The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Time once again to dive into the fast flowing creative waters of The Cosmic Photo Challenge and see what wonders we can discover beneath that shimmering surface.

This week I asked you to theme your post around the prompt; The dark and the light, however you choose to interpret that concept.

I went with the idea of composite duality, (a fancy term I just this moment invented) using careful editing to show negative cutaways of colour photos.

I was very pleased how these came out, so I continued mucking about until I stumbled on the weird optical illusion below.

Both of these side-by-side photos of a slate wall are exactly the same image, the only difference is the colour inversion. There has been no change in size, shape or angle in any way, yet somehow…

The final flash of inspiration came from the same door that has already featured in several challenge posts, reconstructed from two differently illuminated shots; one lit from inside the kitchen and one with the kitchen dark and the light on in the living room.

Now it’s time for you to light up our lives with your contributions.


To get involved with the challenge; check out the Cosmic Photo Prompt each Friday, then post a photo (or photos) on your blog the following Monday, with a pingback link to my Monday post.

Tag your posts with #CosPhoChal.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages, animation, gifs, or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.
