Not to hijack this thread or anything...
Uh Oh! This is a thread that's likey to be a runaway hit! 'Randomness' being a very popular genre these days
But is flashlightforums.com going to be a random photography & food forum ? It might be better to spin off a separate Recreational Forum. Just my 2 cents.
If you insist on it, try these ideas.
- Create a contest around the pictures (e.g.  Can you quess the common name of the bird pictured? How about the dog? The lady? )
- Create Theme weeks to keep things a bit consistent
- Only use original photographs that are not Copyrighted by thier authors. Pleeeeeez!
- Etablish a hit list of banned topics ( Do you really want to see ANOTHER sunset shot ??)
To get the ball rolling on this here's a challenge.

Between December 9th, 2005 and January 9th 2006, post a photograph of anything that you choose (other than a wall, spooky trail or roadway at night) which you have lit ONLY with flashlights. detail which lights you used and where in the 'set' they were positioned. And yes! Camera settings!

Maybe a Mod can award a prize  for 'Best of Show' . I'm willing to throw in a couple of 'toys' as prize winnings

All I can say is WOW! These pictures are awesome!
I like sunsets, but have never taken a good one..PShizzel, did you use any special filters to bring out the blue?
Same question to you Lightstream, was it really That red?

ernsanada, I also thought.. "There's Wally's Light" !!! Very Nice..
Wish I could have found the Nest for the bird.. :) Very Nice Shot!
I hope the guy in the wheelchair was using hearing protection! :) I need That engine for my ATV!
BraddahBill, Looks like you make up for the SLR with Excellent technique! Beautiful Pics !

I had my standard UV filter on, and it doesn't change the color cast. It was really that red, no postprocessing - just a straight JPEG resized for the web and watermarked. Think I dialed in -2/3rd of a stop exposure comp. :)

You'd have to host it on a webpage and then link up to it. QT is a good format as most computers have the plug in.

I have photobucket.com, would that work. Not well versed in it but could email them.  I would say "ordinance on target" for them.
