The golden hour is the first or last hour of sunlight in the day. Your challenge is to submit a photo that makes full use of the warm, rich colours and fascinating lighting provided at this very special time of day. The elements that make up your photo are up to you. It could be the sun itself; the spectacular colours reflected off clouds or water; the golden-orange glow of the sky; a landscape that comes alive with rich colour; or a solitary object lit up in a special way. You don’t need to shoot into the sun or include it in your photo. Feel free to shoot away from the sun and use the warm, vibrant light in any way you see fit. However you decide to use this special lighting, it should be obvious from your photo that you took it during the golden hour.

The general guidelines are located here and cover most aspects of the challenge:

Any questions, here is my email…

Please title your entries. A creative title makes it fun and does help your photo to make an impact.

The challenge is open to all members of the Olympus Talk Forum and the photos must be taken with an Olympus digital camera. (Oly dSLR’s are included)

The Exhibition gallery is located here and all are encouraged to submit up to two photos. Exhibition photos DO NOT need to be from an Olympus camera.

Challenge entries (limit 1 per member) should be taken during the two week period starting Saturday the 14th of October and ending at midnight on Saturday, the 28th of October MDT. To check the clock for MDT in Alberta, Canada, see

Challenge entries and exhibition gallery submissions should be sent to the following e-mail address:

Please include the word “challenge” or “exhibition” in the subject heading. Be sure to include your dpreview forum name and include titles for your images.

Now go capture the first or last rays of the day.
