    Lauren Flotte Savannah, GA USA While exploring industrial areas at night, certain structures stood out due to their isolation. They began to become more than items of industry, rather monuments to our own human struggle to move from isolation to togetherness.

    Omid Akhavan Chicago, IL USA Awarded by International Photography Awards (IPA) and Photographer's Forum, this photo is capturing a mysterious and silent sense of life. A sense that can't be observed under the sun rays, dreams that night hides under its shadows. (Maui, HI, 2010)

  • Shadow Dancer

    Omid Akhavan Chicago, IL USA The voyeuristic feel of the night is captured when the day light quietly tiptoes into the night, as does the dancer into her shadow. (Maui, HI, 2010)

    Hugh Jones Arlington, VA USA

  • Starship 2000, LA County Fair

    Hugh Jones Arlington, VA USA

As the sun sets, a whole new world of photographic opportunities presents itself.  Buildings, streets and time lapse take on a different light at night. But don't stop there - ever hear of "Night life"? Carnivals?  Animals? People? Theater? There is a voyeuristic feel to night images, the viewer senses that they are observing life from the shadows.  Urban lights create high drama -  colors intensify and shadows loom. In the country, things become scary and still.  Is there just a hint of the sunset left?  Time lapse can create fantastic swirls of lights creating abstract compositions.  Juror Tom Paiva chose 49 images for exhibition at the Vermont Photo Space Gallery.

Juror's Statement

When I review a night photograph, one of the most important criteria is the balance of light from the extreme highlights to the deepest shadows, regardless of whether it is b+w or color.  This tonality is important to keep the viewers interest.  A night shot should have a sense of mystery and the composition should make your eye move around the image.  Of course, it must be technically perfect to make the grade. Tom Paiv
