    Light. I'm a big fan of it. Use it all the time and I think it's what makes my photos different. Granted, I mainly use artificial lighting where I can have full control over it, but light is light and it's awesome. Actually, some say the combination of light and shadows is what makes photography, I say these people are correct.

    This weeks competition is fairly open: shadow-play, artificial light, ambient light a simple well lit subject, just lights (don't, unless it's the best photo of just lights ever taken) etc. I'll leave the interpretation to you.

    So go on then, impress me with your best light.

    Rules:
    • The photographs must be your own work.
    • Be creative and have fun.
    • You may only submit one photo per contest.
    • Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.
    • The contest runs for one week, starting NOW! (see time/date stamp at the start of this thread.)
    • At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.
    • The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).

    Another (kinda) portrait risk... I love the glow from the ipad in this one.

    Just as well as I lost track of the date!

    Subtle use of artificial lighting as our assistant had an LED panel on a pole! Made such a difference though.

    Have posted this one of my daughter rolling around in POTD forums before, but played with black n white for the theme. I'm looking forward to some feedback from The Bad Guy!!
