Hey, SuperMod! If that ray of light was created by the starlight filter, it does not qualify. We are looking for natural sun rays created either by clouds, trees, or something like a window that lets a shaft of light through.

It is a very nice shot, however. Looking closer at the ray of light, I can see that it passes in front of the two lovers. That confirms to me that it was produced by the filter. I don't think a natural sun ray would do that.

Bother! I was asleep between 3:20am and 4:40am British Summer Time,so I missed the original image on which I could have improved my detective skills.

Kalypso, I didn't mean for you to withdraw the original image. It was a beautiful shot. It simply didn't meet the criteria for the current challenge. Normally, when an image doesn't meet challenge criteria, I don't require that the image be removed, especially if it is a good photo. This is a learning forum. Leaving an image in place that does not qualify, even though good, helps other people to understand what qualifies and what doesn't. There have been quite a few of these lens generated "rays" posted. I don't think everyone understands the difference between natural sun rays and those produced by refraction from the iris leaves of the lens.

Your replacement image is great and qualifies fully.
