Challenge series hosted by mjdundee. Challenges start on Mondays.
The original intention of taking photographs was to catch the sunlight and the reflections from the objects within the frame. Lets face the other side. Take photographs that show the sun shining through or just show a shilouette or shadow. Back lit leaves e.g. are perfect models - either as a single macro or a hole tree in the back light.
