    This is a really loose interpretation of nightlife. The only criteria is that the photo was taken at night. Examples of how you can interpret the theme are....

    classic night photography like this

    night/social like this

    or social/reportage like this

    or alternatively pictures of people/yourself being sick in soho/manchester/wherever.

    The point is that the picture has to clearly respresent nightlife in whatever form you want to represent it.

    The rules, as usual:

    * Up to 3 pictures allowed per person.
    * Post up the link, not the picture.
    * All entries must be in by the last day of March.
    * Only use pictures you photographed yourself.
    * If you edit the picture then tell us what you did.
    * Please don’t change pictures once you have entered them.
    * Voting starts on 1st of April and ends on 3rd of April 2006. Anyone can vote, you don't have to have entered. Vote for your 1st, 2nd and 3rd favourites. 1st choice is worth 3 points, 2nd 2 points and 3rd 1 point -- the entry with the most points wins and chooses the next theme.
    * You can use your own web space, photo.net, photobucket.com or pbase.com to host your pictures for free - or any others you choose or see fit to use.

    good luck

    Not sure if this is one of my best night shots, but I have to enter it because it's taken during an urban75 event: PRoD

    Taken with a Sony DSC-V3 set to Nightshot mode.

    I anticipated this earlier. Dusk & dawn are out because they are not night - they have their own names which mean they aren't night :eek:

    Seriously - whatever you want, dawn & dusk are on the cusp of night so go for it....

    How about the sun has to be below the horizon - that's what Nosferatu work to and let's face it , we're not much different :p

    ok. either sunrise or sunset are ok as long as the sun is below the horizon (thats the natural horizon not a building :p)

    i took dozens that night. it was the most amazing beautiful sunrise which changed through blues and purples to oranges and yellows and reds.
    anyway ive changed it now, rather than court controversy :)

    Dawn and dusk is not nighttime. Nighttime is technically the time beginning one hour after sunset and ending one hour before sunrise. You could include the gloaming as that is the name given to the hour that before sunrise or an hour after sunset.

    Nighttime:

    I was nearly right, it is actually only half an hour :)

    IMHO I don't think it should include sunrise or sunset but the gloaming is OK.
