Diwali Lights

This challenge closed almost 6 years ago.

The Challenge

Indian families and communities everywhere (including about half my neighbourhood) just finished celebrating Diwali, The Festival of Lights, and that made me think there would be plenty of excellent photos to show :-) Have a look at the avatar for illustration of what this challenge is about.

Please note, the following will not be accepted in this challenge:

  1. photos of plain fireworks won’t be accepted, since they could be from New Year’s or 4th of July etc., so we want to see something more specific, e.g. people as well as the lights, and a Description would be good :-)
  2. photos of just candles won’t be accepted, since they could be from any non-connected occasion
  3. …nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  4. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, so unless the subject of your photo contains writing (e.g. writing on an object connected with the festival), keep images with writing on them out of this, thank you.
  5. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you!

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!

Additional Information

  1. Please remember this is the photography challenge group :-)
