Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Frickin' Laser Beams"

Description
: Photos of any kind, type, or activity with a laser such as the light show at a concert, teasing your pet with one, using a pointer for a presentation, etc.

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.

Using a laser to trigger the camera. Had a hell of a time getting this one right. It was fun throwing darts in near complete darkness at thin red line!

Not for voting; can't really fairly compare photos to videos.  But that's a pretty cool video either way :)

Well this was a fun theme; thanks for sharing your photos, everyone! I'd like to take a moment to welcome Farktography First Timer dp3, as well as offer a warm welcome back to jaksmata, whom we hadn't seen in nearly a year--hope to see both of you back next week!

Results aren't final until the thread closes sometime after midnight, but at this point, congrats to top finishers Circusdog320, Lovesandwich, and jacksmata! Final winner will receive all due praise and glory via the weekly Fark NotNewsletter after the thread closes.

See everyone next week for "Happiness Is...(2)"!
