*** Challenge #280 - Natural Light Results
1

First off, I want to apologize, I had meant to have this run for 2 weeks but entered the wrong date, that being said, with the number of great entries, another week would have made judging it a lot harder.

Lets start with some honorable mentions

Jacob's Ladder by Flashlight

Very nice balance in the lighting on this, I know how hard it can be to keep all of the color and detail when shooting directly into the sun, great job pulling it off.

The herd at Dawn by Churvasky

Very nice balance here also, even with the nice warm sky it looks like a frigid landscape, nice job capturing it

Sunbather by Public_af_lobster

I'm a sucker for big cats, they make great subjects, love this shot, you can almost see the yawn coming

#3

Side lit-by JEO126

The angle on this does it for me, along with the angle of the light, it looks like you were standing in the water at the crack of dawn, very nice.

#2

Morning light in the Sierras by Bathgate

Absolutely beautiful shot Michael, love the layers and the varying colors, it looks like a postcard.

#1

Spotlight Quail by Damnerd

Great timing on this one, it looks like she just stepped on stage into a spotlight, I'm guessing a minutes in either direction and you would have missed the shot, nicely done

So the torch is passed to you Damnerd, nice job everyone.
