Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Hit Me With Your Best Shot 2"

Description
: Show us the best of your photography. Any subject, any style. No difficulties or other limitations beyond the standard rules.

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.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). 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.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or Farktography.net (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

Taken in Dayton, Ohio, sometime in April, 2015. My grandfather had died, and I walked outside to the back yard of their house and took this sunset photo op. It is beautiful because I will never be able to obtain this view again. It is sad because my grandparents had moved on. But, since this is Christmas, I mark it as a shot of hope. One that lets people know that the sun will set tomorrow, but rise again to give them the light to move on.

Great Blue Heron lifting out of water at Porters Pond, on the the Columbia River in Central Washington. This guy was taking off and landing near the shore for about 40 minutes until he finally got tired of me tracking him from landing to landing.

Last photo cropped out the rear of the jet, but the razor sharp focus was a win. It was the first time using this lens shooting moving objects. A couple hundred shots were logged over the weekend. These were my best.

Never submitted to one of these before, but here's something I took earlier this year with a Canon 7D with a 70 to 300mm lens.

Also, not sure how to turn on voting through my phone...

Again, no clue how to turn on voting....

On a windy day, this Michigan State University Marching Band member's flag repeatedly hit her face [198?] and this drill took up much of the rehearsal.
