Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Boom! 2"

Description
: Take pretty pictures of things blowing up. Fireworks, mentos in diet coke, explosions of any type.

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.

My 8' tall, 17lb rocket on it's way to around 13,000' at Large Dangerous Rocket Ships 37 this past May. It had around 140lbs of thrust at that point in its flight.

When the explosion on the ground doesn't take the explosion in the air high enough.

Applying some defocus and zoom during a 5 sec exposure distorts reality.

I try to take photos of fireworks every year, and every year I fall short. This year I tried the roof of the parking garage where I park for work, and it was nice to not have to deal with crowds of people, but it was just a bit too far away. This year's fail: directly behind me was a private display that was small but incredible. Bright colors and just the right amount going off at one time. I should have turned my camera set up around but I was afraid that as soon as I did it would end and I'd miss the finale of the city display. But that private display went on for a good ten minutes. I watched it while shooting the other one.
