Have no idea if this counts or not. But I took a pic of a Transformers toy's gimmick a few months ago. The only way I could get a REALLY good shot of it was to shoot it in a completely dark room. This was tricky because I had to hold a button down to make the gimmick work. If this doesn't fit here, sorry. :sad:



Regular pic, showing the inside of the Transformers toy.



And the pic with the gimmick lit up.

In my opinion, these shots do not meet the challenge at all. The idea is to shoot pictures of night scenes using available light not pictures of a light on a toy. BTW, what is a gimmick? I know what transformers (the toy variety) are but not gimmicks.

Sorry. The gimmick is basically anything the Transformer toy has that makes it a little more fun.

I wonder whether it would have met the challenge if you held the camera open and let that fellow roam the floor.
