Rays of Inspiration


When I read this challenge, I instantly starting thinking of what things have been inspiring my photography recently. Since it seemed impossible to take a picture of all of you, I moved on to my next big inspiration -- light. I have discovered that lighting can make or break a photo. It proved to be a bit of a challenge to find just the right subject, but I feel this is the best shot I got that the focal point really is light.


Shamefully, I photoshopped the heck out of it. : )

I like the sun flare, even if you had to photoshop it to get it right. It's a very pretty picture!

VERY NICE! ALYNN, YOU GO GIRL!

I LOVE this shot! It's so beautiful. And hey, I think the fact that you photoshopped the heck out of it is great...you are learning those actions and what they do! That in itself is a skill!

Sun can be really annoying if you get it when you don't mean to or want to, but it can also be really great if you capture it intentionally, like you did. I really like the muted colors for the rest of the photo.
