***Challenge108 Light Focal Point**

Challenge 108 LIGHTING the FOCAL POINT**
Wot we mean is

You have to have a focal point in your picy that has the lighting as a noticeable feature**

So when viewed the viewer will have no doubts what the focal point is & the viewer will also see lighting that is noticeably enhancing the focal point over what general lighting would do.

So sunsets with a focal point that is lit from the setting sun.
Backlit translucent focal points etc.
Side lit focal points etc.
Side lit showing texture etc.

Lit from anywhere as long as the light looks or enhances better than what we call normal. You know wot I mean:-)
Etc, etc,etc:-)

Landscapes don't normally have a focal point but if the sun is illuminating a field of grass or flowers then the grass or flowers become a focal point over the general landscape.

This is really quite wide open BUT you will need to think of TWO things. A focal point & the nicer than normal lighting.
