Challenge 192 - Catch the Light

Challenge 192 - Catch the Light

For this challenge, focus on strong light and how it models and transforms the subject and its environment. No flat lighting allowed - a simple clue is to look for shadows since strong, directional light usually doesn't exist without them.

Also not allowed are gorgeous sunny landscapes or sunrises or sunsets or fantastic rays of light from the heavens. Yes, please capture the sunlight or artificial light but only as it illuminates the subject and adds contrast and impact through light and shadow in the image.

So go find the light.

Good hunting.
