Your "Dark" photos were illuminating. It was hard to pick just two photos from the 32 entries, so we went with our three favorites.

The jellyfish photo from Jackie Sunday of Mount Pleasant was taken at the South Carolina Aquarium. We liked the photo because it had good contrast with the dark of the background and the light of the jellyfish. It is tricky to get a photo in an aquarium because of the potential for the glass to reflect a flash.

Jacob Crawford took his photo inside the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Broad Street in Charleston. It has nice leading lines and is a different perspective of a church interior.

The black swan photo by Roxanne Wells of Irmo was taken at a black water swamp in Sumter. It is a nice contrast to photos that feature white swans.

We want to see what you can do with the timely subject: Spooky.

The rules: Send your best "Spooky" photo to by noon Thursday. Please limit entries to one per person. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken. If you want your photo to be eligible to run in the newspaper it must be at least 1,500 pixels and not have a commercial watermark.

On Fridays, we first announce the editors’ pick of the week at and publish an online gallery. We also declare a topic for the next week.

On Sunday, the photo pick of the week will appear in this section, Life.

All photos submitted also will be considered for publication in The Post and Courier’s yearly magazine, My Charleston.

We reserve the right to not publish any photo for any reason.
