The recent forum difficulties have affected all of us in varying degrees. Our apologies, if you gave up due to forum-software difficulties. Things seem to have stabilized somewhat now.
This forthnight's challenge is "The Sun's Rays". The objective is photograph the rays of the sun for example asthe effect ofthe rising or setting sun, or light streaming thru a dimply lit area. You may also be able to show it with a combination of mirrors. I leave that to your creativity.
There are extensive descriptions of the Sun's Rays also known as "Crepuscular rays" (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crepuscular_rays
as an example).
Remember our new guidelines.
We have a few rules by which we try to abide. Here they are:
- Photographs should be taken during the challenge period, if possible. Archive photos can be used but you are encouraged to go out and shoot new photos for the challenge. [/*]
- Photos should be posted during the challenge period, if possible. Occasional "late" posting are OK as long as it doesn't get out of hand. [/*]
- Please limit yourself to two postings per day and two photos per posting. For those of you who post a photo as an attachment and then immedialy post a reply to the first message for the purpose of adding a second photo, this will count as one posting. [/*]
- Post-processing should be limited to BW or Sepia conversion, or adjustments to brightness, contrast, color balance, sharpness, and cropping[/*]
An example of the sun's rays is shown below. This is an example of Crepuscular Rays. Good hunting.
