Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "At the End of the Day"
: Show us a photo that shows, in some form or other, the end of the day. Difficulty: No sunsets.

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.

I saw the person wearing those boots walking/dancing all around the Dore Alley fair for hours. Then they were abandoned as the street cleared at the end of the day. I guess walking home in them was just too much?

Difficulty: No sunsets.

No problem-- this was around midnight, and over the hill an oil rig was firing a plume of gas a hundred or so feet high. The foreground is lit by the work lights on the rig I was working at.

Out- out are the lights- out all! / And, over each quivering form / The curtain, a funeral pall / Comes down with the rush of a storm / While the angels, all pallid and wan / Uprising, unveiling, affirm / That the play is the tragedy, "Man"
And its hero the Conqueror Worm.
