Weekly Challenge #452 "Into the Light"
Posted By: StephenHampshire, 03-15-2019, 04:13 PM

Having unexpectedly won the last weekly challenge, it is my duty to set the next one!

I have decided to go with "Into the Light"
This f course could be a straight "Contre-jour" shot, but could also be something such as a plant growing out of the shade and into the light, or any movement from shadow into illumination, so I hope to see a range of interpretations!

Some examples below, after the ....
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

The challenge will close at midnight Friday 22nd March GMT i.e 7 days and 1 hour from this post!!.

I'm hoping to convey a sense of actually moving from darkness to light, this was taken at Dunn River Falls, Jamaica.
