Darkness falls across the land . . .
The midnight hour is close at hand . . .
Creatures crawl in search of blood . . .
To terrorize your neighborhood!

- Michael Jackson, Thriller



You decide what happens when darkness falls!
Is it macabre? Is it fantasy? Is it emotional?
It is up to you.




Welcome to our 2012 Photomanipulation Contest, "When Darkness Falls."
This contest is being held by Aeirmid and The-Sacred-Space.
We are grateful to Community Relations for backing this contest.
Any photomanipulator can join, and all are welcome.



Your task is to complete the sentence:
When darkness falls, _____
using a photomanipulation!
[In other words: Show us what happens when Darkness falls!]

You can interpret the sentence to mean anything you want.
It doesn't have to be dark or horror/macabre,
but it must be very clear that you are using the 'darkness' theme.
Fantasy is fine; Emotional is fine.
Remember: Out of darkness comes the light.
This is a theme anyone can use; be creative and reach beyond your boundaries!

I'm a big confused by "It doesn't have to be dark or horror/macabre, but it must be very clear that you are using the 'darkness' theme..."
So is it okay as long as the setting is in the dark or the night even if its a magical or even cheerful atmosphere?
Aeirmid's avatar
Right.... for example... out of darkness comes the light... it's all about how you frame it :)
redmoon-mistress's avatar
Thank you for the quick reply :)
