Set Subject: Mist / Clouds (Low Light) = (Manipulation = No)

Dear NPC Member

We have already announced the club's change to full HD club entries.

This mail serves as a reminder and/or notification to all members that all Photovault entries from this month (November) will be in 1920 x 1080 pixel format. The following implications are relevant: 

  • Max file size is now 2MB  (not 500kB as previously)
  • When the old format files are submitted, they will be  projected much smaller on the screen and judges will possibly penalize you
  • The current 1024x768 format photos can not readily be up-sized to 1920x1080... you will be 'stretching' pixels and loose quality 
  • You will need to resize your photos from the original jpg or RAW file to 1920x1080 pixel size.


Many of the best landscape photos are taken in mist and fog /clouds with low light conditions. There are great places to find fog, but a beautiful valley at times can be filled with the most enchanting mist. Forested areas are also great places that the mist creeps into. The best time of day to take photos of fog is usually very early in the morning before sunrise and sometimes later in the evening hours after sunset.
