we'll get you up forthwith. (also, indicate if you're willing to share your photographs for use as source images in PhotoShop contests)

- Drop by the Farktography Forum (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

- Stats can be found here.

Setting a bit lof a longer exposure time, I was able to capture Big Ben and a bus in the same image. My original intent was to do a multiple exposure so you could see through the bus, but my tripod refused to go low enough...

A view of the Basilica di Santa Maria Novello in Florence, Italy from our hotel terrace.

(This was also the direction of sunset. The hotel had the terrace locked when I tried to get up there for sunrise.)

This was originally a bunch of Christmas lights at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Shot is SOOC, taken with a homemade lens using a cookie press die as a shaped waterhouse stop. Conveniently enough, the plastic flower around the lightbulb was of the same shape as my aperture, allowing for perfection in shape-matching bokeh.
