Challenge 194 - Flat Light

Challenge 194 - Flat Light

Since Penny covered for me in the last challenge, I'm returning the favor by hosting this challenge.

For Challenge 194 I've chosen FLAT LIGHT, something I've struggled with during the many gray days we have here in the northeastern U.S. I'm hoping to learn from seeing how you folks make good images under challenging lighting conditions.

Here are the paramaters for this challenge: Any photos without strong shadows or directional light on the subject will be accepted. Please, no silhouetted subjects and no use of light boxes. The object is to use the sometimes less than ideal light that we photographers often have to deal with.
