I have a question about some of the photographs that are shots of transparent people. I was wondering how they did that without superimposing two or more pictures which I think is not allowed. Sorry if this is a basic question, I'm new to photography. By the way, a lot of the photographs are very impressive. I hope there will be many tutorials from this challenge.

Ok ok I confess. I'm a gestault voter. Don't think. Just react. So far my voting curve seems to be higher than most of what others are reporting but the images are falling into a natural spread. Then I do a little, very minor comparisoning by looking at the thumbnails for each level to see if there is any that look out of place. So far the most I've had to shift is 3. My eailer complaint was a backhanded complement. But still, judging interpertations is next to imposible because they are so different and so brilliant. Ditto compositions. Ok my curve will be even higher than usual. aelith (aka ex-teacher)

I haven't seen such a feature in a digital camera yet though technically it should be possible. I guess those pics are done with the poor man method, i.e. have very long exposure time, put a black card in front of the lens when part of the time is over, get rid of the people (or change position) and then remove the card and finish the exposure.

You are right however that this is much easier to do in photoshop, but against the rules.

Just about all my comments so far are asking about how I did my shot. I actually thought it might help my score to do something that completely relied on transparency but wasn't totally obvious (though I did try to hint at the "how" with the title), but I don't think that's the case because ppl don't like the effect. I guess I should take it as a compliment that so few people know how to do it without using PS.

I know that at least some of the Fujifilm cameras have a double exposure feature built in to the camera. And if the camera itself can do it, it's legal for the contest :)

A neutral density filter can also be used to increase the exposure time.
